Q: Why do I need to use Omnicide on every minor cut, scrape, or burn?
A: Because there is a possibility of infection once the outer layer of skin is compromised or broken.
Q: Will just cleaning the skin with soap and water prevent infection?
Q: There have been first aid ointments consisting of combinations of antibiotics available for over 40 years. Why shouldn’t I use these?
A: Because over the years, pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria have emerged that are resistant to these antibiotics. These combinations of antibiotics, such as Neosporin and Polysporin, are completely useless against resistant organisms such as MRSA,Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus.
Q: Is an infection with MRSA dangerous?
A: Very dangerous. It may need to be treated with intravenous antibiotics or custom antibiotics requiring hospitalization. A positive treatment outcome is not a sure thing; people have died because of MRSA infections.
Q: What makes Omnicide effective against MRSA?
A: As opposed to antibiotics which kill bacteria slowly by interfering with life processes within the bacterial cell, the PHMB in Omnicide causes an immediate disruption of the bacterial cell wall and instant bacterial death. This prevents the emergence of resistant bacteria.
Q: Has there ever been shown to exist a bacteria resistant to Omnicide/PHMB?
Q: How many applications can I expect from a 30 gm. tube of Omnicide?
A: Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-30 applications.
Q: Is Omnicide expensive to use?
A: Not at all. The average per use cost is less than one dollar.
Q: Does it make sense to keep a tube of Omnicide in my car or backpack, besides having a tube at home in my medicine chest?
A: Absolutely. Applying Omnicide immediately after a skin injury, and then reapplying it after cleaning the injury with soap and water will give you the best possible result,
Q: How often should I reapply Omnicide?
A: Reapply Omnicide each time the area is cleaned with water, until the skin lesion is completely closed.
