Skin Care Experts See Surge in Allergic Reactions to Nail Products

Don't Try This At Home: Increased consumer home use of products containing chemicals to bond and cure acrylic and gel nail treatments are causing the problem.  When used correctly and with the correct equipment by trained professionals, the chemicals are harmless.

According to www.bbc.co.uk, skin care experts are seeing a surge in serious allergic reactions to some nail treatment products. Patients are presenting with nail beds and cuticles that are very sore and sometimes blistered. The British Association of Dermatologists believes that increased home use of products containing chemicals to bond and cure acrylic and gel nail treatments are causing the problem. If used correctly and with the correct equipment by trained professionals, the chemicals are harmless, but increased use of kits that are available to the general public online and in retail stores is leading to more and more serious allergic reactions.
