Does 70% alcohol sanitize enough to kill the wart (on hands) virus enough to no longer spread on a dry surface?

No: The wart virus is very tough to sanitize. Disinfectants like Lysol (60% alcohol) do not contain a high enough % alcohol to sanitize the HPV virus which causes warts.

Hi I was recently diagnosed with and STD and my doctor prescribed me azithromycin. I took it yesterday but was wondering if alcohol would affect it?

Alcohol: Interacts very strongly with metronidazole (Flagyl) that is used to treat vaginal infections and/or some STD. This is not as much as a concern with azithromycin. Azithromycin and alcohol both require the liver to work harder, and taking them in combination is not recommended. Protect yourself from getting STDs in the future by consistent use of condoms. Some STDs are so easily treated. ...Read more

However, many germs do not have cold water as their natural habitat, so they eventually die if left in the cold water. Washing with cold water is cleaner than not washing at all. Sometimes, people don't have hot water, but still can live normal lives with cold water. ...Read more
