Chlorhexadine Warning

The FDA has announced a warning that rare but serious allergic reactions have been reported with widely used skin antiseptic products containing chlorhexidine gluconate.  Although rare, the number of reports of serious allergic reactions to these products has increased over the last several years.  The FDA has asked manufacturers to add a new warning label.  For full details, including FDA recommendations for continuing use, see http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm530975.htm .
