The Use Of Rifanol To Compress Wounds?
, can Rifanol be used to clean wounds from eczema?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Rivanol or alcohol does have uses as an antiseptic substance that is often used in wound care. But to clean a dirty wound or compress a wound is actually not recommended to use alcohol or the like because it risks irritating the skin. To clean or compress a wound you should use a sterile liquid such as 0.9% NaCl. If there is no similar liquid should be enough to flow through clean water on the wound, then dried with a clean cloth, then apply with an ointment or an antibiotic cream and then covered with sterile gauze. If the wound is large enough, you should do further tests with your doctor to get adequate treatment.
ekian, hopefully can help.
