Obstetric Care Lotion - Chlorhexidine Gluconate 1% - 200g is an antiseptic and disinfectant, which is effective against a wide range of vegetative Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms, some viruses and some fungi. It is ineffective against bacterial spores at room temperature, and acid-fast bacteria are inhibited but not killed. It is more active against Gram-positive than Gram-negative bacteria and some species of Pseudomonas and Proteus are relatively less susceptible. Chlorhexidine is most active at a neutral or slightly acid pH and its activity may be reduced by blood and other organic matter.
For disinfection or lubrication during gynaecological and obstetric procedures or childbirth.
Known hypersensitivity to chlorhexidine.
For external use only.
Skin irritation and hypersensitivity reactions to chlorhexidine have beenreported. In the event that these reactions occur, discontinue use.
Apply liberally to hands prior to vaginal examination. Apply to external genitalia and perineum during childbirth.
