What type of gel is applied on baby's navel after the cord has fallen off and please is it compulsory?
My doctor recommended Chlorxy-G gel. Chlorxy-G gelis an antiseptic gel for newborn cord care. It is a high impact, low-cost medicine that prevents umbilical cord infections in newborn babies. Chlorxy-G gel is WHO recommended, affordable , simple to administer and accessible
Once the cord has fallen, just clean with moko methylated spirit or Chlorxy -G gel if still raw or yet to heal completely or become like normal skin.No need for any special care once it has healed fully and become like normal skin.
