Verified by Toppr

Antiseptics:
These drugs are applied to living tissues to kill the bacteria and to stop their growth in wound, thus preventing its infection. Antiseptics do not heal the wound but prevent the wound from getting infected. Dettol ( a mixture of terpeniol and chloroxylenol) is an antiseptic. Other antiseptics are tincture iodine, bithional, iodoform, boric acid, phenol (dilute solution) etc.
