Mum-of-four could lose her thumb after fake nails left her with infection ‘more painful than childbirth’

by pregnancy journalist

A MUM has been left fearing she could lose her thumb after her nail became infected after a visit to a salon.

Lowri-Anne Wilson said the pain was worse than childbirth, with the 31-year-old left with “pulsing pain” on her left hand after having fake nails put on.

The 31-year-old said she had gone to hospital but was told that the salon would have to remove the nail.

But she claimed the salon refused, sending her back to hospital.

The mother-of four said: “I had an x-ray and I was told that if the infection had spread to the bone then I could have lost my thumb.

“I am now on antibiotics for the pain but that isn’t working.”

She said that she had been on probation at her new job, losing the position as she couldn’t work.

She said: “I was on gas and air for two hours, it was the worst pain that I have ever experienced and I have had four children.

“This is the first lot of surgery that I will be going through, there will be others to follow when the nail starts growing back.”

She added: “This could happen to anyone if you have your nails done.

“I would never have them done now, it’s just not worth it.

“I’ve been told that my nail may never grow again, and it’s going to take at least six months to heal.”
