Regular hygiene: You should have received specific instructions following your surgery. Usually regular hygiene suffices. Would suggest avoiding topicals unless specifically recommended on the post surgical pamphlet.
It's formula: From wikipedia: "usp tincture of iodine is defined in the U.S. National formulary (nf) as containing in each 100 ml, 1.8 to 2.2 grams of elemental iodine, and 2.1 to 2.6 grams of sodium iodide. Alcohol is 50 ml and the balance is purified water.

Poked by thumbtack at work, squeezed blood out&immediately applied iodine tincture bp, no rust on thumbtack, haven't had tetanus shot, risk of tetanus?
A wound is a wound: Tetanus is possible when any cut on the skin is contaminated by tetanus spores that are all around, predominantly in soils. It doesn't matter what made the cut if the exposure comes after the skin is open. The rusty nail is the classic source because it is on the ground to begin with when people step on it. Even if low risk it serves as a reminder to update your protection. If >10 yrs get the shotSee 1 more doctor answer

See your doctor or: Dermatologists to check out your skin. Normally, bleaching agents do not work that well around moles, and you want s/her to look at your mole and document your finding.
If a skin mole is accidentaly scraped (in a fall etc.) off or accidentaly shaved off is this a cause for worry?
Mole 3mm rounded brown scraped off in fall. Normal skin grew back with no mole. Any cause for concern? What to do re this?
Is it normal for a mole to fall off and grow back? I've had it for about 4 years now. It's always fallen off and grown back within a few days.
Would encourage: You to have your parents bring you to your physician or a dermatologist so that this can be evaluated.
