I added a jigger of povidone to some enema water one time, and got a really bad hemorrhoid from it. A few months later, I tried it again with an eye dropper full of lugols, and got another hemorrhoid. Seems like the Iodine
goes after a hook worm, which digs it's teeth into me. I have no problems with putting in just a few drops. Start with a couple of drops. If that goes well, double the Iodine. Etc.
