Silver Nitrate 2% Solution
Silver Nitrate 1% Cream

Silver nitrate has been used for many years to treat wounds and warts. It is an effective antimicrobial and in high concentrations it can cauterize wounds. When applied topically it has been shown to be effective at treating foot ulcers, which present in some diabetic patients. Silver has been used for centuries for its antimicrobial properties and continues to be used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities today. Silver nitrate cream and solution has low toxicity and can provide broad-spectrum protection for wounds.

Silver Nitrate Uses

Diabetic foot ulcers: About 1 out of 10 patients with diabetes will develop foot ulcers at some point in their life. Topically applied silver nitrate solution or cream can eliminate bacteria in diabetic foot ulcers.

Warts: Sometimes a dry stick with a high concentration of silver nitrate is used for warts. When the stick gets wet and is placed on the wart, it cauterizes the wart to speed healing.

Wounds: Until the development of antibiotics, silver was frequently used as an antimicrobial in hospital settings. It continues to be used due to its broad-spectrum activity, low toxicity, and the lower risk of developing resistance compared to antibiotics.

A silver nitrate solution or cream from our compounding pharmacy can be made in a customized dosage for a variety of applications.
