BACTIGRAS is indicated for a wide range of wounds where there is a risk of infection, or on already infected wounds in conjunction with systemic antibacterials. The range of wounds on which BACTIGRAS may be used include: minor burns and scalds, lacerations, abrasions and other skin loss wounds, donor and recipient graft sites and leg ulcers where the wound is no more than 10% of the body area.


  • Do not use on more than 10% of the body area.
  • Do not use in known cases of sensitivity or allergy to chlorhexidine.


  • Dermatitis, contact sensitivity or photosensitivity may rarely occur. Anaphylactic reaction to chlorhexidine has been reported, but is rare.
  • Avoid contact with eyes, the middle ear, meninges and brain.
  • BACTIGRAS is incompatible with soaps, other anionic materials, as well as potassium iodide.
  • The use of BACTIGRAS with oxidizing wound cleansing agents should be avoided.
  • BACTIGRAS is a single use only product. If used on more than one patient, cross-contamination or infection may result. Opening the dressing pack compromises the sterile barrier. Any unused dressings should be discarded.
