Hydrogen Peroxide Solution 6%
Care 6% Hydrogen Peroxide is a disinfectant which can be used to clean minor wounds, or as a mouthwash or gargle. It releases oxygen when in contact with your body’s tissues, killing any bacteria in the area and acting as a deodorant at the same time.
There are two ways that you can use 6% Hydrogen Peroxide, either as a skin disinfectant or as a mouthwash or gargle:
- To use as a skin disinfectant, first dilute a small amount of hydrogen peroxide in an equal amount of water. Soak some cotton wool in this solution and use to clean or dress the wound as needed
- To use as a mouthwash or gargle, first dilute a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with 5 times the amount of water, e.g. 5ml hydrogen peroxide in 25ml of water. Use this solution to gargle or rinse the mouth for 2 – 3 minutes
Hydrogen peroxide 6% w/v, phosphoric acid (E338), phenacetin, purified water
Like all medications, 6% Hydrogen Peroxide can have side effects, although not everyone will experience them. These side effects include:
- Irritating burns on the skin and other soft tissues. This can produce a white patch of dead tissue. The pain from this burn will disappear after about an hour.
- Temporary swelling of the tongue when used continuously as a mouthwash
If you notice these or any other side effects while using this product, stop use and speak to your doctor.
