Comment:
Got my molar pulled and after 3 days my hard palate near the extraction site got wounded, perhaps the abscese was the cause. After 8 days, the site is healing well, but the wound was still there and was painful. I decided to use chlorhexidine twice a day (morning and night). After 2 days, the wound no longer that painful, and the redness was decreasing. So happy with this product, very effective. ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Chlorhexidine gluconate was used to disinfect (I guess) my skin (vulva and rectum) prior to an outpatient procedure. Following the procedure I experienced severe burning and redness where the drug had been applied. The doctor attributed the reaction to the drug rather than anything related to the medical procedure. Other than the sensitivity I experienced, the drug was "effective."
