May I use Lugol's Iodine instead of Tincture of Iodine to do the Iodine Patch Test?


The chemical make up of Lugols and Tincture of Iodine are quite different even though they both contain iodine.

Unfortunatly, you will not get an accurate result if you try to use Lugols for the iodine patch test.
