Common (less than 1 of 10, but more than 1 of 100 treated persons) are irritative skin reactions and contact dermatitis. Brief redding of the skin is usually meaningless and disappears on its own.

Safety instructions: Easily flammable; do not spray into flames, flash point (according to DIN 51755): 20 degrees Celsius. Always regard safety instructions and manual. Let product dry before handling electric devices. Take care with alcohol-sensitive surfaces. Let dry at least one minute, prior to enzymatic glucode test. Chemical burns of the skin after topical application with chlorhexidinegluconat have been observed with newborn and infants. Premature babies seam to be especially sensitive, due to the immaturity of the skin safety barrier. Skinsept® F should be applied to infants or babies only if there is no other therapeutical alternative and the expected benefit outweighs the risk. We advise to remove excess fluid.
