Docsun Biomed Report On Safely Using Hand Sanitizer

By: WHO, CDC and FDA
 
JHUBEI CITY, Taiwan - Dec. 6, 2021 - PRLog -- We can help stop the spread of COVID-19 by washing our hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds – especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing our nose. If soap and water are not available, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend using alcohol-based hand sanitizers containing at least 60% alcohol to help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.

Rub the hand sanitizer all over your hands, making sure to get between your fingers and on the back of your hands. Do not wipe or rinse off the hand sanitizer before it is dry. Do not use hand sanitizer if your hands are visibly dirty or greasy; wash your hands with soap and water instead.

If you use alcohol-based hand sanitizers, keep these safety tips in mind.

Hand Sanitizers Are Drugs

Hand sanitizers are regulated as over-the-counter (non-prescription) drugs by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If you use alcohol-based hand sanitizers, read and follow the Drug Facts label, particularly the warnings section.

Keep Hand Sanitizer Out of Your Eyes

Be especially careful not to get hand sanitizer in your eyes because it can cause burning and damage to the surface of the eye. Watch young children around dispensers containing hand sanitizer, which are often mounted at eye level and can splash.

Use Hand Sanitizer in a Well-Ventilated Area

If you are using hand sanitizer in a closed area, such as a car, open the windows to improve ventilation until the hand sanitizer is dry.

Supervise Children Using Hand Sanitizer

Do not drink hand sanitizer. This is particularly important for young children, especially toddlers, who may be attracted by the pleasant smell or brightly colored bottles of hand sanitizer. Drinking even a small amount of hand sanitizer can cause alcohol poisoning in children.

Hand Sanitizer Is Flammable

Keep hand sanitizer away from heat and flames. When using hand sanitizer, rub your hands until they feel completely dry before performing activities that may involve heat, sparks, static electricity, or open flames.

Don't Make Your Own Hand Sanitizer

The FDA doesn't recommend that consumers make their own hand sanitizer. If made incorrectly, hand sanitizer can be ineffective – or worse. For example, there have been reports of skin burns from homemade hand sanitizer.

Hand sanitizers are a convenient alternative when handwashing with soap and water isn't possible. You can help protect yourself and your family from coronavirus with simple hygiene.
