Take Special Care With Hydrogen Peroxide Contact Lens Solution

Posted 26 Aug 2016 by Drugs.com

FRIDAY, Aug. 26, 2016 – If you use a contact lens solution with hydrogen peroxide, you need to follow certain steps for safe use, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says. Before choosing a contact lens solution, talk to your eye care provider about what is the best cleaning and disinfecting method for your contact lenses. Never change your contact lens care system without consulting your provider. Prior to using a new solution, read all the instructions on the box and bottle and follow them carefully. If you have questions, contact your eye care provider. Never share solution that contains hydrogen peroxide. Others might confuse your solution with multi-purpose solution and not follow the instructions, which could lead to eye damage. Hydrogen peroxide solutions come in a red bottle to help avoid confusion. Hydrogen peroxide solutions don't have preservatives in them. They can be a ... Read more

Retail Prices of Dermatology Drugs Skyrocket

Posted 25 Nov 2015 by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 25, 2015 – Patients using prescription creams, gels, sprays and pills for skin conditions may shell out substantially more at the pharmacy than they did just six years ago, a new study suggests. Between 2009 and 2015, retail prices of brand-name dermatologic drugs rose 401 percent, on average, study authors reported Nov. 25 in JAMA Dermatology. Even generics have succumbed to price inflation, up 279 percent between 2011 and 2014, based on the drugs surveyed. Price increases for skin treatments far outpaced the general inflation rate of 11 percent during the six-year study period, the researchers said. "Cancer drugs were the worst in terms of the numbers" – up 1,240 percent or nearly $11,000 over the six-year study period – primarily because of two medicines, said Dr. Steven Rosenberg, voluntary professor of dermatology at the University of Miami Miller School of ...

Health Tip: Clean a Wound Carefully

Posted 25 Jan 2012 by Drugs.com

-- When you get a cut, scrape or minor puncture wound, careful cleaning can help prevent an infection. The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions for cleaning a minor wound: Run cool water over the wound, either by pouring from a cup or holding the area under running water. Using a soft washcloth and soap, gently clean the skin. Avoid applying soap directly in the wound. Clean a pair of tweezers with isopropyl alcohol, then use the tweezers to remove any dirt or debris in and around the wound. Avoid using strong cleansing solutions such as hydrogen peroxide or iodine. Use plain water unless otherwise directed by a doctor. Read more

FDA Medwatch Alert: High-Strength Hydrogen Peroxide

Posted 27 Jul 2006 by Drugs.com

[Posted 07/27/2006] FDA warned consumers not to purchase or to use high-strength hydrogen peroxide products, including a product marketed as "35 Percent Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide," for medicinal purposes because they can cause serious harm or death when ingested. FDA recommends that consumers who are currently using high-strength hydrogen peroxide stop immediately and consult their health care provider. FDA has never approved high-strength hydrogen peroxide to be taken internally and considers hydrogen peroxide at 35 percent strength dangerous, even if handled according to the manufacturer's directions. High-strength hydrogen peroxide – more than 10 times stronger than the solution used in over-the-counter drugs to disinfect minor cuts – is highly corrosive. Ingesting hydrogen peroxide can cause gastrointestinal irritation or ulceration. Intravenous (IV) administration of hydrogen ... Read more

Key to Wound-Healing May Be Explained in Fish Tail

Posted 3 Jun 2009 by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, June 3 – Hydrogen peroxide – commonly used to prevent infection in cuts and scrapes – also may rally healing cells to wounded tissue, new research has found. U.S. researchers have discovered that when the tail fins of zebra fish are injured, a spurt of hydrogen peroxide is released from the wound and into the surrounding tissue. In response to the summons from the hydrogen peroxide, white blood cells travel to the wound and start healing it, they say. "We've known for quite some time that when the body is wounded, white blood cells show up, and it's really a spectacular piece of biology because these cells detect the wound at some distance," Timothy Mitchison, a professor of systems biology at Harvard Medical School, said in a news release. "But we haven't known what they're responding to. We do know something about what summons white blood cells to areas that are ... Read more
