Area resident Collin Sheldon has filed suit against the Beaumont nail salon Tic Tac Day Spa, alleging she received a staph infection following her pedicure.

The suit was filed June 14 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Jan. 22 Sheldon received a pedicure at the nail salon by an unnamed employee.

During the exfoliation treatment, Sheldon told the employee her feet were beginning to hurt. She was told the burning sensation was normal, the suit states.

"Following the pedicure, plaintiff's feet continued to hurt ... and had become red, swollen and oozing," the suit states. "Plaintiff went to her doctor, who diagnosed a staph infection."

The suit alleges the defendant negligently applied too much of the exfoliating chemical and then failed to take remedial action.

The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

She is represented by Beaumont attorney Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups & Terrell.

Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. A190-268
