Betadine Sore Throat Gargle is an anti-viral and anti-bacterial sore throat treatment that kills bacteria and viruses. There is no dilution required and comes with a convenient measure inside the pack. A sore throat may be due to a number of causes including smoking, allergic reactions and other factors. Most commonly though, they are due to a bacterial or viral infection of the throat. Betadine Gargle kills most bacteria and viruses implicated in sore throat (pharyngitis) within 30 seconds and may be used as an aid in the treatment of such an infected sore throat.
Pour Betadine Gargle to the fill line of the measuring cup provided (15ml) and gargle for 30 seconds. Do not swallow. Repeat every 3 to 4 hours if necessary.
A severe sore throat accompanied by fever, headache, nausea or vomiting, or any sore throat persisting for more than 2 days may be serious. In such cases consult a doctor. Do not use if hypersensitive to Iodine. If irritation, redness or swelling develops discontinue treatment. Not recommended for use during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding.
