Betadine (povidone iodine): “After surgical procedure on my foot/toe, the Betadine Soln was applied to the open wound, then bandaged. Within 10 minutes it began burning. ASAP, I removed the dressing & cleaned the area with saline. Blistering was evident. Daily wound cleaning, dressing changes, antibacterial ointment applied 'til healed.”

Betadine (povidone iodine): “I’ve been using Betadine solution for cuts and scrapes for many years. It’s always been tried and true until yesterday my son scraped his knee open wound. I bought a new bottle of Betadine from CVS made by Perdue pharma. I poured it on the wound and dried the area around and bandaged it up with a large band aid. The next morning 10am wound looked like beginning to get infected has Betadine always been made by Purdue pharma maybe a bad batch?”

Massengill Medicated Douche (povidone iodine): “I had used this product for several years when ever I experienced yeast infections from the medication I was taken. I found it to be very helpful in lessening the irritation. Is it still being sold? I have a need for it again”

Betadine Aerosol Spray (povidone iodine): “Betadine throat spray by Muni Pharma almost killed me. I used 1 spray into my throat and then I was gasping for breath. Always have someone around to help you before you start using it. I threw up on the floor and my throat is itching severely for the past 30minutes. Betadine active ingredient is Iodine which some people are allergic to, so wondering if this is the case.”

Betadine Aerosol Spray (povidone iodine): “This spray is USELESS. It didn't help me at the airport where I bought it, and it didn't help me in Taiwan. The only thing which it reliefs is the money from your pocket.”
