A: Hello. The FDA doesn’t require sealing on Hibiclens, unless sold at retail. Because the same bottles are used at retail and in healthcare facilities, we place the bottles in tamper-evident sealed cartons for retail stores. We apologize for the leaking you experienced. If you would like to be contacted by our product complaint team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A: We advise to keep Hibiclens away from genital areas due to potential sensitivity and irritation. Doctors occasionally recommend using Hibiclens in these areas, but that would be under guidance from the physician. If you have specific concerns, please consult with a healthcare provider.
A: Hibiclens has been proven to kill a wide range of germs, bacteria and fungi that live on the skin, but we do not have testing or data specifically on jock itch. Please consult a healthcare provider for any medical concerns or conditions.
A: Hibiclens’ active ingredient (chlorhexidine) works by gently binding with the skin to eliminate germs that live on skin. Because there is no evidence that chlorhexidine has efficacy on surfaces beyond skin, we can not recommend it to clean toys or other hard surfaces.
A: Based on our experience, if you will be bathing once per day for the day prior to and day of surgery, there is a sufficient amount of Hibiclens in an 8oz bottle. If you have additional questions or concerns, please reach out to your health care provider. Best of luck with your upcoming surgery.
A: Hibiclens can be used to clean piercings, as long as the area is a superficial wound only. If any signs of infection occur (including but not limited to swelling, redness, irritation, drainage…), please consult a health care provider immediately. Please also take caution when applying Hibiclens near and avoid direct use in sensitive areas such as the mouth, eyes, ears, nose and genitals.
A: Hibiclens 8 oz has a tamper-evident glue flap seal indicated on the top flap of the outer carton, per FDA requirements. The bottom is also glued. A seal on the inner bottle lid is not required by the FDA for this class of drug.
A: Hibiclens is not FSA eligible
