Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
You need to dilute it before using it.
The information is printed on the bottle itself.
But, you can dilute equal amounts. Say you are taking 10ml betadine, then use 10ml water to dilute and then use the mixture to gargle.
Do it for about 30-45 seconds and then you can spit it out.
Best regards.
