A Woman Loses Her Toenails After Having a Fish Pedicure

September 06, 2018

When a young woman’s toenails separated from her toes, she asked for help from the doctor. Surprisingly, the fish pedicure was the cause for this case.

 
A fish pedicure involves soaking the feet in a tub of water with small fish called “doctor fish.” These fish eat human skin and nibble away at rough cuticles and calluses. This solution is considered as a “natural” beauty treatment and it is still a trend today.
This treatment can leave the feet smoother, increase blood circulation, kill off fungus and bacteria, and simultaneously treat eczema and psoriasis. According to a study, this method has been found to be effective in treating psoriasis.
 
The women went to the doctor after experiencing half a year of trouble with her toenails. She had reported to have no previous trauma, no history of major disease, no medical issues, and no use of medications last year. However, she had a fish pedicure several months before noticing the problem with her toenails.
 
The doctor diagnosed that the woman has suffered from onychomadesis, which occurs when the nail separate from each other, causing the nail shedding. The doctor gave all other potential causes of onychomadesis, from wearing tight shoes and high heeled. And, the fish pedicure may be the exact cause of her onychomadesis.
 
This is the first case that the condition has been associated with a fish pedicure. The doctor also gives other potential safety hazards associated with fish pedicures, such as the transmission of infections when the fish and tubs can not be properly sanitized. Besides, a bacterial outbreak among these fish can transport among pedicure spas. These fish were found to have bulging eyes, and hemmorhaging around the mouth and gills. Therefore, the doctor recommends patients should not have fish pedicure.
