Savlon cleansing wipes with antiseptic.  These should not be used on wounds.  I cleaned a small cut with one without realising.  Is this dangerous?

Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. 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

As long as it moves in such expected postop course, you're ok. All you need to do is do nothing but keep the incision dry and clean. Why? What we do after skin edges seal will make no difference to the tissue beneath the skin. If still in doubt, see doc timely. ...Read more

I am healing from skin burns caused by antiseptic (savlon), what to do to speed up recovery?

Depends on how deep : Of course I am assuming the offending material has been well washed off. Redness, like a sunburn, can often be treated with a mild steroid. Blistering may require a burn cream. Third degree might require surgery. Best to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon in person for a true evaluation and plan. ...Read more
