Not me, but there was a thread on here and, several geeks said how they had changed from one type of service to another because of the reaction and another one had to wear surgical gloves for a few months but found that after that so long as she was very careful not to come into direct contact with the monomer she was fine.
I have a client that I thought was allergic to the monomer and the geeks suggested that we do a skin test just to be sure and it turned out she was allergic to the tip glue, (I know thats the wrong word, but can't spell the correct word that begins with a:lol:) so I changed the brand I was using and problem solved, point being it worth doing a skin test to be sure what it is you are allergic to.:hug:

Sounds like you're gonna have to then chick, you could try the gloves route, but sounds like it's a no no....

just out of interest did you have your nails done regularly before you did the course?

you probably already do but in between each client wash your hands and arms as far as you can and your face so it doesnt start there, if the dust from filing is on your skin all day there is more chance of it irritating you
