GAAAAAAH IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE???
So painful I want to scrape it with potsherds and sprinkle ashes on my head.
The weekend was a real low point. I was too scary to go to church, and hurt too badly to think of anything else. I sat there and scrunched my lower lip to pop the blisters and let out a little pressure...
...and contemplated all the possible ways to get rid of my face. Dynamite, TNT, nuclear weaponry, I considered it all.
As soon as I woke up March 1, I had decided to order colloidal silver. (God had wanted me to have it already on hand, and I didn't listen, but that's a whole nuther story.) Now, I had tried CS before and been rather underwhelmed. Being heavily influenced by my Scottish roots, I had gotten the very cheapest, which I have recently learned was also the very wateriest. All but useless. This time around, I got some really strong stuff, which was 500 ppm instead of about 20. It finally arrived on Wednesday, March 7.
About the only thing I've been able to figure out about colloidal silver is that there are about as many different opinions as there are people in the world. I have no desire to bog down in any arguments, and am simply sharing what I did for myownself. I recommend doing your own experimentation on all sorts of different problems, and see what happens. Use common sense, pray for guidance, and God will show you what you should do.
The following should also be considered. Long-term internal use of high doses of colloidal silver can, in some cases, lead to a bizarre condition called argyria, a permanent change to the pigment of the skin, ranging from gray to bluish. I haven't been able to find any harmful side effects for topical use. So, in a nutshell, my own personal philosophy at this point is to apply it liberally to the outside, and to be very cautious when applying it to the inside.
But on March 7, the first day it arrived, the word "liberal" was not yet in my vocabulary. I put a couple drops on my chin, and spread it down to a microscopic thinness, and that's the only time I used it the whole day. The above photo was taken about 5 hours after that mini-dose, had already made enough of a difference around the edges that the doctor decided not to give me any further antibiotics, unless the rash began to deteriorate again.
By Friday morning, 24 hours after the first serious application, the oozing had stopped entirely, and all but the deepest sores had healed over. For the first time, I began to suspect that I might actually look normal again. Someday.
Do you still remember how I looked after 6 days of Keflex? This is after only FIVE days of topical colloidal silver.
I decided to try a little experiment. Since I was still applying the ointment and the colloidal silver at the same time, I decided to stop applying the silver for a few days and see what happened.
