In Response To: Mercurachrome was fluorescent red, not iodine, I believe. (mlou)

MLou, I leapt up and ran to the medicine cabinet when I read your post.

Geez! I think this means I experimented with both as a child. An 'antique' bottle of Tincture of Iodine (saved from my grandfather's farm and not in current use) proved to have a bright gold-red color when the liquid was on the glass rod and turns yellow on skin, which also brought back memories!
Given all the information about mercury in some fish and dental fillings (I've had plenty of both), and the iodide in salt in diet, this is the usual ecologist's and epidemiologist's nightmare of trying to tease out separate factors.
One thing I DO remember was that whatever it was I painted on, disappeared rapidly, so I was either defieicnt in Iodine (per Armchair's note) or absorbing mercurochrome faster than expected.
