Important: Dangerous Infections You Can Get When You Bite Your Nails


Biting your nails might seem like a minor bad habit. The frequency of the habit might lead you to believe that it’s no big deal. However, it might surprise you to know that there are some truly nasty (and dangerous) infections that can result from biting your nails.
