Alcohol Swab

What is an alcohol swab?

Alcohol Swabs are individually wrapped pads made of cotton and saturated with 70% isopropyl alcohol, which are then sealed individually in packets to prevent them from drying out.

Use of alcohol swabs

Alcohol Swabs are used for first aid to decrease germs in case of minor cuts, burns, scrapes, etc. They are also used for skin preparation before injections, before drawing blood or small incisions. Cleaning with a swab helps prevent infections by preventing bacteria from entering the body. They can also be used to clean the skin when soap and water are not available. Alcohol swabs should never be used to reduce fever, or in the eyes or nose. They should not be used near open flames because they are highly inflammable. They should only be used once and not shared again with others. They should not be used after injecting to clean the injection site or to stop bleeding. The alcohol in the swab may dissolve the blood clot and the wiping action can interfere with the clotting mechanism.
