Does chemical burn develop from Betadine?

Symptoms may develop instantly or after a day. It develops because iodine causes irritation, maceration, pressure and then friction.

How does Betadine work?

Dr. Saikat Mukherjee MBBS, General Physician

Betadine is also known as an iodophor, meaning that povidone is a carrier of iodine. Iodine kills the microbes as it acts as the active molecule. Once released from the complex, the free iodine penetrates into the cell walls of the microorganisms and inhibits the synthesis and structures of proteins and nucleic acids. Even though the complete mechanism is not understood, it is hypothesized that iodine disrupts the vital bacterial structures and mechanisms, denaturing and deactivating the bacteria. In-vitro studies have also suggested that iodine decreases the inflammation caused by the pathogens and host cells.
