MouthfulOfGrass I wasn't either. Thanks to Wikipedia for the info.

Now I have an explanation for my kids that I HAVE to use alcohol, peroxide makes scars....(good thing their mother loves them, she buys Bactine).

kg4kpg It still burned like hell!

Lot of good info. I wasn't aware Hydrogen Peroxide caused wounds to scar.

The best use for merthiolate was to put on the thumb of a kid who had a tendancy to suck their thumb. It was like sticking nasty tasting tobasco in your mouth.

MouthfulOfGrass Merthiolate is a mercury-containing substance that was once widely used as germ-killer and a preservative in many different products, including vaccines.

Merbromin (marketed as Mercurochrome, Merbromine, Sodium mercurescein, Asceptichrome, Supercrome and Cinfacromin) is a topical antiseptic used for minor cuts and scrapes. It is no longer sold in the USA because of its mercury content. Merbromin is an organomercuric disodium salt compound and a fluorescein.


An example of Mercurochrome
[edit] Uses
Merbromin's best-known use is as a topical antiseptic, however it, along with Merthiolate, has been ruled ineffective by the FDA, and is no longer approved. When applied on a wound, the dark red colour stains the skin, making the detection of any erythema or inflammation, indicative of infection, more difficult. Merbromin is also used as a biological dye used to mark tissue margins, and as a metal dye in industrial dye penetrant inspection to detect metal fractures.


[edit] Mercurochrome & Tinctures
Mercurochrome is the trade name of merbromin and (usually) of merbromin tinctures made of merbromin and alcohol or water (usually 2% merbromin to 98% alcohol or water).

Iodine:
Usually used in an alcoholic solution (called tincture of iodine) or as Lugol's iodine solution as a pre and post-operative antiseptic. No longer recommended to disinfect minor wounds because it induces scar tissue formation and increases healing time. Gentle washing with mild soap and water or rinsing a scrape with sterile saline is a better practice. Novel iodine antiseptics containing povidone-iodine (an iodophor, complex of povidone, a water-soluble polymer, with triiodide anions I3-, containing about 10% of active iodine) are far better tolerated, don't affect wound healing negativelly and leave a depot of active iodine, creating the so-called "remanent," or persistent, effect. The great advantage of iodine antiseptics is the widest scope of antimicrobial activity, killing all principial pathogenes and given enough time even spores, which are considered to be the most difficult form of microorganisms to be inactivated by disinfectants and antiseptics.

Hydrogen Peroxide:
Used as a 6% (20Vols) solution to clean and deodorize wounds and ulcers. More common 1% or 2% solutions of hydrogen peroxide have been used in household first aid for scrapes, etc. However, even this less potent form is no longer recommended for typical wound care as the strong oxidization causes scar formation and increases healing time. Gentle washing with mild soap and water or rinsing a scrape with sterile saline is a better practice.

Alcohol:
Bourbon, makes you feel better. Helps kids sleep after a "boo-boo"

MouthfulOfGrass Merthiolate, and mercurochrome are different, as is iodine.

My dad liked good ol' rubbing alcohol in the wound. If we were lucky, we could whine enough and mom would use hydrogen peroxide instead. You got to watch the little bubbles fizz, while it stung.

I always remember this as METHYOLATE, or better remembered as liquid fire.

We raised a calf every year to butcher.
Hell no, I do it myself. Makes the arms strong. I've been begging Odhinn to let me get some goats and chickens so I can make cheese and have fresh eggs. I grew up in the country and really miss that lifestyle. My dad and uncle used to butcher 2 hogs every year. I hate living in the city, you don't have much freedom there, just lots of places to spend all your money.

I insist we all eat dinner together and we practice this at least 6 of the 7 days. The way I understand it, that is the # 1 contribution to keeping families together today and keeping the kids focused on family values.

I do not think much has really changed since I was a kid. Of course there are a lot of new things to distract us in our daily lives. The violence, drugs,n divorce, etc are all still here.

I don't beat the crap out of my kids like my parents and teachers did to me. If a teacher lays a finger on one of my kids, I can assure you they would wish they never met me. That's a good evolution in my book. I still reserve the right to discipline my child in public or private and nobody bothers me. I have no reservations disciplining my children and I really do not need to either. I spend a lot of time with them and make them understand the accountability, the punsihment and the rewards of behavior.

The big difference from then to now is that child abuse laws are enforced now.... they weren't then. If I had a dollar everytime some teacher dragged me by the hair or the ear for something stupid I did, I would be semi-retired. This abuse from these "role models" did not inspire any feelings for these people. If anything, I disliked them more for it.

The other big change is day care. Day care when I was a kid was grandma or your older sister watching you. Mom stayed home to raise the kids. Today, more and more families want the big house so they need two jobs for the mortgage. They don't realize what effect this has on their kids when they are not home till 6:00 PM.

My wife stays home till my daughter is in all day kindergarden.... no day care = no issues. People blame everything on the teacher, the schoools and the care givers but where is their responsibility as parents to parent their children? If you are not going to invest the time to raise your children, then in my opinion, you do not have the right to bitch or bring children into this world and burden society to raise and later instutionalize them.

I believe it comes down to proven - traditional values.

tazmann910 They did, but they were only for football players.

Parents would not even think about spending that kind of money on that kind of stuff.

My family had steak every Sunday for lunch. My buddy's mom always cooked up fried chicken for Sunday lunch. We rotated between our houses every Sunday.

Sunday nights were greasy skillet fried hamburgers on TV trays in the den, so we could all watch Bonanza.

tet1070 Those were the good days when the parents raised their children, not the schools, the police, and the goverment. NOSTALGIA, makes you all warm inside ( as you are thinking how old you are). Like the old guys used to say ==== I remember when...........

tazmann910 I grew up around the same time. I would get beat by the other parents. Also we played in construction sites all the time, it was a great place to ride our bikes. And if you were not home by the time the street lights came on...look out..

I really get upset at how messed up society is now. I am still trying to raise my kids the way my parents did. I do not beleive in ADD, I just think a kid could use the proper persuasion every once in a while.
