What is Octenisept colorless and when is it used?

Octenisept® colorless is a disinfectant for use on the skin and mucous membranes. It kills bacteria and fungi and is also effective against viruses.

Octenisept® colorless is used to disinfect the skin and mucous membranes in the case of minor injuries and wounds such as cuts, skin tears, abrasions or small-area light burns (1st degree burns). Octenisept® colorless is also used to disinfect the oral mucosa and before catheterization of the urethra. The application of Octenisept® colorless is painless.

What should be considered?

Large, heavily soiled and deep wounds as well as bite and puncture wounds require medical treatment (danger of tetanus). If the extent of a wound remains the same for some time or if the wound does not heal within 10 to 14 days, a doctor's visit is also necessary. The same applies if the edges of the wound are very red, the wound suddenly swells, is very painful or the injury is accompanied by fever (danger of blood poisoning).

You must not use Octenisept® colorless if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. Octenisept® colorless must not be used in the ear or on the eye. Do not use for flushing the abdominal cavity or urinary bladder.

Octenisept® colorless must not be used over a longer period of time without medical supervision. Don't ingest. Octenisept® colorless is intended for external use only.

Can Octenisept colorless be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

There is limited experience of use in pregnant women. The drug should be used with caution during pregnancy. Since no experience is available for the first 3 months of pregnancy, Octenisept® colorless should not be used in the first 3 months of pregnancy.

There is insufficient experience with use during lactation. Since the active ingredient is not absorbed through the skin, or only in very small amounts, it can be assumed that it will not pass into breast milk. If necessary, Octenisept® colorless can be used during breastfeeding. In order to avoid that the infant comes into contact with treated skin areas, Octenisept® colorless should not be applied to the breast while breastfeeding.
