It may not have bacteria killing properties, but the aerated reaction does help to force things out of the wound.

The way it was explained to me was that Peroxide actually does more tissue damage than saline solution in a wound. Had to do 12hour wet-to dry dressing changes on my spouse's leg after they were harvested to use in is by-pass surgery. Like a idiot, the day they took the staples out he wouldn't stay in bed, he fell an his leg was open almost to the bone.

The original Vascular Surgeon, the Wound Care RN's ALL said using the peroxide would be the worst thing to use.

Hate to say it but the Cracked article isn't wrong. Thanks 727Sky!


BTW I'm a big fan of that wound care powder they sell at the feed store for smaller injuries. If it's good enough for a horse, it'll be fine for me.

I always thought we use hydrogen peroxide on wounds only if they have dirt in them, because the fizzing action can lift the particles up and out. Then you use antiseptic.

The process of oxidation is a reduction process, turning organic compounds, i.e., life, into inorganic compounds, i.e. salts (no life).

The oxidation of microbes in the presence of oxygen will kill all life, just on the surface while the reduction process is ongoing.

Once the reaction stops, oxidation does too. Then cover the wound straight away to prevent foreign bacteria from alighting out of the air.

This site Advanced Tissue offers some good advice on wound treatment. They have a large clinical market.


I do know that it's now widely accepted that peroxide and alcohol aren't recommended as disinfectants. They harm skin tissue. Soap and water are recommended as the first line, then a clean gauze dressing. Studies have proven that keeping a wound moist and covered accelerates healing. (Sometimes remarkably quickly)

How many times do I have to remind yall that raw Honey is the best possible thing to put on a wound? It is #1 by a long shot.

It kills just about everything, increases healing, and lessens scarring.

How did yall forget???

Rare I dont think I've seen in Aust. any longer. They use betadine now. I think being iodine based its less toxic

Merbromin


Merbromin (marketed as Mercurochrome, Merbromine, Sodium mercurescein, Asceptichrome, Supercrome, Brocasept and Cinfacromin) is a topical antiseptic used for minor cuts and scrapes. Merbromin is an organomercuric disodium salt compound and a fluorescein. It is readily available in most countries but, because of its mercury content, it is no longer sold in Switzerland, Brazil, France, Germany, and the United States.[1][2][3]

Hydrogen peroxide is only meant to clean the wound initially...it was never supposed to be used for prolonged wound treatment. It is very drying to the skin and can cause irritation by actually sloughing away while cells, collagen and elastin, and keeping them from doing their job to heal the injury.

It's just like anything else though...people think it's a catchall fix for infection prevention, just like neosporin or bacitracin. Just put some in the wound, cover it with a bandage and you're good to go. Problem is, covering and forgetting is the very easiest way to create a friendly environment for opportunistic anaerobic bacteria, which are typically the worst bugs out there.

People don't know how to properly clean and dress wounds anymore. Quick fixes are awesome and convenient, but the body is designed to heal itself. Keeping a wound clean and dry, replacing bandages frequently is typically all that is needed for minor cuts and abrasions in an otherwise healthy individual. The immune system does all the rest.

In other words big pharma beast system wants you to apply $20 per ounce patented germ killer on your cuts instead of $1 per pound peroxide 3%

Whats theyre not telling you that even at 3% it dOES kill most germs etc.. it OXIDIZES em!

Then you put on some antibiotic jelly and your body go to work healing, preferably without big pharma drugging you up just for each cut/scrape.

not a doc, not med advice.

True typically Staph, or similar is due to a suppressed immune system.

Your article is wrong hydrogen peroxide been shown to kill organic compounds. It will kill bacteria in a wound however it kills off your cells as well. Pour hydrogen peroxide on your skin you will see it turn to white
Powder thats dead skin cells.
