This is Health Matters, with a report on current medical thinking regarding home care for wounds and burns. “…cleaning scrapes and cuts with peroxide or alcohol and letting them dry and scab over is not recommended. Peroxide may help dislodge debris from a wound and dissolve some dried blood, but it is very irritating to the open flesh.”
Health Matters is a production of KIDE Hoopa CA. Produced and written by Cynthia Poten. Engineered by Joseph Orozco. Our readers were Kristen Marshall, David Moon and Joseph Orozco.
