Oddly enough, but most of us are increasingly resorting to recipes of traditional medicine in the treatment of many diseases. Someone was disappointed in the effectiveness of modern drugs, someone does not have enough money to buy them. It doesn’t matter for what reason, but iodine-depriving treatment is more common today than with expensive drugs. Someone learned this recipe from the grandmother, someone told an acquaintance, personally faced with the disease and the effectiveness of iodine in the fight against it. One thing is for sure – iodine from lichen helps, but not in all cases.
What Kind of Lichen Can You Get Rid of with Iodine?
Iodine is most often treated with microsporia, but under the condition that the disease is at the initial stage of development. This remedy is well treated for mild lichen, not only in humans but also in animals. Less commonly, it is used in the treatment of multi-colored lichen, which is best to get rid of antifungal drugs.
In no case can not apply iodine in the treatment of pink lichen, which is so much dry and peels the skin. Of course, nothing terrible will happen, but in the place of application of the preparation you will feel a strong burning sensation and dryness of the skin. Here it is necessary to use only antifungal drugs.
The use of iodine-containing agents for persons with personal intolerance is strictly prohibited. Otherwise, the treatment can result in sabotage.
How to Treat Lichen with Iodine?
At the first signs of lichen (the appearance of small spots, itching and weeping around them) the lesion is treated with a cotton swab previously moistened with iodine. It is advisable to treat the wounds 2 times a day for 2-3 days. If there is no effect and you can see an increase in spots or an increase in itching, then the further use of iodine is absolutely useless.
A very common method of treatment is to deprive with iodine (3-4 drops) and alcohol (50 ml). All ingredients are well mixed and process lesions 3 times a day for two days. If it is hard to skin, dilute the solution with distilled water. In the absence of visible results on day 3 – treatment should be stopped and seek the help of a specialist.
Concomitant Factors for Successful Treatment
The most important condition is to minimize lesions as much as possible. At the time of treatment, it is best to refuse water treatments altogether (meaning the first 2-3 days when the first signs are found).
Increased compliance with the rules of personal hygiene. The patient must have his own:
- A cup;
- Things (socks, etc.);
- Personal hygiene items.
After complete recovery, clothes, linen and other items that come into contact with the patient are best brought to thorough disinfection. Treat the furniture and appliances with special antiseptics, and wash the clothes and clothes thoroughly and iron.
