The hydrogen peroxide is bad for your skin. It is very damaging!! I know for a while it was recommended for acne but now studies have shown it is very bad for the skin. It generates free radical damage and can impair the skin's healing process. Paula begoun has a whole write up on why she no longer recommends it and she will lists the studies where the information is coming from. As for the fumes and your eyes, if it is irritating your eyes and making the water that is yet another reason to not use it.
