Hi! Just a note, just trying to help...
Using hydrogen peroxide on a healing wound actually inhibits new cell growth, meaning that it slows healing time and increases scarring. Dilute anti-bacterial hand soap and really good rinsing is your best route. So... just something to consider.
Also, it seems I always have scratches and cuts on my hands and arms because of my job. So if I did aquarium maintenance only when I was wound free, it'd never get done!
But, like these lovely people said, there are some risks. I love how you're educating yourself, and I learned something new about the TB thing. So thanks for asking a great question!
