Can Wound Cleaning Fluid Be Used To Wash Hands?
Doctor, if for example an antiseptic wound is made as a substitute for a handsanitizer what should I do?
Hi Xiomi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Antiseptics are chemical compounds that are able to slow down and inhibit bacterial growth in living tissue. Hand sanitizer is an antiseptic group that works to kill microorganisms in the hands (bacteria, viruses). While wound antiseptics are used to prevent and overcome infection in the wound. Because the composition of compositions in each type of antiseptic is different, adjusted according to its function, the wound antiseptic is considered inappropriate to replace the hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizers with alcohol content> 60% are effective for killing microorganisms both bacteria and viruses, so hand sanitizers without alcohol content or with an alcohol content of less than 60% are not effective in killing microorganisms.
That's all, hope it helps.
