I do have Savlon cream here,it is an antispetic liquid I am looking for. so I will go to the Pharmacy to buy the Biseptine.

I use Biseptine for cuts and grazes. It comes in a non aerosol 100ml spray bottle and is a clear/white liquid. It costs a little under 4 euros a bottle and lasts ages.

The coloured liquid mentioned above is called Betadine but I don't like it as it stains the skin.

Cetavlon cream from pharmacies is virtually the same as Savlon. It's what I use on kids' cuts and grazes.

Yes I agree Floridan. It is just that I would prefer a recommendation from someone. There are two that I am aware of, cannot remember the name, but they colour the area of skin yellow or red. A product like Dettol or Savlon does not.

How about asking at the pharmacy? They are everywhere....

Thank you, I have just looked at the website you kindly gave. The products seem mainly for the home, and the hands. I am thinking more of cuts or grazes, wherever they could be on the body. Possibly a child's grazed knee for example.I am thinking more of an antiseptic lotion from a Pharmacy

Thank you, I had already thought of that. As I live here permanently, I would rather find something I can buy at the local pharmacy.
