Betadine drug is a good remedy, as an antiseptic of burns and bedsores. He himself recently encountered a problem - caring for a lying relative. Four months a person did not get up, because there were consequences of injury. Wounds were treated regularly, as well as those places where probes were inserted. The effectiveness is excellent, there were no side effects. Maxim, Samara
