Wearing artificial nails. An infection can develop in the gap
between the artificial nail and the real nail, especially if a loose nail is
glued back on without first being cleaned with rubbing alcohol. Nail manicures
and certain nail products can damage the nail or cuticle, making the nail more
susceptible to infection.
