    Does anyone know? I believe formaldehyde is the main poison for making me sick. Probably a lot of others also.

    I take this with a grain of salt.

    "Supposedly" this is what I discovered.

    Formaldehyde is also know as: methanal, formalin, formol, methyl aldahyde, and methylene orade(sp).

    It is good for: disinfectant, kills bacteria, used as a preservative in vaccines (!!!), gonorrhea, diptheria, whooping cough, open and infected wounds, ulcers, (these are with a dilution of 4% of 40%...whatever that means.

    A dilution of 1:500: mouthwash, to irrigate and clean catheters.

    1:250: to clean sick rooms.

    25% solution: packing and drainage of sinuses, pus cavities, and abcesses.

    4% solution: antiseptic surgery, drainage, packing, douches (!!).

    Also for tuberculosis and certain cancers. It doesn't say what cancers.

    This is scary!!

    I knew a girl who worked in a mortuary and would use straight formaldehyde to treat her poison ivy. Worked like a charm as it burned off the blisters...but hurt like hedoubletoothpicks. I think I'd rather have the poison ivy! LOL

    I don't know how much of this is true or how much is current. But it is scary!

    God Bless.

    Woofmom, when I'm looking for info about any med I haven't used before I run search: Ingredients whatever substance and I use webmd.com, medicinenet.com, and a couple other sites I can't recall the names of right now.

    So far, I haven't found one substance the ingredients for which weren't there...
    Just a thought.

    I can not answer your question, but I do know that it is in most fingernail polishes -- which is why I can't wear them. When I wear fingernail polish, my fingernails will start to peel off in layers and my fingers then end up in awful shape!
