Brief Answer:
Rush to the ER

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Phenol is corrosive.

Poisoning with it is dangerous.

Though the amount taken is less, I would recommend a visit to the ER.

You may need a shot of IV antacid.

Do visit the ER at as soon as possible.

Wish you good health.

Brief Answer:
Continue antacid

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

If there are no effects till now, then I would consider you safe.

Take Tab Pan 40 30 min before food for 5 days from now. Continue taking mucaine gel 10 ml thrice daily.

This would suffice.

Wish you good health.
