Iodine is a strong anti-bacterial element. It can be painted on to the back of the throat several times a day to fight strep throat. This natural remedy has been used for generations and in days before anti-biotics.

I have treated a number of sore and strep throats and loss of voice; painting iodine on the outside of the throat clears all within 24 hours. Iodine absorbs into the skin in about 6 hours. Also works for ear problems and swollen glands.

Nope. Painting the throat with iodine has not ever helped my daughter who repeatedly gets strep throats. We tried it for awhile and soon enough had to go to a Doctor. Although I tried it with multiple other remedies at the same time, I would not waste valuable time on this remedy.
