Even though I live in the tropics I often caught a flu. When I got wet in a rain and I could not change my shirt and dry my hair, inevitably I had a stuffed nose the next day, sometimes even with fever. Then some years ago I came across 'Colloidal Silver' [CS] on the internet. I ordered from US a water distiller and a colloidal silver maker. Since then no more flu. When I get wet now in a rain I just take a sip of CS, repeat this every 2-3 hours. What happens is when the flu virus attacks I have to sneeze, which is proof for its presence, I drink CS this is the end of the story. They say that CS kills more than 600 different germs, including fungi. I also use CS externally. That's how I got rid of my dandruff and fungus on my chest. BTW it also works like magic on insect bites, the itching stops almost immediately.
Well, let's see if I can describe this without being too unladylike. I had some kind of terrible itching "down there" which I think first started out as the result of an abrasion that wasn't healing properly, and then got worse because of a reaction to the ultra cheap toilet paper at work. This was getting worse over the course of several weeks.
I got some relief from colloidal silver applied topically. I did that for a couple of days and it was helping. Then I mixed some colloidal silver and some tea tree oil with some aloe vera gel, and applied that, it was way too strong, but even though it had a warm sensation and I wanted to rinse most of it off right away it gave immediate and lasting relief from the itching. The next day I took some of the too-strong mixture and diluted it in some unscented lotion (Nature's Gate brand, very mild). I have been using that for a couple of days after showering and it is amazing how effective it is. No more itching and everything is healing nicely. Worked great. Hope this helps someone, I sure love this web site, trying to tell others about it too. Thanks!
