  6. There has been some disturbing Information concerning the misuse of chlorhexidine 7% solution as eye drops in certain communities of Yobe state, Nigeria leading to ophthalmic complications. This is in contrast to the nationally recommended 4% chlorhexidine gel for the cord care protocol. Apparently, the 7% chlorhexidine solution is packaged like an eye drop. It was given to mothers at the primary health care centres across the state after delivery to be used for cord care. It is not clear why some mothers decided to apply it to the eyes of their newborns, but it is believed that the mother were not adequately educated on its usage. The Federal ministry of Health and the National Association of Neonatal Medicine in the country have already swung into action to stop this unfortunate incidence. http://saharareporters.com/2015/09/09/chlorhexidine-solution-imported-unicef-turns-5-kids-blind-nigeria
