I have to buy this for my chronic body folliculitis so I thought I might try some on my face every other day. I heard it's better than BP at killing acne bacteria. Any opinions?

Been looking into doing the same. Where are you going to get yours?

Well I live in Canada and it's been discontinued out here. The pharmacist told me it's only available in the generic form called Chlorohexidine Gluconate (which is it's active ingredient). I'm buying it at my local pharmacy. He said it's about $7-11. :)

Read the warnings and precautions carefully. Do NOT allow the solution to get into your eyes or nose or ears. Corneal ulcers have occurred. Deafness has occurred. Don't swallow the topical solution as it's not meant for ingestion.

The stuff I bought is called Germi-stat which has 4% Chlorhexidine Gluconate. It's not colored like Hibiclens so it's possibly less-irritating. Anyhow, I used it last night for my body (folliculitis) and it didn't burn or anything. It did dry out my arms pretty bad but nothing a little moisturizer can't handle. I used a little bit along my jawline as well too see how it felt on my facial skin and it wasn't too bad, but I did notice a little redness that quickly faded. It also did leave me feeling quite clean. Anyways, I'll try to keep you all updated as too how well it works. Does anyone else have any experience with this or Hibiclens they'd like to add ?
