Nail Salon Infections – Common Signs and Symptoms
Several things may alert a patron of a nail salon of a problem. Typical signs include:
- The nail area will look red and irritated
- A bacterial infection of the hands or feet
- A rash or fungus appearing around the nail
- Technicians that are not trained in proper sanitation procedures
- Removal of too much nail
- Technician not inquiring about existing medical conditions or allergies
In severe cases of exposure to viral, fungal or bacterial infections can result in amputation. Pay careful attention to any sign that may point to any of these
There are Cases of Negligent Nail Solon Workers causing infections:
Nail salon technicians are liable for keeping their salon clean and germ free. Often, due to bad employee practice and carelessness, nail salons pass fungi and infections from client to client by not using proper sanitation procedures of manicure instruments.
Nail technicians should be aware of any existing condition of the patron. They should take extra precautions if an open wound is visible, or refuse to service. A well-trained nail technician will know the proper procedure and ask the patron the correct questions.
