Hello ,

I'm wondering if anyone has tried topical iodine?

I know for acne they often say to stay clear of iodine rich foods but I have not been able to find anything about using it topically - other than on the reviews section on this site. Whenever I've had a wound the hospitals here (UK) always wash the wound with iodine to prevent infection, it got me thinking if it would work on inflamed, open or infected acne. I've bought a low strength iodine solution made by Savlon and am going to start trying it at night.

Be interesting if anyone else has any knowledge about this or whether it's helped or not . Thanks :)
