    ...So a vet's advice is medical advice for humans? I mean...that's what you are promoting...

    I have cited and posted information about veterinary AND human products - with links and references.

    I have also been critical of the use of hydrogen peroxide because it lacks antiseptic/bactericidal efficacy.

    Please carefully re-read each and every post I've contributed to this thread then feel free to cite the post(s) in which I advised or promoted the use of veterinary-labeled products for humans.

    I'm not going to be critical of anymore posts as this isn't the place for it and I'm not qualified to make recommendations.

    My point was you aren't exactly the right person either. The fact you are a veterinarian ( I am assuming) doesn't make you anymore capable of offering medical advice than Doc...who you called out
    Sounds like medical advice to me.
    . I've said my piece, my experience in debating with you is hopeless due to the fact you can cheery pick Google better than me, so I'll bow out of this thread.

    I will leave you with one tip though. You obviously have much to offer but you certainly need to work on your delivery methods. Not many people, most without your background, will even take the time to read all the links and cut and paste you post, to ensure the data is current, so maybe, just maybe, if you would be a bit humble in your advice lacing it with layman's terms it would make people less defensive. Your mileage may vary though. I'm just trying to help.

    Firstly, I've not offered any medical advice.

    Secondly, anyone is capable of offering (bad or good) medical advise, however, not everyone is qualified to offer medical advice.

    Whatever. I know not everyone is qualified (yeah...I shouldn't have used the word capable) as that was my point too. I didn't realize I had to spell it out.

    Read my last paragraph again...maybe it will sink in. We all aren't stupid and you aren't the only one that is smart.

    And this is my last post on this thread as I am cluttering up a decent informative thread.

    Hydrogen Peroxide works and works well to clear a small infection. The reason the medical community is down on it is it does slow healing, dries and contributes to scars. I have been told by wound care people that keeping a wound moist with antibiotic ointment and covered is the best and fastest way to treat a small cut. I don't care about scabs and don't want to mess with Band-Aids so I still use Hydrogen Peroxide.

    Ok so the final conclusion is everyone stay off the water. No fishing or Scalloping. I will test all the waters and let you know when it is safe to get out there again....:grin
    If it don't fit force it. If it breaks it needed replace anyways. :banghead

    Thanks, Doc. We used your system on our grandson this week and he healed up fine. I was a pretty good scrape from a fall in the boat.
