Is it safe to soak a toe ulcer in Betadine? How long? How often?


Posted by Susie

My elderly diabetic Mother was told by her podiatrist to soak her toe daily in a betadine solution ("1/4 c in a basin of water") What concentration is appropriate -- i.e. how big is a basin? How long a soak? Is there risk of sensitizing her skin to iodine?
