One Response to “Slight trim during omer”

  1. If he wants to trim his moustache because it interferes with his eating (not clear from the question), then it is OK.

    If he wants to do it for refuah, also OK. However, an itch is not really a sickness, but merely discomfort, and the whole point is that we should be feeling some discomfort during these days.
