These fingers that contracted herpes.
Kristina Preston got the virus in 1998 when she went to a local nail salon in Aurora, Colorado, according to ABC News. When she left the salon, her thumb cuticles “were burning and wouldn't stop,” and two days laters, blisters started forming and had spread to all 10 fingers. Two doctors reports confirmed that the infection was herpes. In addition, Preston suffered “upper respiratory sicknesses, pneumonia, bronchitis, strep, ear infections, and was constantly fatigued.” She won a jury award of $3.1 million against the salon.
