Re: [IP] Manicure/Pedicure

Not sure about how often.  My podiatrist said not to cut the toenails all
the way to the skin, cut them straight across, don't cut the corners but
file them a tiny bit so they aren't sharp (or else they'll snag on
something)... as for getting a pedicure he said definitely tell them you are
diabetic, test the temp of the water they use with your finger before
putting your feet in, and don't let them use razors (I think it's used to
scrape off dead skin for "normal" people).
