Betadine Sore Throat Gargle is a concentrated anti‐bacterial formula used as an aid in the treatment of sore throats. This gargle must be diluted before use; a convenient measure is included in the pack.
Cold sores are painful, fluid-filled blisters that form on the borders of the lips most often caused by the herpes simplex 1 virus. These contagious blisters break and then crust over before healing, leaving an unsightly scab on the lips. Recurrences are common and can be triggered by stress, sun exposure, lowered immunity and menstruation. Genital herpes infection is a related condition although usually caused by herpes simplex 2.
Betadine Cold Sore Ointment is for the treatment of cold sores. Betadine Cold Sore products if applied at the first signs of a cold sore (usually an itching or tingling sensation) can help check the infection. They can kill the virus, thus reducing the risk of spreading the infection.
Contains 10% w/w Poviodine-Iodine Equivalent to 1% w/w available Iodine.
Advantages of BetadineTM Cold Sore Preparations
The BetadineTM range ensures treatment is effective at all three stages of the cold sore:
If applied during the prodromal stage, BetadineTM can prevent blister formation, or at least reduce the severity of the attack.
BetadineTM will also prevent secondary infection of the blister during the second stage.
If applied during the third stage, BetadineTM will help an infected blister heal.
Recommended for use when the lips are dry and cracked, ointment acts as a balm.
Apply the Betadine Cold Sore product liberally to the affected area at least four times a day.
Warnings and Cautions:
For external use only.
