Countess Vaughn’s Lacefront Nightmare

Recently, Countess Vaughn told The Doctors that after five years of rocking lacefronts with no problems, she noticed pus oozing from her scalp and a horrible smell. Ignoring it, she waited six months to get it checked out. By then, the damage was serious: She has lost skin from her ears, hair from her edges and the melanin among her hairline.
