Frequently Asked Questions

BETADINE COLD DEFENCE is an innovative treatment for early intervention and treatment of common cold and flu-like illness.

The recommendation is for up to 7 days.

The clinical trials have shown that BETADINE COLD DEFENCE is well-tolerated, no nasal irritation, smell or taste. One of the key things is that the iota-carrageenan in the spray is not absorbed by the body, as it works through physical means, not medicinal pathways. It is a medical device.

Carrageenan is commonly found in food products and is generally recognised as safe. You have to remember there are three different types of carrageenan: iota, kappa and lambda. The BETADINE COLD DEFENCE spray only contains one type of carrageenan, which is the iota-carrageenan, and the iota-carrageenan is generally well tolerated.

You can continue to use the saline spray to remove crusting and wash the nose. But you should always use the BETADINE COLD DEFENCE after the saline spray, otherwise you are going to wash out the Cold Defence and reduce its efficacy. Always seek the advice of your physician with any questions you may have.

The concentration of BETADINE Cold Defence for adult and paediatric is 1.2 mg/ml. Whilst the concentration is the same for both adults and kids, the spray mechanism is designed to deliver a smaller volume for kids noses.
