How to Treat a Rash With Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver is an all-natural, safe and inexpensive solution for the treatment of skin rashes. It acts as a local antibiotic and also a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. According to the True Colloidal Silver website, silver has been employed for more than 100 years against infections or infectious diseases -- and 70 percent of hospitals in the United States use a silver-based cream as a preventative in order to treat infections in burn patients. Many skin rashes are caused by bacterial infection in the oil glands, which makes colloidal silver cream an effective method for treating a rash. Knowing how to use colloidal silver to treat a rash will help properly heal your skin.

Step 1

Wash out a spray bottle with soap and water, turn it upside down, and let it dry for a couple hours. If you would rather use the colloidal silver cream, you will not need to use a spray bottle and you can skip this step.

Step 2

Pour the entire bottle of colloidal silver liquid into your spray bottle, screw the spray pump on the bottle, tighten and shake thoroughly.

Step 3

Clean your rash with warm water and soap. Dry the area completely -- spray the rash three to five times with your spray bottle. Let the area soak with this solution for about five minutes, then lightly pat dry with a clean, soft absorbent cloth.

Step 4

Apply colloidal cream if you prefer to save time, and you only need to apply it two or three times per day. Apply the cream after carefully cleaning and drying the rash -- gently massage it into the rash area thoroughly.

Step 5

Wash your hands after you're finished applying colloidal silver -- if the rash is contagious, consider securing a sterile gauze pad over the affected area after applying colloidal silver.
