· This product should not be brought into contact with the brain and the meninges, the eye or enter the ear canal in case of tympanic perforation. >
· In the absence of dermal resorption data, the risk of systemic effects can not be ruled out. They are all the more to be feared that the antiseptic is used on a large surface, under occlusive dressing, on damaged skin, in particular burnt, mucous membrane, skin of premature or infant (due to the ratio Surface / weight and occlusal effect of the layers at the level of the seat).

· As soon as an antiseptic preparation is opened, microbial contamination is possible.

Given the possible interference, the simultaneous or successive use of antiseptics or soap is to be avoided except with the other cationic compounds.
Chlorhexidine and benzalkonium chloride must not be combined with soaps and anionic compounds.
