If this is the brown stuff you smear around a wound site. According to my handy dandy first aid kit that I bought here in Lima. Its the same. Now I can read anything wrong but it seems to be the same.

Would "Tintura de Yodo" (Tincture of iodine) work?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tincture_of_iodine . It is not exactly Betadine, which is is povidone iodine (PVP-I), "povidona Yodada" or "Iodopovidona" in Spanish.
