    I know I've always been a proponent of colloidal silver but I've found that there are a few things that can be better treated (quicker) with a commercial, over the counter anti-fungal cream. Might be a good idea to stock up on some tinactin, latrimin, etc.

    It might be tough to find some of this stuff in the future.

    In our household, we've always used plain white vinegar as our go-to 'medicine' for anti-fungal needs.

    Oil of oregano, used it for many years.. keep it away from sensitive body parts, it's a very hot oil

    Wild Oregano Oil

    Cured my candida overgrowth that was giving me incapacitating headaches.. you add it to hot tea or water and sniff the vapors..burn, baby burn! Add cream/milk to dilute before you drink the tea. It also will burn warts and all other abnormal skin right off your body with repeat applications

    Oh, one more thing.. you can easily grow the perennials yourself and cold press them for the oil.. we have a large patch and it even tries to spread. Big bee attractant

    I buy my oregano oil (and all my essential oils too) from Ananda Apothecary since they are the only supplier I have trusted due to the fact that I know they are trustworthy ;) There's a lot of scammers out there. Plus, if I am not mistaken - it's almost impossible to find 100% oregano oil which hasn't been diluted by carrier oils, and Ananda has that. No gimmicks, just pure oil. You have to dilute it yourself.

    I have tea tree oil on hand as well, but I did some research when Joxer(my cat) got attacked recently, it apparently is bad for cats and small dogs.

    It's OK for topical shampoo for most of them, it's very good for skin conditions. Works great on our Rotties

    First time Collodial ever stung on an open sore

    Had a festering pimple by my naval that wouldn't heal. After a month
    of neosporin, and bactrin, even tolnaftate, and that kind of stuff, I grabbed the collodial silver and put a couple drops on it. It stung a little when I did that. Surprised me.

    Darned thing had a scab the next day, first time ever it ever scabbed good.
    Now I have a purple scar about the size of an M&M, but no more fester. Took less than 3 days to get it under control after messing around for a mont
    Wonder if I had a brush with one of those flesh eating bugs you hear about. Started out smaller than a pin head and ended up way larger. Damnedest thing I ever had.

    Sure glad I had that silver.
