We have been asked about the toe nail fungus colloidal silver cure. Colloidal Silver is nothing more than a small amount of silver molecules suspended in water. Patients wonder if colloidal silver can cure nail fungus, or is it just another home remedy that doesn’t work. Unfortunately, long-term use of Colloidal Silver can lead to argyria, a condition in which silver salts deposit in the skin, eyes, and internal organs, and the skin turns ashen-gray. When this cause and affect relationship became apparent, doctors stopped recommending colloidal silver, and reputable manufacturers stopped producing colloidal silver. This has not stopped other unscrupulous producers from marketing this dangerous substance as a miracle cure.

There is no toe nail fungus colloidal silver cure. Colloidal silver is dangerous. We will now discuss this in more detail. We will then go over the safe and effective treatment for nail fungus.

Colloidal silver safety

In 1996 there was a study of Colloidal Silver conducted by the Food and Drug Administration. Dr. Fung and Dr. Bowen conducted the study. The purpose of the study was to “weigh the risk versus benefit assessment of over-the-counter silver-containing products”. The study concluded “there was a lack of established effectiveness and potential toxicity of these products.”

As a result of this and several other studies, in 1999, the FDA banned the use of colloidal silver or silver salts in over-the-counter products. The rule applies to any nonprescription colloidal silver or silver salt product claimed to be effective in preventing or treating any disease. Silver products can still be sold as "dietary supplements" provided that no health claims are made for them.

Unfortunately, many companies have tried to take advantage of this "dietary supplements" clause. During 2000, the FDA issued warnings to more than 20 companies who’s Web sites were making illegal therapeutic claims for colloidal silver products.

Colloidal silver is dangerous, and we highly recommend you do not use it. There is no toe nail fungus colloidal silver cure. Fortunately, there are alternative treatments for nail fungus.

Nail fungus treatment

One of the biggest mistakes we see in nail fungus treatment is trying a home remedy for nail fungus. Many patients spend months trying treatments like vinegar, bleach, rubbing alcohol, listerine, hydrogen peroxide or toe nail fungus colloidal silver. Unfortunately except in rare cases, these home remedies don’t work. Some of them are also very dangerous. And while you are wasting time trying them, your fungus is getting worsen.

Many patients have asked if prescription medications are safe. The two most popular prescription medications are Sporanox capsules and Lamisil tablets. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health advisory in May 2001 concerning Sporanox (itraconazole) capsules and Lamisil (terbinafine hydrochloride) tablets for the treatment of nail fungus. The FDA concluded that there is strong evidence of congestive heart failure and hepatic adverse events with the administration of these therapies. Hepatic toxicity includes liver failure and death. Given the possible risks associated with both drugs, you need to look at better and safer alternatives.
