No: I think that you should n ot do that. It is not good to use it on your vagina. Don't treat yourself see a health provider Read more
I do all the time: This agent has a lot of dependible benefits. I do make an effort to remove all the residual betadine from the skin after the wound is cleaned or stitched. Leaving it on can be very drying and cause later skin sensitivity to the product. Read more

Why would you?: As a surgeon, we constantly use products like this on our hands prior to starting an operation. Although safe to use, it can really irritate the skin and cause significant drying of the skin. Never a need to use on your face except prior to an invasive procedure. Read more
Depends: This is a commonly used disinfectant. I routinely use it for preparing skin for suturing on almost any body surface. I make an effort to remove any residual betadine after the procedure. Leaving it on is thought to increase risk of sensitizing the skin to the product making future use likely to cause a rash. Read more
Yes, but unnecessary: Snap fissures heal well without specific intervention usually. Those that do not require surgery. Unless a specialist has instructed that you use betadine, I would avoid it as it can interfere with growth of new healthy cells as well as killing bacteria. Sitz baths a few times a day and a super gentle soap is all you need, possibly plus a soothing medicine for pain. Read more

In chickenpox, is it safe and beneficial to use Betadine solution on the skin including the face to ease itching? Can it be applied to the scalp too?
I wouldn't: Betadine has the potential to sensitize you (make allergic) to its components if it is left on the skin for indefinite periods. I make great effort to remove any trace of it after I use it to sterilize an area for a procedure. Read more
