disc reduction of non pathological nails

Dear Pods I’m in a quandry, in my 6yr post graduate practice I frequently use a moores sanding disc on a drill to flatten off calloused prominences, reduce mycotic nails, flatten halos around prominent hd’s, reduce fissures, promote skin to skin adhesion, the usual suspects. I cannot find any significant contraindication or risks to their use other than slicing cuts could be caused if used by an inexperienced practitioner. Sterility does seem to be an issue but there are no guidelines on their use in the literature.
