I painted my face with Iodine one time. It was orange for three days, but I am glad that I did it. I would also mix up some vermifuge essential oils and paint with it twice a day. I sometimes pour essential oils in my face lotion and shake it up. That keeps me dosing for an entire bottle of lotion. Be careful not to burn yourself. Both Iodine and essential oils can irritate the skin and make you peel unless you dilute them sufficiently. Also be taking vermifuge worms orally to discourage them from diving into deeper tissues.
