What works to use on an allergic rash from betadine?

Avoid and meds

Elbow_rash
First it was important to identify betadine as the trigger of the rash, such that it can be avoided in the future. After a thorough skin cleaning to remove the betadine, typically oral antihistamines can reduce itching and topical cortisone medications may also help. The healing will be gradual.

What is good to use on an allergic rash from betadine contact?

Wash-off first, then

Open-uri20120710-8507-1qs5v3n
Like most other cause of contact-allergies, avoidance is best treatment. if +contact, best is to wash-off as well as you can with warm water and soap. Then depending how severe, topicals such as calamide/cortisone can be used if skin is intact/or only minor abrasion. Oral benadryl/zyrtec help with itching. If more severe, you may need eval and prescriptions from your doc. Good luck

Do allergic rashes caused by Betadine require a particular treatment?

No

Prednisone
Any topical allergic rash, including from Beta-dine, needs to be treated with anti-inflammatory medication. Often topical steroids, such as cortisone, are used. Sometimes oral steroids, such as prednisone, are needed if the rash is severe.

After a scrape 7 days ago, & putting a plaster and betadine/iodine paint,I developed a red, blistering rash.Doc gave betamethasone but its not working?

Possible allergy

Iodine
Betadine and other iodine-containing topical treatments can be very irritating to the skin, and in some cases can cause tissue damage. An allergic reaction to iodine is also possible. All can take time to calm down, even with a decent topical steroid. I often recommend a simple route by using plain Vaseline on a superficial wound to protect while your body does what it does best to heal.

Dr. Bret R. Boyle answered:

Is betadine lotion is good for cellulities?

No

Cellulitis
If you have cellulitis which is caused by a bacterial infection of skin and subcutaneous tissue, antibiotics are an absolute must to cure the infection. Betadine lotion is not likely to have an impact on healing the cellulitis.
