Povidone iodine (10% iodine)
Disinfection and cleaning of injured skin (wounds, sores, etc.)
Betadine 10% cutaneous solution : It is applied 2 times a day directly on small wounds and skin infections. A quantity of 5 ml of solution (containing 50 mg of iodine) is sufficient to treat an area of about 15 cm per side. For skin antisepsis: apply a protective layer of the brown solution until a medium intensity color is obtained: a superficial film is formed that does not stain.
Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients listed in section 6.1. Hyperthyroidism Do not use in children less than six months of age.
Avoid the simultaneous use of other antiseptics and detergents. The polyvinylpyrrolidone-iodine complex is effective at pH values between 2.0 and 7.0. It is possible that the complex reacts with proteins or other unsaturated organic compounds, resulting in a reduction in its effectiveness. The concomitant use of preparations with enzymatic components for the treatment of wounds leads to a weakening of the effects of both substances. Povidone iodine should not be used simultaneously with products containing mercury salts or benzoin compounds, carbonates, tannic acid, alkali, hydrogen peroxide, taurolidine and silver. The use of povidone-containing products concomitantly with other antiseptics containing octedin in the same or adjacent sites may cause a momentary darkening of the affected areas. The oxidative effect of povidone-iodine preparations may cause false positive results of some diagnostic laboratory tests (e.g. toluidine or guaiac gum tests for the determination of hemoglobin or glucose in faeces or urine). Avoid habitual use in patients concomitantly treated with lithium. Absorption of iodine from povidone-iodine solution may reduce thyroid iodine uptake. This can interfere with various tests (thyroid scintigraphy, determination of iodine-binding proteins, radioactive iodine diagnostics) and can make a planned treatment of the thyroid with iodine (radioactive iodine therapy) impossible. After the end of the treatment, an adequate period of time must elapse before performing a new scintigraphy.
