A twenty year old mother of one claims she contracted an aggressive nail infection after visiting a nail salon that has left her unable to look after her toddler daughter.

Do you worry about contracting infections from nail salons? Does this put you off having your nails done?

Yes, this is the reason I will not have my nails done at a budget nail salon.

I do not go to nail salons, so I am not worried about getting nail infection but I can imagine how easily someone can catch an infection at such places.

My girlfriend went to one, they did her feet and she noticed they really did not clean the foot bath well, after her feet were done!!
A few weeks later, her nails got a very bad fungus on her toe nails.Took a while to get it fixed.
I would never go to one, and 'wonder' how they stay in business?

Even if you don't get a infection , if you see how they wash out the foot baths......you know it is not good enough by far.

When I pass the one in my shopping centre, I look at the women in there and think 'why' do they take the risk.

Also how come the Health Dep...have not gone into the hygiene issues with these places?
That's a great question jonaj. My guess is that these places generate a lot of money, which invariably adds to the growth of the economy, and also because it would be a pain in the bum to police given that there is at least one of these salons on every corner.

I just wish people knew that going into one, can and in some cases lead to a real health issue.

That book looks interesting! I'll check-if my local Library has it!

BTW, it's the State Health Dept you should ring, if worried. It's got NOTHING to do with Police!

Hi jonaj, I also think exactly the same when passing one or ten of them in local Westfield S/C.

Obviously, women in there, didn't see that ACA Report about that young woman!
I can't believe they're always ALL packed out!

I don't think Vee meant to call the Police....she meant ''hard to police''(meaning the health dep keep an eye on it). or the like.

That's something I'll never worry about since I don't go to nail salons. I'm not put off by it, I just don't have the time, money or inclination to go.
No, I've had my nails done for over 30 years now and never a problem. I am particular which salon I go to and would never venture into the high volume budget salons.
No, because I'd NEVER go to one of those.
Unhygienic, untrained staff using dirty, filthy instruments, none of which get sterilised from customer to customer. Eeeeeewwww!

I attend appointments with my Podiatrist, each month to look after my feet. Of course, haven't had an infection.

I can't understand why people would go to places like this. Not worth your health. Cost to repair, if that can actually happen, far outweighs money 'saved'.
I do not go to nail salon,luckily for me i have good stong nails.
