I put peroxide on a wound on my face and it began to swell. Will this go down
Wash it off, Peroxide is not something to use on a fresh wound, people think it cleans a wound but it is meant to eat away dead flesh. Use a betadine solution instead.
The peroxide reacted unpleasantly with the wound and the swelling may not go down. It is important to seek immediate medical help so that the swelling and the wound can be treated.
Yes, peroxide kills bacteria in infected areas but will go down eventually..it swells due to how sensitive your skin can be with medication....different skin types get different reactions but they dnt vary much....
