Murray's foot blister treatment: Name of pre-dressing sticky lotion ??
 
On the TV coverage moments ago they showed the trainer applying a green coloured solution onto Murray's blistered feet. Jim Courier said it was a lotion to prevent the band-aid or blister pad from slipping whilst the foot is in motion.

What is this lotion? I could do with some on my blistered feet right now; the dressing is always falling off.

I think it's basic betadine
It looked like it

I thought Betadine was an antiseptic mouth gargle for sore throats etc??

Also
But it has many variations, for surgery also and home use

I suspect it was actually Tincture of Benzoin. You should be able to get it a most drug stores (at least in the US)--typically in the antiseptic section. Tincture of Benzoin is sticky unlike Betadine and is often used in the treatment of blisters. Good luck.
