Yall might already be aware of this info, I on the other hand had no idea i was at risk going to the nail salon until i was dx with hep c. I went for a routine pedicure, which is totally out of character, but i wanted my feet to look pretty when i met my new boyfriend. My pedicure was a couple of days before new years about the same time i met my boyfriend for the first time. I believe that might have been a big mistake. I am a very cautious person and am never exposed to blood, hell i don't even sit on other public toilets, i am constantly sanatizing my hands and what not...who would have thought you can sit down for a hour of relaxation and come out with a disease.It turns out that most of the cleaner they use don't kill Hep C nor HIV. I honestly thought that everywhere cleaned their instruments like a dental office would with a vault that uses steam and water to sterilize stuff. Obviously i was wrong. I just wanted to make everyone aware if they don't or can't remember any way that they could have gotten this you may want to think back, did you have a manicure or pedicure, its just a possibility. Talking about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just makes me wonder why stuff like this happens? And how do you hold these places responsible for putting people at risk? it just isn't fair. Looks like something could be done to make these places use the same sterilization process for instance the vaults because that is the best way to do it. I mean they make dental office clean all their instruments the same, because they are exposedd to blood, just as pedicure instruments can be exposed to blood and skin cells and bacteria of other people. Sorry just venting a little, i am just feeling helpless and like these places are getting away this and there are small children that go with their parents and stuff to get this done all the time.
