A TikTok user from the UK has gone viral after revealing that she suffered a ringworm outbreak all over her face after not cleaning her makeup brushes right after her friends used them, NY Post reported. 

Louaira Dela Cruz, 22, documented the horrifying experience on TikTok, sharing several updated videos and warnings to viewers about the disastrous incident.

“I don’t know what it is and doctors don’t know what it is, but — trigger warning — this is what’s been going on,”

Dela Cruz said initially when she recorded the rashes on her face. 

“That is ringworm. How do the doctors not know that? Wow!”

one TikTok user commented under the post. Two days later Dela Cruz returned to TikTok with an update confirming that the red circular rashes on her face were indeed ringworms.

“Skin update… I know sharing is caring, but you best believe I’m not letting anyone touch my makeup brushes or sponges ever again, because this is ringworm,”

she stated.

Ringworm is caused by a fungus that can cause irritation to the skin, including itching, redness, and circular rashes that can spread if left untreated. According to the CDC, ringworms can be spread through environmental circumstances or by sharing towels, bed linen, and other personal items.

On Thursday Dela Cruz shared another update with the caption,

“Hopefully the worst of it has passed and now just healing.”

Seemingly excited about her recovery, Dela Cruz has shared that she has learned her lesson from this experience and will not be sharing her makeup brushes with friends again.

“I feel like we’re in the recovery process,”

she said.
