Need written documentation that states betadine scrub can be used on mucous membranes. I was taught that only betadine paint was used for membranes
Is betadine scrub safe to use on mucous membranes?

What mucous membranes are we speaking of? And do you mean the surgical scrub or just betadine solution? Just betadine solution I have seen used on mucous membranes like the vagina to prep for urinary catheters and before surgery (because this is external use) but the surgical scrub has soap in it and would burn like mad! All iodines say they are not to be used in the eyes, nose or mouth.
