I LOVE silver cream and silver solution. Silver is a mineral. The ions of silver are microscopic little particles that can invade and attack as well as promote healing. It helps so much with burns, wounds and speeds skin healing. It doesn't sting, rubs right in and has no smell. You can buy on Amazon or if you are local to me we carry it at my office. I personally use it instead of neosporin when appropriate.
Let's talk about Neosporin for a minute. It is a triple antibiotic cream/ointment. Did you hear about all the antibiotic resistant bacteria out there? Use caution when applying or using antibiotics for every little cut and scrape. I am NOT suggesting you completely ignore all wounds however I AM suggesting you might not need to slather every one of them in antibiotic cream immediately. Neosporin is the 3 antibiotics, cocoa butter, cottonseed oil (likely GMO), olive oil, sodium pyruvate, vit E and white petroleum (crude oil). It says on it's package: "Every cut every time". NO THANK YOU! You can give the body a chance to heal itself you know.
Interestingly enough, natural, raw, unfiltered honey is making a come back as a soothing treatment for skin irritations. Real honey from a real bee. The kind you see at a farmer's market. People used to slather that on skin irritations then the 20th century hit and it fell by the wayside. Well, now in our antibiotic resistant world people are turning to previous methods of healing. Interesting....
I really suggest trying silver cream instead for minor irritations. Skinned knees, minor burns, blisters, scratches, scrapes, boo boos, acne, wounds and rashes. To take it to another level, I will stir in a few drops of the essential oils tea tree, lavender and either frankincense or geranium. Make a little jar and rub on multiple times per day. You can cover in a bandaid when needed. Simple, natural healing without toxic chemicals or lab manufactured and altered products!
