I have self injured for over 2 years and I use isopropyl alcohol to both sterilize the cuts and increase the pain. I use an alcohol swab and rub the cuts vigorously to increase the pain further. I don't encourage this behavior, but I understand it.

Hey there, why do you feel the need to cut and make the pain worse? I am only asking because i am in the same spot. The main ingredient in perfume is isopropanol, more commonly known as rubbing alcohol. That's why it hurts worse when you add perfume to your cuts. Do yourself a favor and switch to rubbing alcohol with a content over 90%. That way you aren't introducing anything into your cuts which could cause infections. Be safe when you cut, it is better to be crazy than stupid ya?

Feel free to message me if you ever need to talk to someone that understands and is in the same spot.
