Skin became dark after applying Dettol
There was a wooden cut and I cleaned with dettol and used undiluted Dettol on cotton and plastered the cotton on the wound for 10 hours. Now I see there a black patch around the wound. Does the dark patch fade itself off ? Should I be worried for any side effects for it?
