Hydrogen peroxide is antiseptic.
An antiseptic agent of the antioxidant group. When hydrogen peroxide comes into contact with damaged skin or mucous membranes, active oxygen is released and organic substances (proteins, blood, pus) are mechanically cleansed and inactivated. Antiseptic action is not sterilizing, with its use there is only a temporary reduction in the number of microorganisms. Profuse foaming promotes thrombosis and stopping bleeding from small vessels.
