For the longest time now, povidone-iodine has been used as a topical quick fix for cuts and wounds. Applied externally to all kinds of wounds—deep cuts, lacerations, gashes, etc.— povidone-iodine serves to prevent infection caused by bacteria and other microbes.
But did you know that povidone-iodine as a disinfectant works just as well when applied internally, too?
For this reason, Covidone throat spray is fast becoming known as a handy and effective oral preparation that provides your throat a layer of germ protection at any given time.
Here we list the five best things about using the new Covidone povidone-iodine throat spray.
- Protects you from COVID-19
Various studies have shown that povidone-iodine has strong efficacy as a preventive agent against the spread of SARS-CoV-2. This is because the antiseptic creates an extra layer of protection from the virus which impedes multiplication, making Covidone one of the most important tools you can have in your health kit today.
- Protects you from other non-COVID throat ailments
SARS-CoV-2 isn’t the only pathogen that Covidone TS can protect you from. Povidone-iodine has antiseptic properties that can prevent ailments caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi, such as influenza, polio, mumps, rubella, rotavirus, adenovirus, and many others.
- You can take it wherever you go
Packed in a 30 ml amber bottle, Covidone TS is rugged enough to withstand daily commutes and travels. This means that Covidone users can carry it around wherever they go, and apply whenever they feel the need to protect themselves from germs lurking in crowded areas and spaces. The sealed sprayer bottle with cap also keeps Covidone TS secure from all contaminants, assuring users that no harmful pathogens are present when they use the solution.
- It’s kid-friendly!
The return to face-to-face classes can be a source of anxiety for health-conscious parents who may dread the idea of their kids coming into contact with germs and getting sick from it. Fortunately, Covidone TS has been approved by the Philippines’ Food and Drug Administration, and certified as safe-to-use for children aged 6 and up. This means that most school-age kids should be able to use Covidone as an extra form of protection, giving parents that much-needed sense of security.
- It’s quick and easy to use
Finally, Covidone TS spells convenience since it is quick and easy to use. The solution only needs to be applied one to four times a day, taking 2-3 sprays each time to be effective. Users just have to make sure that they do not inhale the substance when spraying, and to spit out any excess liquid.
For those health-conscious individuals, Covidone TS may be purchased online through Lazada and Shopee, or purchased directly at select drug stores, grocery stores, and supermarkets nationwide. Online purchase at covidone.ph will also be available soon!
