Description

Betadine 10% Solution 100ml belongs to the class of medications called 'antiseptic and disinfectant' primarily used to treat and prevent skin infections in minor burns, lacerations (deep cut in the skin), cuts, and abrasions (the first layer of skin is scraped off). It also helps to treat infections of the lining of the mouth and throat, such as gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and mouth ulcers. Betadine 10% Solution 100ml is also used in infection control during insertion and care of urinary catheters, circumcision (removal of the foreskin from the human penis), suture removal and dressing changes. 

Betadine 10% Solution 100ml works by inhibiting the growth of infection-causing microbes. As a small molecule, iodine in Betadine 10% Solution 100ml can easily penetrate microorganisms and oxidizes essential proteins, nucleotides, and fatty acids, leading to cell death. Betadine 10% Solution 100ml is effective against bacteria (Gram-positive and Gram-negative, including antibiotic-resistant and antiseptic-resistant strains), fungi, viruses, and protozoa. Betadine 10% Solution 100ml is used in degerming (physical removal of microbes) stasis ulcers (wound on the leg or ankle due to damaged veins), decubitus ulcers (bed sores), and the umbilical area. It is also used for degerming the intravenous devices in blood transfusions, hyperalimentation (artificial supply of nutrients), cutdowns, and central venous line.

Betadine 10% Solution 100ml is available in the form of a solution, cream, ointment, external pad, swab, spray, surgical scrub, and eye drops. Betadine 10% Solution 100ml is for external use only. Cover the open wounds with a dressing or bandage after applying Betadine 10% Solution 100ml. Betadine 10% Solution 100ml has common side effects as every medicine does. These include local swelling, itchiness, redness, small blisters, and irritation at the application site. These side effects gradually resolve during the treatment and do not require medical attention.

Brief your medical history to the doctor, if you are allergic to iodine or povidone. Let your doctor know if you have an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) or thyroid diseases, liver, and kidney problems. Please tell your doctor if you are undergoing any lithium therapy or treatment involving radioactive iodine. Betadine 10% Solution 100ml should not be used before or after radioiodine scintigraphy or radioiodine treatment of thyroid carcinoma. Using Betadine 10% Solution 100ml during breastfeeding may increase the iodine levels in the breastmilk, which can cause hypothyroidism in breastfed infants. Betadine 10% Solution 100ml can cause excessive iodine absorption with its vaginal use, hence avoid douching (washing) with Betadine 10% Solution 100ml and iodine-containing tampons during breastfeeding. Please consult your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to conceive before using Betadine 10% Solution 100ml since it can affect the unborn baby.
