Can I get nail fungus from a pedicure?

Likely, remember that although funguses may be present in the skin around the nails, one may not develop a nail infection without history of injury, such as bruised nails from short shoes, inflammation from an ingrown nail, or from cutting the nails incorrectly or too short. The repetitive trauma that may occur during a routine pedicure may be enough to allow the fungus to enter below the skin infecting the nail plate.
