Action on the body

Betadine candles have a powerful disinfectant and antiseptic effect. The drug demonstrates high efficiency in relation to:

Combined with cellular proteins of infectious agents, iodine leads to their coagulation. At the same time it is discolored. As a result, the degree of saturation of the brown color makes it possible to judge the effectiveness of the drug.

The drug has a local effect, it penetrates shallowly into the tissue and is not absorbed into the blood. But his “work” occurs for a long time due to the slow release of active iodine from the tissues.

Improving health from the use of candles is manifested in:

The advantage of Betadine is also the impossibility of getting used to its composition and non-toxicity.

I developed inflammation, but I didn’t go to the doctor for a long time. As a result, chronic vaginitis was launched and brought to diagnosis. I felt discomfort in my vagina, my stomach ached in the lower part. The doctor prescribed suppositories Betadine. A day on a candle for a two-week course. During the treatment, I did not feel any side effects from those indicated in the instructions. Now feeling good, great smear. Zoya, 27, Vologda

I learned about Betadine candles when trichomoniasis was discovered. This was on the eve of the operation to remove ligatures (non-absorbed threads after cesarean). Two weeks put candles. At first there was a slight itch. But he quickly left. The only discomfort - the substance is strongly flowing and soils laundry. And the treatment was effective, without side effects. After him, I went for surgery. Larisa, 32 years old, Moscow

When removing polyps, Betadin suppositories were used for prophylaxis. The procedure was performed before surgery and after it. From iodine tingled a little, but inflammation did not arise. The operation was successful. Betadine vaginal suppositories are a great remedy against bacteria. If you do everything right and under the control of a doctor, you can completely get rid of fungi and other types of infections. Valentina, 37 years old, Perm
