Silverol and G6PD

  1. 0 I was taught and always understood that you cant use Silverol or any silver preparation on a patient with G6PD deficiency. I now have a client with a burn who has G6PD deficiency. The doctor insists on using Silverol even though I have shown him that it is contraindicated. Our medical director has said that its no big deal and can safely be used. Any experience with using Silverol on a patient with G6PD deficiency?
