It’s been reported that dermatologists are noticing a rise in the number of patients who suffer “life-changing” allergies brought on by gel nail paints, which might prevent them from getting certain procedures like cataract surgery, joint replacement, or dental care.
It’s possible that the chemicals in gel nail polish, known as methacrylates, might trigger an allergic reaction if they seep into the skin, causing nails to loosen and the skin to develop a severe, itching rash.
The chemical, which is used in common treatments like fillings and hip replacements, becomes intolerable to those who have this response and would therefore prevent them for having surgery in the future even if they were in desperate need.

The UV lamp that hardens polish is not always utilised for long enough during at-home gel manicures, which is what most likely causes the unpleasant reaction. However, if the nail technician is inexperienced, even salon manicures might be dangerous.
Top doctors concur that being hurried out of the salon and not allowing the nails to set correctly was a warning sign after British people reported experiencing “painful peeling,” swelling, and blisters after getting a manicure.

Symptoms include nails loosening and falling off, sores appearing on fingers and red and swollen cuticles. Additionally, it might cause a severe rash on the upper chest, neck, and face. You can transfer symptoms to such places by simply brushing your nails across your arms or touching your face.
Today, the government’s Office for Product Safety and Standards announced that it was looking into the matter and advised allergy-suffering Britons to get in touch with their regional trade standards office.
We can’t deny that a fresh set of nails does look delicious but make sure that you’re getting them done somewhere professional, by a pro technician and that you don’t end up like any of the pictures in this article!
