Allergic reaction to gel nails

Dermatologists warn about gel nails allergic reactions

Dermatologists are urging the public to be wary of gel nails and gel polish home kits where insufficient curing of the products can cause an allergic reaction.  Allergic reactions can also be caused by nail technicians who have not had sufficient training about the products and procedures.

Allergic reactions may involve the natural nail loosening from the nail bed or a severe itchy rash on the fingertips, and potentially anywhere on the body where the nails have touched; face, eyelids, neck.
