About Povirid Powder

Povirid Powder is used to treat common skin infections. It treats and prevents skin infections in minor burns, lacerations (deep cuts in the skin), cuts, and abrasions (the first layer of skin is scraped off). Skin infection occurs when foreign microorganisms like fungi or bacteria invade the skin and affect the tissues.

Povirid Powder contains Povidone Iodine. It works by inhibiting the growth of infection-causing microbes. As a small molecule, iodine can easily penetrate microorganisms and oxidize essential proteins, nucleotides, and fatty acids, leading to cell death. Povirid Powder is effective against bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa.

Povirid Powder is for external use only. Povirid Powder may cause common side effects like red or inflamed skin, peeling skin, dry skin, and irritation at the application site. These side effects gradually resolve during the treatment and do not require medical attention. However, if the side effects persist longer, please seek medical help.

Brief your medical history to the doctor if you are allergic to iodine or povidone. Let your doctor know if you have thyroid diseases, liver, and kidney problems before starting Povirid Powder. Please tell your doctor if you are undergoing any lithium therapy or radioactive iodine treatment. Do not use Povirid Powder before or after radioiodine scintigraphy or radioiodine treatment of thyroid carcinoma. Please consult your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to conceive or are a lactating mother before using Povirid Powder.
