Iodine has a strong killing effect on pathogens, which can degenerate the proteins of pathogens. Iodine can kill bacteria, fungi, viruses, amoeba, etc., can be used to treat many bacterial, fungal, viral and other skin diseases. Bacterial infections Staphylococcus aureus easily invaded hair follicles, the formation of small pustules in the hair follicle mouth, the central hair through, commonly known as folliculitis.

Generally not used in the occurrence of ulcerated skin. 3. Disable iodine allergy. 4. Iodine ban on mercury and mercury (commonly known as red syrup) at the same time coated to avoid mercury poisoning (reaction generated mercury iodide). Mercury iodide is a highly toxic substance that exerts a strong stimulating effect on the mucous membranes of the skin and other tissues and can even cause skin lesions and mucosal ulcers. If mercury iodide enters the body, it can cause inflammation of the gums and, in severe cases, heart failure.


Iodophor is an amorphous combination of elemental iodine and povidone. Povidone dissolves 9% ~ 12% of iodine, then presents a purple black liquid. But medical iodophor is usually low (1% or less), showing a light brown. The general liquid iodine with valid iodine 0.5% to 1%, its bactericidal effect is superior to iodine. Mainly used for skin disinfection, and do not need deiodination. Iodophor toxicity is small, non-irritating to the mucous membrane, but also non-corrosive to the disinfectant, the color is also easy to wash away.

Iodophor has a broad-spectrum bactericidal effect that kills bacteria, spores, fungi, protozoa and some viruses. In medical use as a disinfectant, can be used for skin, mucous membrane disinfection, but also deal with scalds, treatment of trichomonas vaginitis, fungal vaginitis, skin mold infections. Can also be used before hand surgery and other skin disinfection of hands, all kinds of injection site skin disinfection, equipment soaking sterilization and vaginal surgery before disinfection. Iodine Department of external medicine, oral.

Iodophor dilute solution of low toxicity, non-corrosive. However, dilute solutions are unstable and need to be formulated prior to use to avoid contact with silver, aluminum and divalent alloys as they are corrosive to metals. Prohibit the use of red blood mercury and other antagonists. The iodophor stock solution should be protected from light at room temperature.

There is also commonly used povidone iodine is a kind of iodine, povidone-iodine formal Chinese name is called: "polyvinyl-pyrrolidone iodine." In fact, the specific difference is not the same concentration. Iodophor effective iodine 0.2%, Povidone Iodine 0.5-1%; Different objects: Iodine is a skin disinfectant, Povidone iodine is a skin and mucous membrane disinfectant; Bactericidal effect is different: iodine is stronger than povidone iodine. Povidone iodine features: broad-spectrum bactericidal, bactericidal and strong, low toxicity, almost no irritation and corrosive, are effective against bacterial fungal viruses.
