Re: acrylic nail infection
If there is exposed nail bed (with liquid) under the acrylic, you need to soak off the acrylic and let it heal. It should be kept clean and DRY adn it cannot heal or dyr out with the overlay in tact. YOu will need to leave the acrylic off tha tnailuntil the damaged portion has grown off the free edge. This can take at least 3 months depending on your genetics for nail growth. Leaving the overlay in tact can allow the liquid to make even more of the nail plate separate from the nail bed. It has to heal and it cannot heal properly if it is covered. Once the overlay is removed, the skin can dry out and if you apply peroxide a couple times a day, you can prevent infection.
