Betadine Maximum Strength Ointment


I know that the Betadine ointment is available with Moisturizer OR with a pain reliever and these 2 products contain Aquaphor which contains Lanolin Alcohol and I'm highly allergic to Lanolin in any form. BUT does the maximum strength ointment also contain
Aquaphor? If it does, I wouldn't be able to use it.
Betadine ointment was taken off the market several years ago and now it's back - but the formula has been changed. I used it for years without any problems and now I don't know if I can use it again if it also contains

I suffer from a blood vessel disorder called Vasculitis. It affects the small blood vessels in both of my feet and legs. I've had this bout for 17 years now. Over a period of years the prescription anti-biotic ointment I'd been using, was no longer working and there was no other RX available for my use. A neighbor told me about the Betadine Ointment had helped her mother when she had infections and/or open sores on her legs. So in 2005 I started using Betadine Ointment for any infections I had on my feet/legs. It worked better than the RX anti-biotics I had been using. Then for some reason or other, Betadine was pulled off the market and all that was available was the Betadine liquid - which burned the sores on my feet/legs, so I couldn't use it. I tried many other anti-bacteria products and finally went back to the RX product which once again started working. I live in So. California and the only time the Vasculitis gets worse is during the summer's heat and high humidity, so I have to stay indoors with the A/C running as much as possible. In the cooler months, like we've had this winter, the Vasculitis goes into remission. Has anyone else used the Betadine Ointment for a similar condition? If so, please reply.

Hi Lori. Have you tried using the Medihoney Antibacterial Medical Honey? It is a sterile tube of 100% medical grade Manuka Honey. It is antibacterial and is safe for long term use. I use it for my family's sores and it works really well. You can get it online from Comvita. Best of luck.

Thanks Heidi for the info on the Medihoney Antibacterial Medical Honey. I've heard of the product but never tried it as no one that I knew with Vasculitis had tried it. But I'm at the age that now I'll try just about anything, if it helps.
