In brief: Yes and
Chlorhexidine helps kill the bacteria, but it cannot reach into the pocket (deep) where the harmful bacteria reside. Look into the perio protect method to see if you can find a dentist near you who can help treat the cause so you don't have the disease effects.

In brief: Used for gum infxn
Chlorhexidine is a germicidal mouthwash that reduces bacteria in the mouth and is prescribed most often by dentists and some physicians.
It is used to treat gingivitis (swelling, redness, bleeding gums). Gingivitis is the early form of gum disease and is reversible. Chlorhexidine alone is not enough to cure gum disease. You'll need the help and guidance of a dentist to combat your infected gums.
