“Hydrogen peroxide should be used to debride a cut or scratch as soon as the injury occurs, and never again. Alcohol can be used to clean the wound the days following injury.
Hydrogen peroxide eats away cells and tissue to debride the injury. If used continuously it slows down healing time due to the damage it does to the new tissue being made to heal the wound.”
