i burnt my arm wednesday its infected now can i put peroxide on it?

no do not put peroxide on a burn, go and see your GP as you will probably need antibiotics to treat the infection.clean with salt water and cover with a dry dressing do not use anything that will stick to the burn.

You should always seek professional medical attention for burns that have become infected.

You're better off putting (white) burn cream on it. I found that Bacitracin (either name brand or store brand, they both have the same ingredients) works very well.

Peroxide is a topical agent used to sterilize. Sure, go ahead. I'd rather use something like a antibiotic cream, like neosporin on burns. It sticks around longer. Bandage the area to keep it clean. Keep an eye on the infection. If it get worse, don't hesitate to have a pro look at it.

yuck -skip the peroxide as it's making the infection worse. go to an urgent care. keep the wound clean and dry -no creams!

Peroxide will actually slow the healing process down by destroying tissue. I would advise you keep it clean, place a dry sterile dressing on it, and see your doctor to get the infection treated right away. Good Luck!
