Do gentian violet react with Hydrogen Peroxide? I first put some gentian violet on my wound and I wanna wash it by hydrogen peroxide. Is that ok?

In brief: No

Neither of these should be applied to a wound.
Details matter. What kind of wound? Where? How deep? Caused by what? Clean or contaminated? Most wounds do best by washing with water, then keeping lubricated.
