How Bodinex M Ointment works

Bodinex M Ointment is a combination of three medicines: Metronidazole, Povidone Iodine and Aloe Vera. Metronidazole is an antibiotic. It kills the bacteria and other microorganisms that cause infections by damaging their DNA. Povidone Iodine is an antiseptic. It kills harmful infections causing microorganisms. This is how it works to prevent and treat infections. Aloe Vera is a plant. Its extracts form a protective layer on the skin by restoring moisture, so that it feels hydrated and refreshed.
