I am allergic to shellfish, can I take it?
Where does it have povidone in it? Here is what I found about povidone and shellfish allergies Shellfish allergic individuals do not have an increased risk of adverse reactions when eating foods containing iodine (an
element found in almost everything we eat).
Shellfish allergic individuals have no increased risk of a reaction from antiseptics such as Betadine (10% povidone with
Iodine solution, often before surgical procedures to clean the skin) compared to non-shellfish allergic people.
While allergies to radiological dyes do exist, the risk of a reaction in patients with a shellfish allergy is no greater than
someone who is not shellfish allergic.
