In this regard, what are hazards and risks in nail care?

Nail salon workers can be exposed to biological hazards if they come into contact with infected skin, nails, or blood from a co-worker or client. Diseases that can result from exposure to infected blood include hepatitis and AIDS. Nail salon workers can also get fungal infections, such as athlete's foot, from clients.

One may also ask, what should you avoid after a manicure? Certain products such as sunscreen, tanning lotion, insect repellents and oil based products can cause the gel polish to lift. When using these products, try to avoid getting the product on your nails and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards.

Follow these infection prevention strategies to decrease your risk:

  1. Do not get a manicure or pedicure if you have an infection on your hands or feet.
  2. Do not get a manicure or pedicure if you have any open wounds, including bug bites, bruises, scratches, cuts, scabs, and poison ivy.
  3. Look for a license.
