Operation Septisse aerosol:
A drug in the form of an aerosol for application to the skin with octenidine dihydrochloride and phenoxyethanol. Thanks to them, Septisse has a bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal effect. The preparation is recommended for decontamination of small, superficial wounds, and to support their treatment. In addition, Septisse is used as a skin disinfectant before non-surgical procedures. The effectiveness of the aerosol in destroying microorganisms and inactivating viruses occurs one minute after application and lasts for an hour. After additional protein loading of the mucosa in laboratory conditions, the drug kills bacteria (including Chlamydiumi Mycoplasma), fungi, yeasts, protozoa (Trichomonas), viruses (Herpes simplex, inactivates HBV and HIV).
Septisse aerosol medicinal product indicated for: use for disinfection and supportive treatment of small, superficial wounds and skin disinfection before non-surgical procedures; repeated short-term antiseptic treatment of the mucous membranes and adjacent tissues before and after diagnostic procedures in the genitals and anus (vagina, vulva and glans penis), as well as before bladder catheterization; use as an aid in antiseptic treatment in the area of closed skin layers after treatments (e.g. post-treatment sutures); use in the genital area (e.g. vaginitis), as well as in the man's glans penis; use in pediatrics (e.g. for the care of the umbilical cord stump); oral cavity disinfection (mouth ulcers, irritation caused by wearing braces or dentures); a time-limited supportive antiseptic treatment of mycosis.

Do not use together with PVP-iodine antiseptics (iodine povidone complex) on adjacent parts of the body (risk of brown or purple discoloration). Septisse is a cationic preparation which, when combined with anionic washing agents or detergents, may cause sparingly soluble residues. Due to the risk of interaction with anionic compounds, it is recommended to use distilled water (or water for injections) as a solvent. The entry of large amounts of fluid into the bloodstream (e.g. accidental injection) should be avoided as octenidine dihydrochloride is toxic when administered intravenously. In order to avoid tissue damage or local swelling, do not inject or introduce the preparation into the tissue under pressure. Always provide adequate drainage from the wound cavities (e.g. drainage, suction). Use with caution in newborns (especially premature babies). The drug can cause severe skin changes. Remove any excess medicine and make sure that the solution does not stay on the skin longer than necessary. Do not use in the eye - if such contact occurs, rinse eyes with plenty of water. Do not use inside the ear, do not swallow. The drug can cause severe skin changes. Remove any excess medicine and make sure that the solution does not stay on the skin longer than necessary.
