    There is a study (the lead author is Molina 2000) that showed the best treatment for a dropped is treated with 90 second soak in chlorohexadine gluconate had the best outcomes for negative cultures.

    there is also a protocol for 30 minute soak in cholrohexadine followed by washing then 30 minute soak in triple antibiotic.

    I have worked in places with both protocols
