Vaginal Cleansing research information found regarding using chlorhexidine wash (Hibiclens) in lieu of antibiotics

GBS Colonization and Infection. GBS is the major cause of early- and late-onset neonatal sepsis in full-term infants in developed countries. Intrapartum chemoprophylaxis and multivalent conjugate vaccines reduce neonatal colonization and the risk of early-onset sepsis. Costs, shifting serotypes, and lack of skilled personnel, however, have impeded widespread implementation of these strategies, particularly in low-resource settings.

NO it is 70 percent alcohol... Would you want to use rubbing alcohol on those sensitive areas? It causes severe burns to the Muscoal skin areas! It has warnings on the label to DO NOT USE on the genital area!!! DO NOT use on muscual tissues! Yes some places use it but it causes severe tissue damage! I had blisters and peeling skin that was bleeding from being stripped of the skin as well as an extreme amount of inflammation that is NOT an allergic reaction! It would be nice if the medical industry actually had respect for womens medical needs and didnt treat them with such extreme disrespect!
