Frequently asked Questions about Lupidine Gargles

Question almost 5 years ago

Does chemical burn develop from Lupidine?

Dr. Piyush Malav MBBS, MS , General Surgery

Yes, rarely, a chemical burn can develop from Lupidine. It develops when during a surgical procedure, Lupidine is used, however, it doesn't dry and starts dripping, and collects in a body part. Symptoms may develop instantly or after a day. It develops because iodine causes irritation, maceration, pressure and then friction. Healing might not require much medical intervention but it causes discomfort, might prolong the hospital stay and expose a person to an infection.

How does Lupidine work?

Dr. Saikat Mukherjee MBBS , General Physician

Lupidine is also known as an iodophor, meaning that povidone is a carrier of iodine. Iodine kills the microbes as it acts as the active molecule. Once released from the complex, the free iodine penetrates into the cell walls of the microorganisms and inhibits the synthesis and structures of proteins and nucleic acids. Even though the complete mechanism is not understood, it is hypothesized that iodine disrupts the vital bacterial structures and mechanisms, denaturing and deactivating the bacteria. In-vitro studies have also suggested that iodine decreases the inflammation caused by the pathogens and host cells.
