Best Answer

It was a Mercury-bromine compound used as a topical disinfectant of the skin and wounds. Many of us had this red liquid painted on us when we were young for skinned knees and small cuts. It has been outlawed in the US for years, although non-mercury types are still available. Today you would use neo-sporin or similar products.
