I have a friend who had a boil come up on his lower private parts in june. After much pain and antibiotics it went "away"; however, he still has an open place on it, and it drains everyday. And just tonight he has a spot about an inch up from where the boil was, where it looks like another one is trying to start. I was just wanting to know if it would be safe to use this soap on an open sore. Any help would be appreciated. Thx goldilocks

According to the labeling, deep non-superficial wounds should not be routinely treated with any product containing chlorhexidine gluconate, the active ingredient in hibiclens. It also contains isopropyl alcohol as a non-active ingredient, which should never be applied to deep wounds. Instead, betadine (povidone iodine) would be the best option for this, as it is typically what is used in the medical setting to disinfect deep wounds.
