Make sure to use medicine recommended by the FDA.
As we advanced and progressed through the years, there are still many traditional practices that has been continuously used in modern days. One of those practices is the use of silver in curing illnesses and is used as an antibiotic.
Apparently, some promoters claim that silver is toxic to bacteria cells and is used as a burn treatment. But it’s also toxic to human cells, which is why legitimate health practitioners don’t recommend its use

In recent years, silver-containing products have been marketed with unsubstantiated claims that they are effective against AIDS, cancer, infectious diseases, parasites, chronic fatigue, acne, warts, haemorrhoids, enlarged prostate, and many other diseases and conditions.

But in 1999, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ruled that these colloidal silver products were not considered safe or effective. As a matter of fact, it has been proven that long-term use of silver preparations can lead to argyria, a condition in which silver salts deposit in the skin, eyes, and internal organs, and the skin turns ashen-gray.

Many cases of argyria occurred during the pre-antibiotic era when silver was a common ingredient in nosedrops. When the cause became apparent, doctors stopped recommending their use, and reputable manufacturers stopped producing them.
What is colloidal silver?
Colloidal silver is a suspension of sub-microscopic metallic silver particles in a colloidal base. Some marketers claim that colloidal silver is effective against hundreds of diseases. Despite these claims, silver has no known function in the body and is not an essential mineral supplement.
