My first injection was quite painful with sustained stinging and tears for over twelve hours. After 48 hrs when able to wash, I experienced a "chemical peel" in the surface of my facial skin where the iodine was used.
Today my clinician recommended using a "double dilution" of iodine as it is a safer cleanser. I also "armed" myself with "Hycosan moderate" eye drops for dry eyes. It contains over 200 metered drops and can last 6 months.
During the injection I experienced the "lava lamp" effect for a few seconds but all has been very good. Very little stinging and a much reduced gritty feeling. Its now 12 hours after and I have no effects. I did apply one drop of Hycosan each hour for its soothing effect.
Hope this infomation helps others.
