Betadine

An antispetic used to skill bacteria in the surgical site. Frequently used to prepare the skin for surgery

Question: What is good to use on an allergic rash from betadine? I had surgery last week and I have a huge itchy, red, patchy rash all over my abdomen from either the betadine or the adhesive from the tape. I've tried taking benadryl pills & using benadryl cream, cortizone, and an RX Ketonal and nothing is working. I'm ready to jump out of my skin the itch is so bad...help! The rash is so bad it looks like psoriasas!

Answer: you need to call your doctor and get a stronger itch cream. They make higher doses of hydrocortisone cream, but they are prescription. I'd also have the doctor take a look at the rash if you can get in to see him.
