They were randomly divided into betadine (n=50) and water (n=50) groups and were similar regarding age, weight to height ratio, health status, head periphery, labor duration, number of sutures and type of method. The efficacy was determined according to wound healing, redness, infection and suture absorption at first, fifth and tenth days post-operation.

Swelling less than 1cm at 10th day was 68% in betadine group and 40% in water group. Redness less than 3mm was 60%, 46% and 68% respectively, but it was 60%, 38% and 66% in water group. Absorption of skin stitches at 10th day was 46% in betadine group and 52% in water group. There were no signs of wound opening and infection in both groups.
