Vital information. Thank you, Twana.
It's not Lidocaine®, nor will it provide any anesthesia or, even, analgesia. It is, however, a very good irrigant for infected wounds; it stops infection but doesn't kill healthy cells like iodine and phenol.
And, for Heaven's sake, don't inject it!
So.....I'm confused. What is the Dakins Solution used for? "And for heaven's sake don't inject" what?
Dakin's solution is an antiseptic wound irrigant (cleaning solution). It is used to clean wounds which are infected or likely to become so. Dakin's solution is not injectable.
Twana, I did that's why I needed to ask the question. Got it figured out now. Apparently my mind won't handle two topics at one time! Getting old and it's startin' to show!
