Thank you, I thought it was, and so did my Pedicurist, since I only have one toenail curling now and when she started doing my pedicures I had several toenails curling. She has all but one laying flat. She gave me a liquid to apply twice daily, something she told me was only available to techs, but I had an adverse reaction to it and stopped using it.
My Nail Tech told me they were being told to soak in Listerine and apply Vicks VaporRub twice daily. So far no change but I've only been using it about 3 weeks.
Your nail tech is not allowed by law to diagnose nail diseases or disorders. She is only allowed to tell you what she suspects and then to send you to your doctor for a proper diagnosis. She is also not allowed by law to work on nails that are infected unless she has been given written permission to do so by your doctor. If she is treating the disorder (infection) and something goes wrong, she is leaving herself wide open for a lawsuit. She should know all of this!!!!
If she does not properly sanitize her instruments, implements, files and drill bits after she works on you, she can spread the infection to all of her clients.
You shold see your physician for a proper diagnosis before you do anything else.
