'Dad agrees to let daughter wax his nose hair *INSTANT REGRET* '
A man's tongue turned black and developed thick 'hair' - after he was put on a pureed diet following a stroke.
The man in question is a 50-year-old who grew a thick carpet of dead skin and bacteria on his tongue after the two months he had been eating blended meals and soups.
He then contracted the unusual but harmless condition, known medically as lingua villosa nigra. This all happened while he was in care following a stroke that left him paralyzed on the left side and made it difficult to chew.
He was taken to Medical Trust Hospital in Cochin, Kerala when his tongue showed yellow stains caused by getting food getting stuck in the "hairs."
After a simple routine recommend to rid himself of the yellow stains that featured a thorough cleaning, the condition cleared up after 20 days.
