You are in the right place and I can assist you - in part. It is not uncommon, unfortunately, for individuals that receive manicures and pedicures from establishments that have not adhered to proper sanitation protocols do develop infections. In some cases this can be severe and debilitating. You need to be evaluated by a physician without delay. I would strongly advise against not waiting to see if what you are describing will resolve on its own.
The following link from the University of Iowa talks about infections from manicures: http://www.uihealthcare.com/kxic/2007/august/fungus.html
ok,I do not thing this is infection at all.It das not look like, anyway.Problem is ,that I can not put it off with usual polish remover.Andrea
Hi .Have to go for my scan ,back now.Yes this is soud right,looks and feels like shelac nails.How to remove them?It is not working with usual remover ,but mayeby I just dont know how?
According to my wife, shelac manicures are difficult to remove. She goes to a nail salon to have hers removed. I'd call around and ask nail salons where you live if they have experience with shelac nails. If you find one, you can see what they would charge to remove them.
As a pointer, and maybe you already do this, when you go to salons it is safest to bring your own manicure kit so you don't have to worry about salons cleaning theirs correction in order to avoid cross contamination and infection.
