    Could Iodine Nasal Spray & Mouthwash Cause a Negative Test

I was feeling bad a couple of weeks ago and had some of the symptoms of Covid-19 – headache, fatigue, sinus congestion that would come and go, runny nose. I got tested because I knew to be treated with monoclonal antibodies, it needed to be done within the first few days.  The test was negative and I felt better about 5 days after 1st having symptoms.

Here’s the thing. I take Ivermectin preventively twice a week and use iodine nasal spray and Listerine mouthwash. I used the nasal spray just before going to be tested.

Could this have caused a false negative?  I never get a cold and have only had the flu twice in my life, so I think it unlikely I had either of those.

yes,yes and yes.

you could test false negative because of you treatments including ivm.

however, never assume you had COVID.   unless with positive test and moderate – severe disease

But this means anyone could guarantee themselves a negative test any time…

PS Do you really use iodine nasal spray or do you use Betadine nasal spray, which is Carrageenan?

    case report

Friend of mine got double jabbed.  Then got COVID.  He did early treatment (including monoclonals, and ivermectin, and some other things) and his symptoms mostly passed.  6 weeks later he wanted to fly.  He tested positive on PCR, missing his flight.  I assumed it was fragments and the usual 40-cycle PCR.  (Won’t it be nice when the stupid PCR finally goes away?)

So I told him about nasal irrigation and the gargles.  He went a little overboard – a q-tip with some relatively undiluted iodine (apparently it burned a little) – but two days later, he ended up testing negative prior to his flight.

I sure wouldn’t do it that way.  But I might use 10:1 diluted povidone-iodine in a nasal spray.  Or maybe just saline.  What does FLCCC recommend again?

Hmm.  I’ve got a flight coming up…I should probably check it out again.

Boy.  Oligarchy really doesn’t want us to travel, do they?

“Stay in your rooms and watch netflix, Plebes!”

Long story short: if I wanted to see if I’m really positive, then yeah.  No nasal irrigation prior to the test.

Related: if you want to see if you really got COVID, get a quantitative antibody test.  I was at an “AnyLabs” the other day – family came in, wanted to see who had antibodies – staff suggested the family could get either a finger prick (pos/neg) or a more fancy quantitative antibody test sent in to the lab.  They chose the finger prick.

I’d pick the quantitative test.  Its just more fun to see the number.  🙂

    Could Iodine Nasal Spray & Mouthwash Cause a Negative Test

I believe FLCCC recommends 1% p-iodine.  But it is effective at only 0.23%.  I cut the difference at 0.5%.

If I wanted to create a negative test (to avoid a false positive), I would do a full nasal irrigation, not just nasal spray.  And also antiseptic mouth gargle.

If I wanted to create a negative test I would do Hydrogen Peroxide nebulizing for 15 min .
