A trip to the salon for a day of pampering is meant to do the body well, but when cosmetologists aren’t following regulations, they could be putting your body at risk. As experts explain, when sanitary procedures aren’t followed, serious health issues can arise, but there are a few things you can look out for before sitting in the chair. David Andreone, DPM, a podiatrist at UT Health East Texas, says he frequently treats clients for infections they've picked up at nail salons.

“[The] Last one I had was about a week ago; it’s pretty common,” says Dr. Andreone. “Fungal infections, bacteria like Staph, Strep, E.coli, and, Pseudomonas. You have to be aware of the environment that you’re in when you go to a nail salon like that.” He adds that in some severe cases, he has even had to amputate when the infection reached the bone.
