In brief: No

Any topical allergic rash, including from beta-dine, needs to be treated with anti-inflammatory medication.
Often topical steroids, such as cortisone, are used. Sometimes oral steroids, such as prednisone, are needed if the rash is severe.

In brief: Yes

You can react to the iodine or other ingredients.
Depending on the severity cold compresses may be adequate. This can be combined with a topical steroid over the counter or prescription.
