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: Betadine and other iodine-containing topical treatments can be very irritating to the skin, and in some cases can cause tissue damage.

Hydrogen Peroxide or Saline Solution with Povidone Iodine is better solution for cut, abrasion and wound?
Iodine: In general for minor cuts and abrasions the use of antiseptic therapy solutions is not warrented. These solutions (especially H2O2 peroxide) cause cell death and impair wound healing.
