Unlike wound cleansers, alcohol prep pads should not be used on open cuts, scrapes and grazes. The alcohol content in prep pads is much greater than that of wound cleansers and is too high to use on broken skin. Their intended purpose is to clean the skin before inserting a needle or making a cut. By cleaning the skin before breaking it, germs on the skin’s surface are cleared away. There is then less chance of infection.
