What is the best way to clean a cut on the skin?  i've been told hydrogen peroxide slows cell growth & not to use. What else aside from soap and water

Avoid peroxide: Peroxide not only kills the bad things (bacteria, etc) but also the fibroblasts - cells that promote healing and the production of new tissue. Gentle washing with a mild soap and water is usually adequate, perhaps followed by apply Bacitracin or neosporin ointment. Allowing wound to dry out usually results in prolonged healing and a higher risk of scars.

How long should hydrogen peroxide be left in my ear when cleaning?

Little if any: Hydrogen peroxide breaks down to water as it bubbles out the oxygen. This water can create a puddle effect that causes the skin to swell. Over time the skin in the canal cracks and exposes body serum, leading to infection by canal germs (swimmers ear). If you use peroxide, get it all out after use.

What to do if I'm cleaning the infected foot nail with hydrogen peroxide. Am doing right?

H2O2: Is best used initially. It is a potent antibiotic and will get where ointments and creams won't. It is, however, caustic to new granulation tissue and will slow healing if used repeatedly. Use a simple antibiotic ointment like Neosporin. Getting the nail out is what really needs to be done.

Should I clean my ear with carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide?

Should I clean my ear with carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide?

Ear Wax: Products like Murine, Auro & Debrox contain Carbamide Peroxide. They are made to clean ears. Low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide are sometimes used to loosen wax before it's removal. I personally wouldn't recommend that you start pouring chemicals into your ears. The higher the concentration the more chance there is for tissue damage. If you are having ear problems consider seeing an ENT Dr.

Can I use hydrogen peroxide to keep my baby's umbilical cord area clean?

Yes, but: I find it is only a benefit if used briefly to blot the area followed by drying. I prefer alcohol swabs several times a day. When the peroxide is left in place it converts to water and makes the area soggy and stinky.

I used hydrogen peroxide on my skin to clean a minor scrape and it bleached my skin (which is usually fair to begin with) is this normal?

I used hydrogen peroxide on my skin to clean a minor scrape and it bleached my skin (which is usually fair to begin with) is this normal?

Can be both ways: After any skin cut or scrape, the healing process involves some inflammation, so the result can be either a lighter spot or a darker spot (or, if lucky, a spot of the original color). Over time, the spot should blend into the normal color again.
