    Hi,

    I'm currently still using liquified phenol for nail surgery. As it is soon to be banned from sale, I have been searching for an alternative. Seen a few discussions on here (all quite old discussions) about phenol crystals, EZ swabs. I've tried the EZ swabs before and wasn't impressed, in my opinion not enough phenol and the applicator was quite bulky to squeeze down the side of the nail. I see others mentioned an increase in regrowth cases after switching to these.
    The other option mentioned is sodium hydroxide, does anyone have experience with this?

    Ta for reading

    I asked my compounding pharmacist, to make a batch of liquefied phenol.
