If you read my other blog, you may know that my son recently had impetigo which unfortunately ended up turning into a full blown staph infection. Thankfully it is all cleared up.
One of the things his doctor suggested we do to help speed along his recovery is use Hibiclense. It is an antiseptic, antimicrobial soap. We used to every day for 5 days and before we were even on the 5th day his staph was all but cleared up. Granted he was also on antibiotics, but I think it helped quiet a bit.
On top of that, we had a ringworm out break at our school, and while I was there last week, I passed on the word about Hibiclense, and one of the guys who had not been able to get his ring worm to clear up for over two weeks used it, and his ringworm was gone in three days.
According to the website it kills MRSA, Ringworm, Athletes Foot, Herpes, bacteria and other viruses. It also says it kills germs on contact and bonds to the skin and continues to kill microorganisms for six hours.
I am going to stash a bottle in my gym bag to use after class.
It is pretty inexpensive considering the head ache it could save me. It is about 7 bucks for a 4 oz bottle.
Here is their website.
Oh, and I almost forgot. It will dry the crap out of your skin, so make sure to moisturize after you use it. =)
