My 89 year old father had bedsores that he had contracted while at hospital. They were really deep wounds, about 1 cm deep. My sister treated the wounds with hydrogen-peroxide. Unlike many elderly people, my father made a full recovery. I believe what I see, not what I am told of the dangers oh HP. However qualified the person might be.

I don't believe in changing guidelines. Thank God old remedies that have been proved to be successful are still in use. Family history tells me HP is a potent tool in healthcare. I don't trust any industry driven decisions.

I was told by a doctor md to spray hydrogen peroxide after I cleaned an incision I had. Have had a few surgeries in my life but after learning about hydro. per., I use it any time I have a cut or surgery, makes healing a breeze!

As a wind instrument musician, I had frequent damge to the lips and mouth resulting in sores etc.. It is a common problem. Rinsing mouthpieces, reeds etc in H2O2 completely eliminated the problem for me and I have had zero occurences for years.

In the tropics minor wounds when working or hiking, for example have a tendency to persist and not heal. H2O2 solved this problem for me and my hands and legs are free from wound sites. From my experience I cannot confirm these warnings.

Hi Carrie, I assume that you are not referring to an acute wound but are referring to a chronic wound or a sutured wound. As you know there is a difference between an acute wound and a chronic wound, whilst this may be the case with chronic wounds due to the fact that 3% H2O2 (whilst good in the initial treatment) does not kill the serious bacterial infection. It is also not advisable on sutured wounds due to its ability to dissolve or weaken some sutures. On acute wounds I have had great success. Have a look at these results.

I saw an article last year about a silver dressing where nano silver particles were in the dressing that would be put on the wound, have you seen this used

I noticed a cautionary message in the section on H2O2 which reported it is no longer safe as a cleansing protocol for wounds. When I worked on a geriatric ward many years ago we routinely used it for open bedsores and ulcers. After daily syringing with 3% HP to thoroughly clear necrotic material wounds were packed with gauze soaked in cod liver oil. (Matron's own remedy! ) In patients where health was not too severely compromised, within a few weeks this resulted healthy new pink tissue even in very deep cavities brought on by pressure sores. And the lady whose ulcerated leg had become gangrenous was delighted when the regeneration saved her from an amputation. The oil is rather smelly, of course, but how bad if it works?

Bon sante. Nickie

Some years ago I lived in the Torres Strait Islands where the air is very salty and filled with microorganisms. Getting a nick or cut, particularly a coral cut, can lead to severe tropical ulcers on the skin. These ulcers can grow to the size of a dinner plate if left untreated. I used 3% hydrogen peroxide on some small ulcers on my leg and they cleared up in no time.

I used H2O2 on a foot wound. After three days it was ok. Before using H2O2 i have visisted 10 doctors to treat my wound, but they failed to heal that. Then i used H2O2 on that wound and it was cured. Wound was on my Foot Finger. It was like a winter disease (cold disease). Thanks.
