By the nature of antiseptic activity, iodine Flomed is equivalent to other halogen representatives, but due to less pronounced volatility, the period of its local effect is longer.

The distracting, irritating and cauterizing effect of iodine Flomed is due to the property of the drug to coagulate the protein structure of the tissues.
