Hibiscrub contains chlorhexidine. Chlorhexidine is known to induce hypersensitivity, including generalised allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock. The prevalence of chlorhexidine hypersensitivity is not known, but available literature suggests this is likely to be very rare. Hibiscrub should not be administered to anyone with a potential history of an allergic reaction to a chlorhexidine-containing compound.
For external use only. Keep out of the eyes and avoid contact with the brain, meninges and middle ear. In patients with head or spinal injuries or perforated ear drum, the benefit of use in pre-operative preparation should be evaluated against the risk of contact. If chlorhexidine solutions come into contact with the eyes, wash out promptly and thoroughly with water. Do not inject or use in body cavities.
