Brief Answer:
Would not cause a health hazard. Nothing needs to be done.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that betadine gargle is not toxic for health and ingesting little quantities while gargling will not cause any health hazard. Nothing needs to be done about it.

Let me know if I could help further.
