What is it used for?
Treatment of vaginitis due to candidal, trichomonal, non-specific or mixed infections.
How does it work?
Povidone iodine belongs to a class of antiseptics known as iodophores.
These chemicals exert their antiseptic effect by slowly releasing iodine.
Antiseptics (sometimes called germicides) are chemicals that kill or prevent the growth of micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa and bacterial spores.
The vaginal form of povidone iodine is available as a gel, pessaries and a cleansing kit.
Povidone iodine vaginal products are used for the treatment of vaginitis due to candidal, trichomonal, non-specific or mixed infections and pre-operative preparation of the vagina.
In the presence of blood, serum, purulent exudate and necrotic (dead) tissue, its action persists while the colour remains.
How to use
One Vaginal Pessary should be well moistured and inserted each night (using the applicator) for 2 weeks (lighter case can be 1 week), regardless of intervening menstruation.
