Betadine Woundcare Steps to Treat Wounds

What is an antiseptic and how does it differ from a disinfectant?
Both antiseptic and disinfectant prevent the growth of disease-causing micro- organisms. The main difference between the two is that disinfectants are usually used on inanimate object (e.g. tables, floors, chairs) and antiseptics are more suitable for human skin.

Antiseptics are used as a treatment to cleanse cuts, scratches, burns, grazes or other minor injuries where the skin is broken, or as a preventive measure before piercing the skin (e.g. an injection). For this very reason, BETADINE® has a wide range of antiseptic formats for your different needs.

How do I choose the right antiseptic?
You should not use an antiseptic that kills all germs but causes a skin reaction or affect wound healing. On the other hand, an antiseptic that is gentle on the skin or on wounds but does not kill germs will not prevent infection and may even prolong the wound healing process.

Why is it important to use an antiseptic when you first experience an injury?
The main reason for using antiseptics on wounds is to prevent and treat infections, making the healing process faster. Infections can cause delays and prevent healing, or even worsen the wound condition.
