Skin wound and general skin cleansing: Wounds which involve more than the superficial layers of the skin should not be routinely treated with Hibiclens. Hibiclens should not be used for repeated general skin cleansing of large body areas except in those patients whose underlying condition makes it necessary to reduce the bacterial population of the skin. To use, thoroughly rinse the area to be cleansed with water. Apply the minimum amount of Hibiclens necessary to cover the skin or wound area and wash gently. Rinse again thoroughly. Surgical hand scrub
Wet hands and forearms with water. Scrub for 3 minutes with about 5ml of Hibiclens and a wet brush, paying particular attention to the nails, cuticles and interdigital spaces. A separate nail cleaner may be used. Rinse thoroughly. Wash for an additional 3 minutes with 5ml of Hibiclens and rinse under running water. Dry thoroughly. Personnel hand wash
Wet hands with water. Dispense about 5ml of Hibiclens into cupped hands and wash in a vigorous manner for 15 seconds. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Preoperative skin preparation
: Apply Hibiclens liberally to surgical site and swab for at least 2 minutes. Dry with a sterile towel. Repeat procedure for an additional 2 minutes and dry with a sterile towel.

I don't go anywhere without it.
I had a recurring skin infection (staph), which would go away for a couple of weeks with antibiotics, but it would always return. It eventually stopped responding to one antibiotic, then another, and then we all got scared. Finally, one nurse suggested I start using Hibiclens just on that one spot in the shower for a few days to see what happened. It went away almost immediately! After a few days, I felt a little prickle, which indicated it was back, so I did the Hibiclens thing again, and it disappeared.
As it turns out, I will probably always carry staph, and at different points in my life, it will return. With this product, though, I can keep it under control and (finally!) be comfortable. I don't go anywhere without it.
