Best Answer

Isopropyl (or methyl) alcohol (or possibly ethyl alcohol) normally has the name "rubbing alcohol" applied to it. It is alcohol suitable for external use only; it's not safe for consumption. It is packaged with a bit of water, and the alcohol content varies from one manufacturer to another. It's between 70% and 95% alcohol depending who the supplier is.

Rubbing alcohol can be used as a cooling rub for patients, or as an antiseptic. Note that alcohol should not be used as a disinfectant in an open wound -- it's painful and not great with disinfecting wounds.
its alcohol that you rub on your skin and it gets you wasted.
