Many years ago I worked part time in a private hospital as a domestic assistant and that is where I was first introduced to Hibiscrub. Years later, I worked in a Veterinary Practice and here again, this product was used. It is routinely used in hospitals both pre and post operatively.

Hibiscrub is an antiseptic disinfectant for the skin. It has a lovely clean fresh smell and is very gentle on the skin. There are warnings on the pull back label, affixed to the container, which you must read, in case you are likely to have an allergy to any of the ingredients in it. If you are going into hospital for surgery, it is a very good idea to use Hibiscrub for bathing a few times before you are due to go. That way, if you have MRSA without realising it, you should not have any problems when you get your pre-op checks which include MRSA tests to prevent infection on the wards.

I often use it for bathing to make sure any germs that may have been picked up are dealt with. I suffer badly with insect bites and find that washing with Hibiscrub helps calm the skin down.

It can be used on your dog too for any abrasions or parts that they are fidgeting/licking at (eg paws, legs etc) Vets often prescribe it's use for skin problems, but please be guided by your vet in the first instance. It is a good standby for emergencies, but remember not to let it get in eyes, ears, nose, mouth and genital area. It is best to use diluted, try a mild strength to start with, make sure there is no adverse reaction and then if all ok, you can up the strength if you want to.

It can also be used in hot water for washing down hard surfaces for disinfection purposes. I suppose it is a bit expensive for this use, but I feel is worth the cost because it works. At the hospital, we used it this way to wash the beds and bedside tables down after a patient had been discharged.

My son suffers horrendously from smelly, sweaty feet. They absolutely stink! It doesn't matter if they are washed 100 times a day in acid! (well, not that extreme lol) but you get the point. Of course, this meant even his footwear would stink.

As he has just started secondary school we were worried he might have some grief from his peers because of his smelly feet. So we searched and hunted online and finally read an article from a Chiropodist describing this problem and a solution to it.

I can honestly say this is the answer (at least in our case). He washes his feet each day with this stuff, killing the bad bacteria that is causing the awful smell. Then after that we spray a normal antiperspirant (like Sure) all over his feet. This worked great, no more smelly feet or footwear!

I was also told by my Pharmacist that this can be prescribed by a GP, so could be available for free on prescription for those who need it and receive free prescriptions.

I have suffered from acne due to hormonal disorder I have had since I was a teenager. I was prescribed contraceptive pills, which worked for a while, but now I am trying to sort my problem with a proper diet. Despite all the improvements in my diet, there was no improvement with my acne problem. I didn't mind acne itself but cystic acne are really painful, and I had had enough of it. I got curious as to what triggered acne and did a little research in the internet and found out the type of acne I had has to do with a type of bacteria, and using antibacterial soaps may work. This is how I ended up here. It started working from day one. I must add that I have been extra careful with hygiene since I found out the connection with bacteria and acne, so this may have contributed positively as well.

I am only worrying that I am not actually prescribed this product, and perhaps I shouldn't use this product in the long term, or perhaps I should dilute it. Am I supposed to use only for my hands, or face, or is it OK to use it for body (since I have acne on my back and chest as well)?

I reckon following basic hygiene rules strictly would improve my problem anyways, because I didn't have much acne when I had gone home for Christmas despite having a relatively bad diet there (I ate a lot (a lot!) of pudding) as my mum had kept the place very clean at all times.

I just wish I had found out this many years ago when I was younger. Despite my positive feedback, I really doubt it is safe to use this product in the long term. We have a lot of good bacteria that work for us, and I wonder if this product kills the good bacteria along with the harmful ones. Nevertheless, it is great to have a break from acne for a while.
