Are people who give women manicures qualified to give one to a man?

Whether you are a man or a woman, it’s important to remember that manicures and pedicures done at a salon can potentially spread illnesses, including fungal and bacterial infections, staph infections, warts, and other diseases. Make sure that the implements and foot soaking tubs are sterilized after use on every client. If you plan to have regular manicures and pedicures, consider bringing your own manicuring tools to the salon to reduce your risk of contracting an infection. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
