I just read something disturbing.... silver nitrate is used to treat Steven-Johnsons Syndrome. Why? I remember working with silver nitrate in chem class and it was not fun at all. The smell, and it hurt if you spilled it on your skin. Not really at first but in just a while it would tingle and itch.
Now granted I'm sensitive to chemicals.... but, why? Is it diluted? or did i work with another type of silver nitrate? Why would we use something like this to treat a wound?
Please shed some light!!
