    Our Pharmacy makes Chlorhexidine mouthwash without the Alcohol which our patients seem to tolerate better and have better compliance than the Biotene.

    Hello:

     

    We stopped using Peridex several years ago since it contains alcohol and it was too painful for the kids to use with Mucositis.  We use Biotene
