Chlorhexidine alternative

I'd like to know what OTC dental rinse is comparable to Chlorhexidine which I've used in the past. I already use Listerine but I'm having a gum infection problem again and can't see my dentist. Thank you.


Hi I recently attended a dental class taught by a periodontist who suggested Closys as an alternative to both Listerine and Chlorhexidine. It has a mild flavor and none of the side effects of Chlorhexidine but is just as effective.

You can order it from Amazon if you scroll down to the end of this note.

Thanks for writing,
