Q.

Is it safe to apply acrylic nails on an asthmatic client?

A.

 Whenever a nail technician is in doubt about a client’s medical condition, it’s best to instruct the client to get her doctor’s advice. Generally speaking, artificial nail products are safe for use on people with asthma. Clients are exposed to very small amounts of vapors or dusts, so this type of service is unlikely to aggravate this condition. However, nail technicians with existing asthma can sometimes feel their symptoms worsening, especially if they continually overexpose themselves to vapors or dusts while doing little (or nothing) to minimize overexposure. If asthma symptoms do seem to be worsening, it is always best to consult with a medical doctor to determine the cause. Many types of vapors and dusts can aggravate existing asthma and only a qualified medical doctor can help determine the true source of the problem. -- Doug Schoon
