Default has anyone used silver oxide cream (tetrasil)

I bought some collodial silver drops after reading Iggy's posts and others about it. I used some drops on the ball of my right foot which has been peeling.. it is just weird.

well.. I'm shocked. I looked at it tonight, after using it a few days.. then kind of forgetting to do it a couple of days.. and it is MUCH better.



but.. the drops are kind of watery. I was thinking maybe a silver creme might be better and came across tetrasil? but it is EXPENSIVE. Yikes!

has anyone used this? are there any other creams that people have used?

This one seems cheap enough to try. I've been waiting until I have a bigger order; just because of shipping costs these days. I've always liked this company, Baar.

Silver Salve

Whenever I buy any colloidal silver, I really like this company too, Utopia Silver. They have this silver gel with aloe vera. It should be good. There other products are. I just don't know what PPM is used in it. They are normally very good at responding to contact though.

Good choice. Tea tree oil is an antiseptic like silver. It's anti-fungal as well as antibiotic. Also, making your own with aloe vera is also a good choice. All 3 are very beneficial.

I like to add silver to grapefruit seed extract and/or coconut oil for topical use. They are also antifungal/antiviral/antibiotic!

what is the difference between grapefruit extract and tea tree oil? or oregano oil?

actually.. after looking at the ingredients in these salves.. I think I'm just going to mix something up.

my foot is looking better everyday.

Cracked heels can be caused from fungus, so maybe peeling skin on your feet is caused from fungus, too. The thing about fungus is it can become immune to an antifungal with repeated use. So, when I mix up a salve to put on my son's boils, which he gets occasionally, I change the mix. I used to put everything I had on hand that I knew to be antifungal including baking soda. Fungus cannot live in an alkaline environment, so that's why baking soda is good. Now, I'm hoping by using a couple of different antifungals each time I use the salve, it will prevent the fungus from becoming immune and the boils will go away permanently.

I don't really know what the difference is exactly, I just know they work!!! Iodine, olive leaf extract, cayenne pepper, turmeric, ginger, orange oil and garlic are also antifungal.
