Remedy Description


"Ask the Doctor", Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Columnist, Feb 10, 2010


I am a 74-year-old female. Over the years, my nails have gotten worse. They are thin,

ridged, splitting and shredded. I have tried several remedies that were supposed to help,

with no change.

In one of your answers to someone who wrote about this problem, you advised using

decolorized or white iodine. I cannot find either product and hope you can advise me where

to purchase it.

I do not have a computer, so I cannot order it online. Is there a pharmacy that might have

it available?


Decolorized, white, colorless and clear iodine are all the same product. When my advice

first appeared, the product was hard to find, but over time, the requests for where it

could be purchased all but disappeared.

I assume this meant that it was readily available following an increased demand for it.

Recently, however, requests have started coming in again.

Decolorized iodine is available at most independent pharmacies, through the Rite Aid chain

under their store brand or brands, and will be available through the CVS chain, commencing

March 2010.

This is a modification of my original advice. Furthermore, a quick Google search by my

research staff found colorless iodine at many obscure Web sites as well as one popular

site -- Amazon.com.

Because you do not own a computer, this is clearly not an option for you. My only other

advice is to speak with your local pharmacist to request that he or she order it for you.
