Woman Claims She Almost Lost Her Leg After Serious Infection From Pedicure

A North Carolina woman who claims she nearly lost her leg from an infection she got during a pedicure.

In June, she went for a pedicure at a “very clean” salon. The next day she was sick with fever, chill, nausea and vomiting. She was off balanced and her leg was huge as well. 

Later an ambulance took her to a hospital where she was told she had cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection that can rapidly become life-threatening. 

Doctors thinks the woman got cellulitis after she was cut by a callus cutter, that was used during her pedicure.

Allegedly in North Carolina, callus cutters are prohibited and she was unaware until after she was hospitalized for two due to the infection.

The woman is on medication for the next 3 months and she will also have to wear a compression sock to prevent any future infections.
