https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peroxide

Can Hydrogen Peroxide have a Medicinal value to Human Beings for treating specific ailments?

This medical composition in the form of Drug (Tablet/capsules, Syrup & Gaseous form) & injected can also be a mixture of Hydrogen Peroxide with other Chemical compounds.

Thanks & Regards,

It's useful for disinfecting some cuts and sometimes as mouthwash but I wouldn't consider it medicine for any other reason. Who the heck is injecting or consuming it?!

Thanks.

So it is useful for external use and not for oral ?

I find it very strange you are asking this here... The uses of dilute hydrogen peroxide are casually available on google.

Intravenous application of HP is one of known examples of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternative_medicine - and we don't discuss crackpottery here.
