ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE: HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

Used most commonly in a dilute topical solution against acne, this molecule containing two oxygen atoms is also found in intravenous techniques for increasing oxygen levels in the blood.

The topical applications are safe provided that the solution is dilute enough, although they will only treat the symptoms and not any underlying cause of skin conditions; the intravenous solution can only be administered by doctors trained in the subject and is, therefore, of potential use.
