Top Customer Reviews
After many phone calls, I found it locally at only one pharmacy, at a price six times that mentioned in the article!
An online search located the product at a very reasonable price--even with shipping. I placed an order and received it in only a few days.
What a difference only a few applications have made! My nails are noticeably stronger, with no more splitting or breakage. My daughter tried the colorless iodine on her nails and has gotten similar results.
I highly recommend colorless iodine for problem nails.
It was so easy to find and order this product from Amazon. I received it in the mail quickly and am very happy with it. I just wish I would have ordered more than one bottle.
I know solid iodine is insoluble in most things so a potassium iodide solution is used as primer. That, in alcohol, will disburse (not dissolve) iodine crystals giving the characteristic dark color.
In this case, using stronger ammonia for the solvent plus an alcoholic potassium iodide solution will dissolve ammonium iodide to give a clear, ionic solution. Clever.
To check that it really is iodine, wet a tissue with hydrogen peroxide and put on it a drop of the iodides solution. In five minutes iodine is released and the the dark color develops.
For years I have been fighting toe fungus. In recent years I found that ordinary, cheap vinegar was properly acidic to promptly kill fungus, so I used that. It works well. I had thought about using iodine but toenail discoloration stopped me.
Well, now the answer was at hand so I tried using the Iodides Tincture for about a year. No color. I find it works well topically however a fungus spot developed under the nail and was not stopped by the either the Iodides or Vinegar on the surface. The regular tincture of Iodine slowly diffuses into the nail and has stopped that problem but of course I have a yellow toe nail.
