Health care antiseptics are chemicals used primarily by health care professionals in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics and outpatient settings for cleaning the skin and wounds. They are ideal for killing or preventing the growth of microorganisms on the skin.
Antiseptics are mostly used by medical professionals before carrying out medical procedures like performing surgery or drawing blood. They are also used for cleaning and treating minor cuts. Some also prefer them over soap for cleaning before and after a medical procedure.
There are different types of antiseptics including alcohol-based, quaternary ammonium compound, antibacterial dye, peroxide and permanganate and halogenated phenol derivative.
The use of medical antiseptics has particularly grown in recent times following the spread of the COVID-19. Most healthcare professionals and patients alike must now keep top hygienic levels to be safe from infection.
