In Response To: Ingrown Toenails (Lisa)

For those of you who remember the old Outgrow for Ingrown Toenails from many years ago and got relief: Outgrow is no more.

The effective ingredient in Outgrow was tannic acid which made the liquid look brown. The competing toe nail product manufacturers with weak ingredients complained to the FDA about Outgrow's unfair competition.

As a result, (1) Outgrow was required by the FDA to change its name to Outgro, and (2) it was required to remove the tannic acid and begin using the same ineffectual ingredients of other competitors because the tannic acid made for unfair competition against other companies not using it.

This resulted in drastic drops in sales of Outgro because the name was no longer recognized by old customers, and the new product did not accomplish the same results.

Presently most pharmacies no longer carry Outgro because there is no demand for it. Only small mom-and-pop pharmacies carry it now.

Don't bother looking for it because if you find it, it no longer works.

Your best bet is to search the internet for companies selling tannic acid (liquid--not powder) and make your own Outgrow. You might want to buy a bottle of Outgrow just to have a bottle to store your tannic acid in and a droper to deliver it.
