I heard it is best now to use 2% chlorhexidine on the navel stump. When i looked into ordering some i was a bit confused.I found Chlorhexidine Acetate chlorhexidine Gluconate chlorhexidine Diacetate What is the difference,What one do i use? Most come in gallon size,I dont need a gallon. One comes in 8 oz, Nolvasan skin & wound cleaner,it is 2% chlorhexidine Acetate.Can i use that,or should i just get betadine scrub,I know i can get that in a small bottle.Thank You for any help.}
You want to use ½% Chlorhexidine, not 2%, so dilute the Nolvasan 1:7
