Active FX: Q&AAsk a Question
Washing Face with Hydrogen Peroxide and Water After Active FX?
I just realized that the slight infected smell is coming from my cheeks and I can't reach my doctor right now--perhaps not for the whole weekend.
I just want to know: is it safe to wash my face with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water?
I'm concerned about possible scarring as a result of infection, but right now, aside from the persistent redness, everything looks the way my doctor described it.
Hydrogen peroxide may damage freshly lasered skin
