Description, Symptoms & Causes
The skin is the body’s largest organ. It serves as the first line of defence against infection. Therefore, a serious burn on the skin is one of the most traumatic injuries that the body can sustain.
There are three basic classifications of burns on the skin:
- First-degree burns affect only the outer layer of the skin, causing redness and sensitivity to the touch. Sunburn is usually a first-degree burn.
- Second-degree burns extend somewhat into underlying skin layers, and are characterised by redness, blistering and acute pain.
- In third-degree burns, the entire thickness of the skin and possibly underlying tissues, such as muscle, are destroyed. The skin may be red, or it may be white or yellowish, or leathery and black, There is usually little or no pain because the nerves in the skin are severely damaged.

Colloidal Silver For Burns Treatment
Silver seems to be the only anti-bacterial that works effectively as a burns treatment on without damaging the surrounding skin and flesh.
Research Found Silver Healed The Skin Faster
Silver was used extensively before digital cameras were developed.
Researchers found many years ago that men working in photographic laboratories healed faster than anyone else and with far less complications and secondary infection.
The higher concentrations of silver in their systems, the faster they healed.
The Pharmacists handbook, the Pharmacopoeia, reports that “Silver ions are known to be bactericidal”. This allows us to treat a burn wound from the inside and the outside.
As well as being anti-bacterial, Silverlab Liquid has been tested at Synexa Laboratories and found to be an EXCELLENT anti-inflammatory.
- Gently apply Silverlab Liqui-gel or Silverlab Healing Gel onto the skin.
- Don’t try to rub it in, make a layer about 3mm thick (1/8 inch thick).
More Serious Burns
- If the burn is more serious and has a bandage covering it, you can pour Silverlab Liquid directly onto the bandage – allowing it to soak through to the wound.
- There is no need to remove the bandage each time.
Third Degree Burns
- If you suspect a third-degree burn, see your physician at once or go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital.
- Do not attempt to treat the injury, do not remove clothing that is stuck to the burned area, and do not put ice or water on the burn.
- A third-degree burn requires professional treatment.
- Pour Silverlab Liquid over the burn, clothing and all. The liquid will help cool the flesh and might even help save a life.
- The doctor will most likely prescribe an ointment containing Silversulphurdiazine. This works in a similar way to the Healing Gel so there won’t be any interference or interaction with the alternative medication.
- Cool a first- or second-degree burn at once to reduce pain and swelling. Immerse the area in cool water or use cool compresses for a minimum of ten minutes. DO NOT use ice water or ice cubes. The best would be to cool it down with Silverlab Liquid.
- Hygiene is very important when dealing with all types of burn.
- Keep burn injuries elevated to minimize swelling and promote healing.
- Watch for signs of infection, odour, pus, or extreme redness in the area of the burn. Protect the injury from exposure to the sun.
- Drink plenty of fluids throughout the healing phase.
- Treat the burn from the outside with Silverlab Healing Gel, and from the inside by drinking large amounts of Silverlab Liquid.
Natural Health Tips For Burns Treatment – From Jan J Lategan
Burns Treatment in Kitchen
- Apply aloe jelly or Silverlab Healing Gel. Butter is an old home remedy, but should not be used. Like other oils and ointments it delays burn wound healing and thus increases the risk of subsequent infection.
