Many people face similar problem after getting pedicure or manicure done in salon. You have basically developed a bacterial infection known as paronychia
. This occurs as during pedicure or manicure it is a common practice to remove cuticle. Cuticle is a has a barrier function for nails and prevents any infection from developing. To treat the same, soak your feet in warm saline water for few minutes followed by application of topical antibacterial cream. If its too painful take oral analgesic
. Also avoid wearing occlusive foot wear till the area heals. Hopefully it should resolve in couple of days. If the infection seems to persist, consult a doctor to get a prescription of oral antibiotic.
When you get your next session done, ask the personnel not to touch your nail cuticle!
