Treating Painful Bug Bites with Colloidal Silver
Whether you’re hiking through the outdoors, or out picking food in your garden, or simply rummaging around in your yard, there’s a good chance at some point you’ll get bitten by bugs.
Mosquitoes, ants, spiders, ticks, bees, wasps, scorpions – you name it – sooner or later you’re bound to experience a nasty bug bite and the resulting pain, inflammation and incessant itching.
Thankfully, applying colloidal silver can dramatically ease the pain, itch, redness and inflammation of bug bites and will help accelerate the healing process while simultaneously helping prevent infection from setting in. That’s because colloidal silver is not just an all-natural infection-fighter, but also a natural pain-relieving anti-inflammatory that soothes and heals skin problems with relative ease.
Here’s what you need to know…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
You can expect dramatic and quick relief from bug bites simply by spraying 10 ppm strength colloidal silver directly onto the bites and allowing it to air dry.
Or, you can simply moisten a cotton ball with colloidal silver and place it on the bite, then cover it with a bandage to keep it in place, changing it out several times a day as the cotton ball loses its moisture.
Better yet is to use a good, high-quality colloidal silver gel or cream directly on the bite (see Germ-Busting Colloidal Silver Gels and Creams).
Or, for seriously problematic bites, you can mix some colloidal silver with bentonite clay powder to make a poultice. After applying the poultice to the bug bite, the clay will help draw any poison out, and the silver will help heal the skin irritation and inflammation, and prevent infection from setting in. (See video demonstrations of how to make your own colloidal silver poultice and how to make your own colloidal silver gel.)
Sand Fly Bites
As an experienced colloidal silver user recently wrote to say about his friend who was severely bitten by sand flies:
“Eddy, a friend, came over one evening. He was in considerable distress with bites from sand flies to his hands and arms. He had been out the evening before doing some photography on the beach. His arms and hands were red and swollen from the bites. Apparently the bites are worse than bee stings and can take a couple of weeks to recover from!!!
I immediately soaked some ‘cotton wool’ with the micro-particle colloidal silver and applied it to the red areas. After a short time the stinging sensation subsided. I gave him some more colloidal silver to take home. He applied cotton wool soaked in the colloidal silver to the bites, using surgical tape to adhere it overnight.
In the morning the swollen areas had subsided and the redness and swelling was gone. He was truly impressed and very grateful for the immense relief. This may be one more application that colloidal silver can help, in terms of relieving great discomfort and suffering.”
– Kathyn, Singapore
Another colloidal silver user wrote in to say:
“I have since used colloidal silver on tick bites. After making the ticks back out with dish soap, I applied silver directly on the bites (2 ticks) and the bumps disappeared after 2 applications of the silver.”
– (Mike T., Idaho)
This gentleman was sure happy to have plenty of colloidal silver on hand when his son was bit on the legs, repeatedly, by some fire ants:
“My 9 year old son is very sensitive to ant bites. He was playing outside and didn’t realize he was on a bed of fire ants. He ended up with 12 bites on his legs, each of which flared up to the size of dimes.
I immediately sprayed some 10 ppm colloidal silver on the bites and allowed it to air dry. Within 15 or 20 minutes he was no longer fussing from the itching and burning.
But the bites still looked inflamed and seemed to grow redder. So I broke out some colloidal silver gel and slathered it onto the bites.
The look of added relief on his face when I applied the silver gel was priceless. It really does work fast. And it only needs to be applied to the bites three or four times in the course of a day for real healing to begin. Within two days he was practically back to normal.”
– Ryan P., Detroit, MI
And another colloidal silver user wrote in to explain how effective she found colloidal silver to be against mosquito bites. She stated:
“I am a mosquito magnet. My husband and I go places and he gets no bites, but I get LOTS. So I carry a little bottle of colloidal silver in my pocket and put a drop of it onto the bites. Most never itch again. If some continue to itch, I give it 5 or 10 minutes and apply another dab of colloidal silver water.
Sometimes a bite will begin to itch again the next day and I simply dab on a little more colloidal silver water. I used to scratch the mosquito bites until they scabbed and left marks for weeks. I never have a problem, now.”
