Frequently Asked Questions

What is Povidone-Iodine?

Povidone, also known as polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), was originally developed as a plasma expander for trauma victims. Now it is commonly used in artificial tears and eye lubricating products. Some contact lens manufacturers even incorporate povidone into their lens to act as a wetting agent to increase moisture retention. Povidone is also used as a binder in controlled-release tablets and in liquid oral medications. You can frequently find it listed in cosmetic products such as hair spray, lipstick, gels, toothpaste, and shampoos.

Large ingestions of povidone are expected to cause only minimal symptoms such as diarrhea. If povidone gets into the eyes or onto the skin, it might cause irritation and pain. There have been reports of severe allergic reactions occurring in sensitive people, but this reaction is rare. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction include wheezing; difficulty breathing; dizziness; chest tightness; hives; and swelling of the lips, face, tongue, or throat. If these symptoms occur, call 911 immediately regardless of the suspected cause.

When povidone is combined with iodine, it is most commonly used as an antiseptic for the skin (e.g., Betadine), but it can also be used in less concentrated forms for the eyes and vagina. Surgeons use povidone iodine to disinfect skin prior to surgery. The 10% povidone iodine solution is used most often to disinfect skin, but it also comes in diluted concentrations as low as 0.3%.

Common side effects seen with both povidone-iodine eye drops and skin formulations of povidone iodine include local swelling, irritation, itching, and rash. With overuse, povidone-iodine can have corrosive effects. With eye exposures, patients should irrigate the eyes for 15 minutes immediately after an exposure. Any persistent eye pain or symptoms might need medical examination and treatment. Ingestion can cause stomach upset, vomiting, diarrhea, and burns of the gastrointestinal tract.

In excessive doses, there is a risk for iodine toxicity, which can lead to kidney failure, changes in electrolyte concentrations, or other organ failure. Toxicity is most commonly seen when topical povidone-iodine is used chronically and in large amounts.

Certain people (burn victims, pregnant women, patients with kidney dysfunction, and those with thyroid disorders) should speak with their healthcare provider prior to using povidone-iodine because they might be more sensitive to the effects of povidone-iodine.

If you suspect someone is having symptoms from a povidone overdose, check the webPOISONCONTROL® online tool for guidance or call Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222.

Is Povidone-Iodine used for Operative Site Skin Preparation and Surgical Hand Washing?

Povidone-iodine or iodophor products are supplied in two distinct liquid versions. For the operative site preparation, a detergent scrub is first applied with sponges to mechanically remove gross dirt and oils from the skin. After the skin has been blotted with a sterile towel, a nondetergent solution is “painted” onto the area. This thin film of povidone-iodine continues to have bactericidal action for up to 8 hours after application. The solution’s brown color also effectively outlines the borders of the surgical scrub, allowing accurate placement of the towels and drapes before incision. Patients and OR staff who have a history of sensitivity or allergic reaction to iodine should refrain from the use of either of these preparations for surgical scrubs.

What are some medical uses of povidone iodine?

Povidone-iodine is a broad spectrum antiseptic for topical application in the treatment and prevention of wound infection. It may be used in first aid for minor cuts, grazes, burns, abrasions and blisters. Povidone-iodine exhibits longer lasting antiseptic effects than tincture of iodine, due to its slow absorption via soft tissue, making it the choice for longer surgeries. Chlorhexidine provides superior results with equivalent adverse events.

Consequently, PVP-I has found broad application in medicine as a surgical scrub; for pre- and post-operative skin cleansing; for the treatment and prevention of infections in wounds, ulcers, cuts and burns; for the treatment of infections in decubitus ulcers and stasis ulcers; in gynecology for vaginitis associated with candidal, trichomonal or mixed infections. For these purposes PVP-I has been formulated at concentrations of 7.5–10.0% in solution, spray, surgical scrub, ointment, and swab dosage forms; however, use of 10% povidone-iodine though recommended, is infrequently used, as it is poorly accepted by health care workers and is excessively slow to dry.
