Povidone Iodine


Arodin Gargle & Mouthwash is a pleasantly flavoured solution that is used :

  • For the treatment of acute mucosal infections of the mouth and pharynx.
  • For oral hygiene prior to, during, and after dental and oral surgery.


Povidone Iodine is a mixture of iodine and povidone, an organic polymer. Povidone Iodine is preferable to conventional elemental iodine because of its polymerization. It extends iodine’s germicidal effect by progressively freeing elemental iodine. As a result, it is less hazardous than elemental iodine. Microbicidal action against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and fungi/yeasts is achieved quickly. It also has sporicidal properties. It’s the only microbicide with such a broad range of effects. It is non-staining, has a long-lasting germicidal effect, and may be used with soap, blood, serum, pus, mucosal secretions, and water.

Dosage & Administration

Cream or ointment:

  • For the treatment of infection: Apply once or twice daily or at dressing changes for a maximum of 14 days.
  • For the prevention of infection: Apply once or twice a week for as long as necessary. The affected skin should be cleaned and dried and can be covered with a dressing or bandage.

Solution: Apply full strength as often as needed as paint, spray, or wet soak. Maybe bandaged (where necessary).

Gargle & Mouthwash: Adults and children over 6 years of age: Use undiluted or diluted with an equal volume of warm water. Gargle or rinse with up to 10 mL for up to 30 seconds without swallowing.

Surgical Scrub

  • For Preoperative and Postoperative washing by Operating Personnel: Wet hands and forearms with water. Pour about 5 mL of Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub on the palm of the hand and spread over both hands and forearms.

Rinse thoroughly under running water. Complete the wash by scrubbing with another 5 mL of Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub in the same way.
  • For Preoperative use on Patients: After the skin area is shaved, wet it with water. Apply Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub (1 mL is sufficient to cover an area of 20-30 square inches), develop a lather, and scrub thoroughly for about five minutes. Rinse off with aid of sterile gauze saturated with water.
  • For use in the Physician’s Office: Use for washing whenever a germicidal soap is required.

Powder: Apply a light dusting of powder to the affected area. When dry, this forms a protective antiseptic layer over the area treated. Or use as advised by the Registered Physician. There are no special dosage recommendations for children or elderly patients.