– M.H., Schnel
A woman whose mom experienced multiple spider bites wrote in to say, “My Mom had several spider bites on her legs last summer..My sister-in-law soaked cotton balls in the *silver*, taped it to her legs where the bites were…and within 3 days she was all healed up!!!”
And a colloidal silver user also found that it works well for treating wasp bites. She wrote:
“A few days ago I was attacked by a nest of wasps. I was bit 4 times. In the past, I have ended up in the ER over bites.
But, all evening long I compressed the wasp bites by soaking some cotton balls in colloidal silver and then taping the wet cotton balls directly over the bite sites. I changed them out every hour or so with freshly soaked cotton balls.
I also took 1 tbsp of colloidal silver, orally, directly after the attack, and another tbsp before bed. And guess what? No welts, no balloon arms – barely noticeable the next day!”
Finally, a nice lady wrote in to explain how she used colloidal silver on a scorpion sting. She stated:
“I was barefoot and stepped on the scorpion in the dark. When I got the light on it was standing facing me with its tail raised as if to dare me to try that again. I was able to capture it and looked it up on the internet, to find a photo identifying it as the most dangerous scorpion in Arizona and recommendation to go to the ER.
Pain, swelling and redness at the bite site began to spread. But at that particular time I was getting ready to move and had turned off my phone and sold the car. So, having no way to get to emergency care, I put colloidal silver in a dish big enough to fit my toes in, settled down to Facebook, and sat the rest of the night with the front part of my foot dangled in the colloidal silver.
Just as a precaution, I emptied the dish twice during the night and refilled it with fresh silver. By morning the spreading pain, swelling and redness was gone. The sting continued healing on its own with no further treatment and did not leave a scar.”
So there you have it. If you get a scorpion sting and you’ve got no way to get to an emergency care facility, this nifty little idea might buy you the time you need, or even save you from an evening of growing pain and inflammation.
Finally, there’s spider bites. A friend wrote:
“When I was visiting the Caribbean some years back, during the off season, our room in the highly rated hotel we stayed at was full of tiny spiders. Apparently, when guests are infrequent, the rooms aren’t cleaned as often, and the spiders move in.
The little critters didn’t bother my wife, for some reason. But they sure liked me. I’d wake up in the morning with spider bites from my ankles to my knees. It was awful, because while they were very small bites, they turned bright red and itched like crazy.
So I broke out the colloidal silver we’d brought, and began spraying it on the spider bites whenever they’d start to itch, allowing it to air dry before dressing.
And not only was the relief immediate, but it was fairly long-lasting, as well – often, the itching didn’t start again for four or five hours. And when it did, I simply repeated the process.
Most importantly, recent anecdotal accounts demonstrate that colloidal silver can help heal even serious spider bites, such as those from Brown Recluse Spiders.
For many victims of this potentially deadly spider, the skin itself begins to necrotize, meaning it begins to rot right on your body. Learn how experienced colloidal silver users have solved the problem and healed their Brown Recluse Spider bites, here: Colloidal Silver and Spider Bites
Make Your Own Colloidal Silver for Pennies
As you can see, colloidal silver works amazingly well for bug bites of all sorts – even serious spider and scorpion bites.
And thankfully, colloidal silver is not hard to find. In fact, it can be purchased at just about any local health food store, or through a number of online sources including Amazon.com.
However, it’s quite literally one of the most expensive and heavily marked-up nutritional supplements in existence.
Health food store owners, for example, often charge as much as $20-$30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle. Yet the cost to manufacture four ounces of colloidal silver is about 12 cents. Yes, I said twelve cents.
Of course, people are willing to pay through the nose for colloidal silver, since it’s safe and natural, and works so well against germs, mold, fungus, and even viruses.
But thankfully, there’s no need to pay such exorbitant prices for colloidal silver, when you can make your own, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for just a few pennies per quart.
Yes, you can make it yourself for its actual cost, and altogether skip the sky-high mark-ups charged by health food stores!
If you’re interested in learning how to make your own high-quality colloidal silver at home, for about 36 cents a quart, here are some additional short articles you might want to take a look at:
