I was cleaning a wound on my chest with hydrogen peroxide and then
isopropyl alcohol, and I noticed that when I had finished, the area where
the chemicals had run down my stomach appeared much lighter in color than
the surrounding flesh. The only thing that seemed reasonable was a change
in blood flow, but I am curious to know if this is correct and if so, by
what processes does it occur?
