CONSUMER HEALTH INFORMATION Composition Povidone-Iodine 10% (equivalent to 1% available Iodine) in a buffered aqueous solution. Actions Povidone-Iodine is an iodophore in which Iodine is bound to the carrier molecule, Povidone. The complex, Povidone-Iodine, slowly liberates inorganic Iodine when in contact with the skin and mucous membranes. Only a small amount of Iodine is released at any one time, giving Povidone- Iodine a lower irritant potential, and longer duration of microbiocidal action than conventional Iodine solutions. Povidone-Iodine has the antimicrobial spectrum of Iodine. It has broad spectrum activity; including bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa cysts and spores. Indications For antisepsis of minor cuts, wounds and abrasions and treatment of minor skin infections. Directions for Use Apply undiluted to cleaned area with cotton tipped applicators or cotton wool, 3-4 times daily or as required. Area may be bandaged. Contraindications Known hypersensitivity to Iodine.
Precautions Avoid application to deep wounds. Povidone-Iodine may have a prolonging effect on the wound healing process. Its use therefore should be restricted to infection control of wounds, rather than general wound management. Warnings For external use only. If skin irritation or rash occurs, discontinue use and consult a doctor. Use in Pregnancy Use should be restricted to a single application or over a small area for a short period. Although no adverse effects are anticipated from such limited usage, caution is recommended and the therapeutic benefit must be balanced against the possible effects of the absorption of iodine on thyroid development and function.
Use in Children Premature infants. Not recommended for use as an antiseptic solution on premature newborn infants. Full term infants. The use of Povidone-Iodine containing preparations on full term infants may present a small risk of transient hypothyroidism especially if applied to large areas of the body and/or for extended periods of time (greater than five days). Repeated or large applications in full term infants should be used in conjunction with appropriate monitoring of thyroid function. Adverse Effects Rare cases of sensitivity to Iodine have been reported. Should skin irritation occur, discontinue use.
