Re: carmex users? u must look at this!

Carmex has PHENOL????? OH, my GOSH!!! That stuff is a poison.

In fact, in the 90's, I had to have two ingrown toenails removed (they don't take out the whole toenail, just along the sides that are ingrown), and to kill the nail bed on the sides of my toes, the doctor used phenol, which burned (I didn't feel it, of course, because they numbed me up with Lidocaine), and turned both the cotton swab she was using AND the inside of my toe BLACK!

The toe cleared up & everything was fine & looks normal, but phenol is NOT something that should be used in a lip medication.

Oh, WOW! I had no idea!

Phenol is EXTREMELY deadly. My husband worked on barges and they were trained to avoid it. One drop can kill you in minutes. I think it's also used in Chloreseptic....

I use Blistex Lip Medex, since I was in 6th grade... it's still a 4, moderate hazard, but burt bees makes me ill so I can't use that either. hrm
