Zinc sulphocarbolate is, like carbolic acid, an antiseptic, and may be used externally for that purpose. It is used as an astringent for indolent or foul ulcers, and in subacute inflammations of mucous membrane, in solutions which are somewhat stronger than those of zinc sulphate. It is not given internally.
