My kitty has some acne on her chin and the vet has given me some hibatane (antiseptic soap) to wash her chin off with twice a day. Since the stuff is so close to her mouth, I'm worried she might ingest some of it accidentally. Although I'm very careful while applying it, her chin comes into contact with her front legs while sleeping and she licks that very same area on her legs while grooming herself. My vet didn't mention anything about rinsing it off after so I'm assuming I just have to dilute it (50%-50%) and apply it with a cotton gauze. Is there anything else I should be doing after applying it? Thanks a lot!
