Contact the surgeon to confirm it was an iodinated substance, and note for the future your iodine allergy. ...Read more
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. 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. ...Read more

What can I use to treat minor scrapes for 2 month old babies? (she sratches herself and has sharp nails).Neosporin, betadine?
Vaseline / Aquaphor: I recommend using topical petrolatum ointment (vaseline or a brand named aquaphor) this is safe to use and heals scrapes and scratches quickly. Using topical neosporin or betadine increases the risk of developing an allergy later in life. You could also use coconut oil as it has antiseptic properties and will not harm your baby. ...Read more

You should monitor for signs of fever, redness, discharge, or severe pain. I would still recommend seeing a medical provider to evaluate your wound and make sure your tetanus status is up to date. ...Read more

Not likely: Those are curious treatments for vaginal infection, but the only medicine there I would be worried about is floxacin. The fetus was likely exposed to very little, just don't use them any longer. ...Read more
