OK to keep using it: Disposable razors are designed and intended to be used repeatedly until they become too dull, and probably almost all men do it that way, without cleaning or disinfecting them.

Drinking alcohol (any) would have far more of an affect. ...Read more

Does isopropyl alcohol heal your ear?

Simple Care: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions.

Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
