In patients who are sensitive to iodine, the treatment with BETADINE® Vaginal Gel can very rarely lead to hypersensitive skin reactions such iododerma ullbosum or tuberosum, dermitis exfoliativa, angioneurotic oedema and acne.
Generally, these typical signs of iodism occur very rarely with prepatrations containing PVP-iodine and disappear very rapidly after withdrawal of the treatment.
In very rare, exceptional cases hypersensitivity to the inactive ingredient, macrogol, can occur: the gel must not be used in such cases.
