In cases of acute poisoning, the skin is cleaned with a 2% solution of soda. The stomach is washed with a 5% solution of sodium thiosulfate. This drug is used as an antitoxic agent. In case of poisoning with iodine salts, sodium thiosulphate is prescribed in a dosage of 1.5 to 3 grams, this corresponds to 5-10 milliliters of a 30-percent solution for intravenous administration. In addition, sodium thiosulfate is also administered internally once-only in a dosage of 2-3 g with a 10% solution, which is prepared by diluting 30% solution with saline in a 1: 2 ratio.
Adverse reactions to the drug may be allergic manifestations, sudden jumps in blood pressure.
With chronic iodism, it is necessary to stop the intake of iodine into the body, i.e. Stop taking iodine-containing drugs, exclude work in harmful production, appoint a special salt-free diet to the patient.
It should also be noted that various vitamin complexes and biologically active additives may contain a trace element iodine, so these products should also be excluded from the patient's diet.
In cases of violations of water-salt metabolism, the patient is given infusion therapy.
Operative treatment in the treatment of iodine does not apply.
Treatment with alternative methods
Alternative agents are used only as an auxiliary in the treatment of iodism. To neutralize the action of the microelement, iodine is consumed by products: jelly on starch, butter, eggs, milk.
