As if attempting to one-up last week’s stupidity with regards to ivermectin, anti-vaxxers on Facebook and Twitter are advocating for a new and unproven Covid-19 treatment: Betadine, an antiseptic used to treat cuts and scrapes.

Povidone iodine, often sold under the brand-name Betadine, is an iodine-based treatment largely for topical use that kills bacteria. It’s a “commonly used cleanser in the ER and OR,” says Kenneth Weinberg, an emergency room physician in New York City. “If you’re in the ER and someone has a wound to sew it up, you use it to clean with.” When told that anti-vaxxers had taken to gargling with Betadine, Weinberg said, “**** me! Of course they are.”

Solutions that include povidone iodine have also previously been marketed as a vaginal douche to treat itching in some countries. “We use it before surgery to clean the vagina,” says OB/GYN Dr. Jennifer Gunter. “The reason it is bad in douches is that it kills the good bacteria and can be an irritant.”

Heard about this one sweeping up the Iverretards and Chloroheads for a gloriously useless trifecta of crazy treatments

Cue crazies sweeping in to defend in 10...9...8...(okay my guess is a week or 2 before it properly hits our shores or the supply of horse-medicine runs low)

Come to think of it, just last week someone mentioned that they were doing this for a few months already.

And in true myBB style, the experts here will piss all over this guy cause somehow he wont be a recognised expert in this.

Stephen Challacombe is a professor of oral medicine at King’s College London, with a specialism in the immunology of the mucous membranes. His decades of experience meant that when the pandemic hit, his mind went immediately to one — literal — solution. Iodine mouthwash. “Yes. I have no doubt that this should be used,” Challacombe says, “and had it been, it would have saved lives.”

Yeah all those wasted vaccinations and covid deaths,YALL SHOULDVE GARGLED MORE IODINE SILLY PEOPLE
:rolleyes::rolleyes:
I never implied that mouthwash was a treatment for covid, however, the article is making it out the iodine is something that it's not. If you're stupid enough to swallow an antiseptic that's on you, but using it as a mouth wash for bacterial infections is fine.
