Yes. Iodine in any form or peroxide acrually damage the healthy skin cells as they are migrating in from the edges. We banned their use years ago when I was on the skin care team at a nursing facility. All that should be used is saline for cleansing and then various different modalities are available depending on the needs of the wound.
