Take him to a herp vet ASAP. Try http://www.arav.org/USMembers.htm to find the nearest one to you. Good luck.

It is a link to herp doctors. You have to find one yourself by checking the state where you live.

As for the iodine, I don`t know what is wrong with your turtles, so I don`t know if what you were given will help. I`m not a herp vet. A herp vet be the best person to know. And I`ll bet the petstore people don`t really know either.
