A few comments of this subject of Hydrogen peroxide,

I don't have any experience at treating aquatic diseases with it, but I can
tell you that since an old topical medicine called "Methiolate" was taken off
the market due to it's mercury content, that it's the only cure for minor
scratches/cuts that I incur!

If the wound has closed and becomes reddened (meaning there is some infection
present) then open the site and liberally apply some fresh Hydrogen Peroxide
and after the foaming action has stopped, then "air-dry" the previously
infected area. If additional exposure to moisture or contaminents is expected,
then cover the area with protective bandages such as a "Band-Aid" and perhaps
a dab of "Neosporin".

Works for me!
