Disinfectant for Minor Cuts and Scrapes

Treat any minor cut or scrape with a gentle disinfectant. These substances both kill microbes to prevent infection. There are many disinfectants available for treating minor scrapes and cuts.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Before you apply the disinfectant, clean the wound with mild anti-bacterial soap. Carefully remove all the debris rooted in the skin. Hydrogen peroxide is the most commonly used disinfectant for scrapes and cuts. You can apply it around the open wound.

Essential Oils

You can use natural, antibacterial oils as disinfectants to help in quick healing. Essential oils are extracted from plants, trees, fruits and herbs for therapeutic purposes. Apply bergamot oil to cuts and scrapes to speed the healing process.

Antibiotic Ointments

Neosporin and Bacitracin are the two antibiotic ointments used for wound care as they prevent wounds from getting septic and help them heal quickly.
