I'm 14wks pregnant & hv used betadine sol'n 4 more than a week 2x a day on a rash. Is that ok for my baby?
Safe but...: Betadine is safe for topical use but it is not likely to treat or help with a rash. It is important to determine the cause of the rash so that proper medication can be used to fix it.
Cortisone: First wash off the betadeine, . You also can use cold compresses with milk to decrease the discomfort and use Hydrocortisone to decrease the inflammation. It this is not strong enough you will need a prescription for a fluorinated or stronger steroid cream from your dermatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Avoid and meds: 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.
Wash-off first, then: 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.

? iodide allergy: It sounds like a possible allergy to iodides (iodine-containing substances). If there is a rash in areas which were coated by the "orange stuff", that represents a "contact dermatitis". Contact the surgeon to confirm it was an iodinated substance, and note for the future your iodine allergy.
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.

Urticaria: Can't see a picture of your rash to see if it has the typical wheal and flare of hives, sort of like a mosquito bite or TB skin test in appearance.

Decrease inflammatio: Allergy tablets, I am guessing, are referring to antihistamines such as zyrtec (cetirizine), Claritin (loratadine), or Allegra (fexofenadine) act by blocking histamine receptors, which are responsible for the inflammation, swelling, itching, and erythema associated with allergic rashes.
