Why does hydrogen peroxide help treat cuts?
I got some and I got a cut but I don't know why I would use it

Hydrogen peroxide is a disinfectant, and an antiseptic. Use 3 or 4 times a day.

Hyrogen peroxides contains oxygen in it, which is poisonous to some bacteria. It can kill bacteria in a cut, to risk infection. However, using peroxide daily will actually slow down the healing process. It is best when used minimally.

So you're putting it on to kill any bacteria that can cause an infection.

Use it ONLY to clean the cut initially. After the first time, it's best to just soap & water. Peroxide kills organic tissue, including the new tissue trying to form to heal your cut. Multiple applications will take your cut a LOT longer to heal, plus almost definately leave a scar. We have a huge speach we give to people in the ER after they get stitches or staples, so this is basically long-story, short.

it helps get the dirt out of the cut and since it contains oxygen it should help the healing process
