So my 6 month old now has a few scratches on his back from our dog and I just wanted to know if peroxide is bad to use on them? Probably a stupid question, but whatever. I already washed the scratches since they are a little open and I'm not too sure about putting anything on them...Opinions/Advice is welcome :]

  • peroxide can kill the skin around the wounds. Warm soap and water is best, followed by neosporin or triple anti-biotics. GL!

  • Are you going to get rid of the dog?

  • No anon, it wasn't on purpose. The dog is just a baby herself. She's actually a month younger than my DS. She was very hyper running around the house blah blah blah you get the point. She'll just be in the crate for the rest of the day/night except to go to the bathroom and eat.
