    Can peroxide cause skin tissue damage if you use it too often?

    I have always used peroxide on cuts, and scrapes to keep them from getting infected, but I recently had someone tell me using peroxide can harm skin tissue.

    It's good for infection, however in high concentration on 'healthy' skin it CAN cause blisters, soreness, redness and allergic reactions.  I don't think you have anything to worry about if you're just using it on cuts and scrapes.
