Indeed, povidone iodine, known as Betadine, exists in a diluted and oral version, remind our colleagues of BFMTV, but it is not intended to be drunk and should be used for mild sore throats.

On the other hand, if you ingest classic Betadine, you risk having fever, headaches, or even severe vomiting.

The brand alerts and rejects any efficiency

On its website, the brand that markets the product in the United States, Avrio Health, had to recall that "

Betadine has not been approved

" in this sense and that anyone who has drunk Betadine should immediately see a doctor or go to the nearest poison control center.

As a reminder, the WHO website and the American CDC do not recommend mouthwash solutions as part of the fight against Covid-19.
