If you cut yourself, hurt yourself or abrasion on the skin, iodine is a great remedy that will help prevent infection, prevent inflammation and promote rapid healing of small wounds or abrasions.
When you cut or small wound on your fingers, just pour iodine on the affected area. If the amount of abrasion or scratches large enough to handle, use a cotton swab, gauze pad or cotton pad. Iodine is an indispensable tool for the treatment of wounds with abrasions in children older than three years. If your child fell off the bike on hard pavement and damaged skin only on the surface, treat it with iodine. In the evening after the water treatment, repeat the treatment. This will help to quickly heal wounds and prevent suppuration.
When open wounds treatment with iodine can be carried out only around to minimize the amount of bacteria and the possibility of infection. The inner surface of the wound, rinse with hydrogen peroxide or chlorhexidine. If you treat the exposed surface of a deep wound with iodine, it will burn, and the healing will be much slower.
Before treatment the wounds on the fibrous surfaces, for example on the head, short cut hair, treat the wound with iodine at a distance of 3 cm. If there is superficial damage to the skin, carefully cauterized the abrasion iodine. For deep wound treatment, open wound surface can not be carried out.

Some people cannot tolerate the iodine, there are signs of allergies. Iodine cannot be treated with deep wounds, diabetic ulcers, and its use is contraindicated in renal failure, disorders of the thyroid gland.
