Does H peroxide slow the healing process? I have a deep dog bite; dr said to use HP each time I change the wet-to-dry bandage, but I have "heard" H. peroxide slows healing.

Hi JoyRy!

I wish I had an answer for you, but I can't find anything.

It has been a while, so I hope your dog bite is healing . If you are seeing any signs of infection, please give your doctor a call.

Take care,
Olivia
