Frequently asked Questions about Omidine

Question about 5 years ago

Can Omidine be used to treat vaginitis in pregnant woman?

Dr. Bharat MBBS , General Physician

No, Omidine should not be used for the treatment of vaginitis in pregnant women. This is because exposure to iodine-containing solution could lead to the development of hypothyroidism and goiter in the infant. Vaginitis is the swelling of the vulva or vagina. It may develop from the use of soap, perfumes, not washing well, menopause, wearing tight undergarments, etc. It can stem from a bacterial, yeast, fungal or a protozoan infection. It can be effectively managed by washing the infected area with only water, keeping it dry, taking a warm bath, wearing comfortable undergarments, keeping the blood sugar levels under control and using pads and not tampons. It is also important to use an antiseptic as per the recommendations of a doctor.

Question about 5 years ago

Question over 5 years ago

What is Omidine?

Dr. Ajay Kumar MBBS, MD , General Physician

Omidine is a brand name for a complex containing elemental iodine and polyvinylpyrrolidone (povidone, PVP). It is extensively used as an antiseptic and a disinfectant. It is usually used in the solution form.

Question over 5 years ago

How does Omidine work?

Dr. Saikat Mukherjee MBBS , General Physician

Omidine 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.

Question about 5 years ago

Is it safe to use Omidine?

Dr. Yogesh Kumar MBBS , General Physician

Yes, it is safe to use Omidine for as long as it is prescribed by your doctor. Do not prolong its use or discontinue using it as per your own will. Follow the recommendations of your doctor completely.
