Roxy Jacenko reveals she’s suffering from a very nasty illness – and says it’s her kids’ fault
Roxy Jacenko has admitted that she suffers from a very unpleasant illness.
The 43-year-old PR queen revealed on Instagram on Friday that she had an infestation of head lice that needed treatment.
In the photo, Jacenko sat on a chair while a nurse treated her infested hair to remove the bugs.
Head lice, also called nits, can cause itching on the scalp, while the bugs themselves are sometimes visible in the hair.
In her caption, Roxy revealed that she contracted the “nits” from one of her children.

‘[O]”h the joy of children,” she wrote. ‘[Child] “Come home, catch nits – and then I’ll understand.”
“A big gun,” she added, referring to the nurse attending to her scalp.
The health bombshell comes after Roxy gave her fans a shout out after sharing a video of her 11-year-old daughter Pixie getting an eyelash lift.

The mother-of-two shared a video of her daughter getting her eyelashes done at a salon in Sydney on Instagram on Saturday, and fans quickly went into a frenzy.
“She’s too young for that.” What’s next, botox and lip plumpers? a fan sniffed.
“You use your platform to teach young girls to adhere to beauty standards?!” I never buy your products,” added another.
However, others were quick to support Roxy and Pixie, saying they have the right to do whatever brings them joy.

“I had it done when I was her age.” Some people need a life!’ One supporter wrote, while another added that Pixie “looked fabulous”.
Roxy explained in the comments that pixie’s red hair meant her natural lashes were barely visible and the procedure helped her stand out.
The small business owner-turned-millionaire was treated to a new set of eyelash extensions this weekend, which can cost as much as $350.

Roxy shared a photo on Instagram Stories describing the moment Pixie underwent the treatment.
“How the tide has turned.” Now I’m a @pixiecurtis content creator too, joining @fancylash today,” Roxy wrote in the caption.
“The downside of red hair means you look like you don’t have eyelashes, I’m told?!?” Until now,” she added.
Fans were divided and quickly took to the comments section to voice their opinions
Pixie made her fortune as the face of the Pixie’s Bows line of accessories and the Pixie’s Pix toy brand, companies founded by her mother.
She has already “semi-retired” retired from her toy empire to focus on her education.
Roxy has two children, Pixie and son Hunter, eight, with husband Oliver Curtis.
