I see that your worried about phenyl consumption..

If it is small quantity and accidental, you need not worry..

But do not induce vomiting on your own, as it is not good.. Phenyl is corrosive, if you repeatedly induce vomiting, it will cause damage your food pipe.. You need to visit a doctor if you experience any difficulty or pain while swallowing, unable to swallow, if any giddiness, sweating, breathing difficulty or persistent abdominal pain as it may require an Endoscopy to visualise the inside part of the food pipe and the stomach..

Investigations to be done:


Probable diagnosis:

Accidental Phenyl Consumption

Treatment plan:

T. Rabeprazole 20mg twice daily half an before food for 1month
Syp. Sucralfate + oxetacaine 10ml 1hour before food thrice daily for 1month

Preventive measures:

Avoid hot and spicy foods
Take only cold liquid or semisolids for 2 to3 days

Regarding follow up:

Review back with investigations
