FL PODIATRIST STATES THAT INFECTIONS FROM PEDICURES CAN BE VERY COSTLY

BAOCA RATON PODIATRIST, DR. BRET RIBOTSKY STATES "WOMEN'S TENNIS PLAYER VICTORIA AZARENKA MISSED OUT ON BETWEEN $22,000 AND $138,000 LAST WEEK WHEN SHE COULDN'T TAKE THE COURT FOR HER SEMI-FINAL MARCH AGAINST SERENA WILLIAMS AT THE BRISBANE INTERNATIONAL TENNIS TOURNAMENT.  THE REASON FOR THE WITHDRAWAL: AZARENKA'S RIGHT BIG TOE HAD BECOME INFECTED AFTER WHAT SHE TERMED A 'BAD PEDICURE EXPERIENCE.'"

PODIATRIST RIBOTSKY STATES, "TOENAIL-BORNE INFECTIONS ARE NOTHING TO LAUGH AT.  I'VE HAD TO PUT SOME PATIENTS ON MEDICATIONS, GIVE THEM TETANUS SHOTS - AND SOMETIMES EVEN HOSPITALIZE THEM, SO THEY COULD RECEIVE INTERVENOUS DRIPS - AFTER CONTRACTING INFECTIONS FROM PROFESSIONAL PEDICURES."

MY FOOT CLINIC RECOMMENDS THAT PEOPLE RECEIVE MEDICAL PEDICURES ONLY AND THEN GET YOUR TOENAILS PAINTED ONLY AT ONE OF  THESE SPAS.  FUNGAL, BACTERIAL INFECTIONS AND WARTS CAN BE CONTRACTED AT SOME OF THESE SPAS IF THEY DO NOT STERILIZE THEIR EQUIPMENT PROPERLY.
