Winston-Salem Ms. Nightmare leads a pedicure to change



WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The NC Board of Cosmetics Art Examiners explains what tools are unsuitable for pedicure after a Winston-Salem woman's nightmare pedicure became viral.

Tracy Martinez is at home recovering from what began as a routine pedicure

She says she was hit at her ankle by a tool that her nail technician used on a pedicure at the end of June, but that's none of it thought.

The next day she felt under the weather.

"I went to drop my daughter for a test, I went to a local shop and I just sat in the parking lot on my phone and all of a sudden I just had this crazy cold, I was so cold," Martinez said ,

She ended up in the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a bacterial infection called cellulitis. The doctors said streptocraps had entered the blood stream by cutting her ankle.

Martinez believes that it came from the tool of her technician.

During her two-week hospital stay, she researched callus shavers were invalid in the state. She shared her experiences and graphic photos on Facebook to warn others of the dangers of the tool.

According to Martinez's description, what she most likely used is a foot rasp that looks like a cheese grater's foot

This are legal in salons in NC, but not in every state.

"I thought everything was a callus shaver." Martinez said:

So, when she contacted the consumer department of the NC agency on the website of Cosmetic Art Examiners and saw that callus razors are banned, she believed what A callus shaver is a smaller tool that has a literal razor in it to cut calluses.

Confusion was also compounded by the fact that a Google search for Callus razors produced results for two different tools.

According to WFMY News 2 was asked questions, the state has changed the language on its website. Rather than saying that callus razors are banned for use or possession in salons in North Carolina, the section has been expanded for clarity.

It is now said that razor-type callus razors banned since 2004 say: "In view of the ban, many businesses have turned to the use of various types of rasps, files and other abrasives for the care and treatment of feet."

Since certain cheese rips look like a microplane foot file, the ladder on the board also contained a line stating that tools must be used "in the manner intended or described or detailed by the manufacturer of the machine."

At WFMY Taheshah Moise of News 2, Lynda Elliott, the Executive Director of the Board, suggested that images could be helpful in reducing the chance of confusion, Elliott said she would consider adding some.
