Dosage/Direction for Use
For external use only.
Wounds, burns, cuts and abrasions: Apply the solution, undiluted, onto areas to be treated and allow to dry. Air-permeable film is formed which can be easily washed off with water. The solution can be applied several times daily, for maximum of 14 days.
Disinfection of the hands: Apply onto the palm and lather with hands and fingers for up to 1 minute. The natural golden brown colour of BETADINE Antiseptic Liquid easily identifies the areas that has been washed. Areas that are not golden brown in colour indicates further handwashing is required. Rinse thoroughly with water. BETADINE Antiseptic Liquid is not recommended for continuous daily use throughout the year.
Before surgery: Apply to all areas of skin with special attention to skin folds such as the arm pit, groin and anal area. Avoid pooling both under the patient and in the skin folds. Skin burns due to 'pooling' may occur.
Remove any jewelry before use especially silver articles.
BETADINE Antiseptic Liquid should not cover large areas of the skin (e.g. not to cover more than 10% of the total body surface) and for not longer than 14 days.
