Do not buy the spray container
The plastic spray dispenser is faulty. It has a hole in the bottom which leaks - a lot. Then the press button stuck and would not turn off, spraying everywhere, so we had it coming out from both ends. It was a new dispenser (brand new, just bought and never used before) and we had to throw it out - the whole product was wasted. This was last reported by someone 3 years ago - it should have been fixed by Betadine.
Purchased in July 2020 for $15.00.

Betadine a big Cannon in a small container.
The naked Aborigines could walk all over by burning the scrub to keep Australia like an English gentleman's park. Now escaping the terrible tourist invasion means getting off the beaten track and bush bashing and suffering scratches and cuts. I am a lazy old man who is not as fit as I should be and I have to count every gram I am carrying in a multi-day escape in the wilderness. The most useful object in my pack gram for gram has to be the Betadine antiseptic solution. It works even in the tropics where I used a product that has now been taken ...off the market as it was considered too toxic even for thick skinned Australians. Betadine has worked on coral scratches as well by applying it every two hours. In Possum areas with mosquitos carrying toxic infections you have to have the Betadine or you are a hospital patient. Every night after an all over wash, even If we only have a litre of water for washing; the Betadine is applied to every possible scratch, cut or mosquito bite. This is a time to find any ticks as well. This simple routine means we come home without needing to visit the nearest doctor or being too sick to walk out of a wilderness area. As I am very careful what I have to carry, when Grandma is not looking I take out cotton buds on a stick out of the First Aid box. The Betadine fine outlet can at first be thought of as a design fault but it allows very small quantities to come out only at any time for the small wounds. Grandma does get angry and threaten not to go bush with an unfit old man ever again that counts every gram; but on the next trip she says she cannot let me go anywhere by myself as my mother accepted an older women marrying her son when she was promised that I would be looked after. She is a skinny little old woman and I look after her by making sure she is not carrying more than 15 kilograms and always buy her a fresh bottle of Betadine for every trip.
The spray does not spray onto where it is pointing to. Today, it did not even stop, making a big mess. The antiseptic itself is ok but the spray is a bad idea. And it is more expensive.

I was just reading about Mr Peter Molloy in the news regarding the use of Betadine as a throat gargle, and reminded myself of the time some years ago when I had a small insect bite, quite possibly a small spider.
I noticed the bite area which started off as a a size of a pin head was starting to increase in size and staying as an infected area when I decided I had better do something about it.
I found Betadine in the chemist and started using it on the bite as many times as possible during the day, at least three or four and letting ...
