The Antiseptic is a medical item featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.

DescriptionEdit

Antiseptic solution to hold off infections.

BackgroundEdit

An antiseptic is a substance used to slow or halt the growth of microbes around living tissue in order to prevent infection.[1] Antiseptics differ from antibiotics in that the latter is used to kill bacteria located inside the body, while the former is applied to surface wounds. Common antiseptics range from alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, iodine, and even sodium bicarbonate.[2] Antiseptics should not be used for prolonged periods of time, or in incorrect dosages. Using too little antiseptic may entice microbes into developing a resistance to the chemicals, while using too much may cause harm to living cells in the vicinity.

Found in medical centers, first aid kits, and bathroom medicine cabinets. Always read and follow the label.
