Manicures and pedicures are a well described risk factor for HCV along with boxing and rugby. Although the risk is very low indeed.  Anywhere where blood is exchanged. You should as should everyone, be tested for hepatitis A, B and C by your MD. If you are negative for A and B you should get vaccines. PS you should also buy your own manicure instruments and bring them in for the manicurist to use!  DTD
