Treating Skin Problems with Colloidal Silver
What is colloidal silver?
Just like the name suggests, colloidal silver is a product with tiny particles of the metal silver combined with a fluid or otherwise known as a colloidal base. Yes you are right, the same metal silver, which is worn as jewelry! The tiny silver particles are capable of fighting different bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses thus making them a popular choice for people looking for alternate therapies for common health issues.
What colloidal silver can do for your skin?
Apart from being natural antibiotic, colloidal silver has healing properties therefore it can stimulate the healing process of damaged tissues and also wounds, burns and infections on the skin surface. It is applied directly to the wounds just like other antiseptics but colloidal silver doesn’t give a burning sensation because it only kills the germs on the wounds unlike other antiseptics, which also kill the surrounding skin cells.
Using colloidal silver for acne
Apart from taking the necessary dietary precautions like limiting chocolates, sugar and spice intake, using colloidal silver for acne can also clear out frequent breakouts and keep the skin clear. To benefit the most out of it massage a little amount of the colloidal silver onto the affected area twice or thrice a day. This routine can be followed continuously without fearing any side effects.
Using colloidal silver for warts
Common warts are actually an infection on the skin surface caused by a virus of HPV family in the human body. When the virus reaches the outer skin through a cut or a scratch it causes a quick growth of cells on the skin, which creates a wart. Treatment of warts should not be delayed as it is contagious and you may spread it to other parts of your body. There are a few wart treatments and surgeries on warts are also performed. Using colloidal silver for warts treatment is a relatively easy method and requires only dabbing the wart with a few drops of colloidal silver and covering with a bandage. It usually takes a few days for it to disappear completely.
Using colloidal silver for eczema and rashes
Eczema is a common skin disease, which causes dryness, itching, redness and flaky skin. It is triggered by allergic reaction caused by food, dust or exposure to some chemicals in soaps etc. To treat the eczema with colloidal silver pour a little onto a cotton swab and rub gently on the dry skin patches. Repeat a few times a day to keep the skin moist.
Colloidal silver for herpes
Herpes is caused by a virus named Herpes simplex type I and II. It causes blisters on skin and eventually the skin begins to itch and burn. There is no definite pharmaceutical cure for herpes and so the use of colloidal silver for herpes is gaining popularity. As colloidal silver can kill viruses applying it directly to the affected area will start to kill the virus almost immediately.
