For the treatment of cold sores.

Povidone iodine belongs to a class of antiseptics known as iodophores. These chemicals exert their antiseptic effect by slowly releasing iodine. Antiseptics (sometimes called germicides) are chemicals that kill or prevent the growth of micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa and bacterial spores. Povidone iodine ointment is used for the treatment or prevention of infection in minor cuts and abrasions, minor surgical procedures and small areas of burns. It is also used for the treatment of fungal and bacterial skin infections and pyodermas and in the treatment of infections in decubitus and stasis ulcers (bedsores and leg ulcers). In the presence of blood, serum, purulent exudate and necrotic (dead) tissue, its action persists while the colour remains.

Use for:- Infected wounds or ulcers
- Treatment or prevention of infection in minor cuts and abrasions, minor surgical procedures and small areas of burns. Treatment of fungal and bacterial skin infections and pyodermas.
