[Editor]  Using Iodine to Treat Skin Infections is a 200 year old tried-and-true simple, over-the-counter treatment for mild cuts and skin infections. The ancient Romans packed honey into clean, deep cuts. We now know that (for the Romans) the high sugar content killed bacteria. [Editor] For small wounds and skin infections after surgeries, I combined the iodine(Betadine) with sugar explaining why the wounds healed faster.
