4.         Possible unwanted effects

 

Like all medicines, Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub can cause unwanted effects, although these are uncommon.

Allergic-type reactions, including a rash or difficulty in breathing, have been reported uncommonly with products containing iodinated povidone (the active ingredient in Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub).

Although rare, Povidone Iodine 10% Surgical Scrub could also cause itching and burns on your skin.

Applying very large amounts of medicines containing iodinated povidone, or using such products over a long period of time, can occasionally cause thyroid disorders (symptoms of which include weight loss, increased appetite and sweating; or lack of energy and weight gain). Other effects that have been reported are increased amounts of acid in your blood (the main symptoms are shortness of breath, confusion and lethargy), and kidney failure (symptoms include difficulty in urinating, thirst and a dry mouth, and pain in one side of your back).

 

Should you suffer from any of these unwanted effects, or if you notice any unwanted effects not listed in this leaflet, stop using Povidone Iodine Surgical Scrub straightaway and tell your doctor or pharmacist.
