First let me start off by saying the product was a life saver for me! I had 3 nasty canker stores under my tongue which made it very painful to talk, eat, drink, and kept me awake at night. I was desperate and willing to try anything – and this worked for me! However, this product must be used properly and responsibly. Be aware that what you are doing is using a toxic substance to inflict an intentional chemical burn, in an attempt to cauterize the wound(s) in your mouth. I only used this after several days of rinsing with salt water did not seem to be helping. Also, be aware that you do not want to get this anywhere except the intended areas. So be careful when handling these, and keep away from your skin, eyes, children, etc. The steps I followed (compiled from various other reviews) are as follows:
Canker sore treatment that worked for me:
1. Depending on how well lit your “working area” is, a flashlight may be helpful to shine into your mouth. You will also need a mirror. A friend may also be desirable to hold the flashlight. Have a freezer size zip lock bag or some other safe way to dispose of the silver nitrate safely immediately after use.
2. Prepare two glasses of water, one large for rinsing your mouth, one smaller glass for dipping the silver nitrate.
3. Study your mouth, and know your game plan.
4. If possible, use a cloth to dry the area(s) you plan to treat. ( I did my best here, but the area was still quite wet)
5. Open the tube wearing rubber gloves, remove a stick, and dip the end with the bulb into the small glass of water. Then, dump that glass of water down the drain.
6. Using the mirror (and also flashlight if needed) apply the tip of the silver nitrate to the sore(s) for about 5 seconds on each sore (it will sting).

Seems to be a fine product. The sticks all arrived intact with non of the disintegration of the silver nitrate tip that I have seen on occasion. Althoug seldom required, they are about the most efficient way of managing an acute kanker sore of the mouth and some other sites of granulating inflammatory tissues.

I dip the end of the stick in water and press on the canker sore for about 5-10 seconds. It doesn't even hurt! only stings a little. It turns the skin around the sore gray for a day or two. The sore is cauterized instantly.

This product saved my life! I have been dealing with chronic mouth ulcers for over 7 years and have seen 3 different doctors about them. All they would give me was lidocaine, which would only numb the sore temporarily (5 min) but not heal it. This is just what I needed- something that would physically change the sore instead of numb it.

My quality of life is so much better. I get multiple sores at once- the most I had was 7 at one time. (The doctor said it was from stress...) I would not eat for days. It hurt to smile, talk, drink water... I overdosed on lidocaine and got really sick and missed work. Never again!
I still get the sores- I have had 21 in the last 3 months, including a MONSTER sore that didn't heal for 2 weeks, and left a scar. I wish I had the silver nitrate then!

CAUTION: This stains! If your saliva gets on your lip after using this it will make a black spot that will last 1-2 days. Same for teeth. What I do is hold a tissue in between my lips for awhile after using.

Another thing to be aware of is the potential for Argyria (skin permanently turns gray from silver in the body) ...I don't know if that could happen by using this. Anyone know???

I like these. I have many skin tag moles that I remove but they bleed for quite awhile. These help on that.

I would be wary purchasing an item from this seller. The sticks that I received had little or no nitrate on the stick. You can tell if there is adequate nitrate when the skin discolors to a dark brown/black. When using these sticks it turned the skin a very pale gray/white which indicated potassium but not silver nitrate. I am not surprised that they did not work for a previous reviewer. I emailed the company about the problem and they acted surprised and did not offer to replace the item nor did they discuss any refund. I shipped back the item over five weeks ago and have not received a refund or any communication from them. I will not be buying from this seller again.

It worked great for cauterizing over-granulated tissue. Note: use with caution...too much use at one time causes a blueish grey streak under the skin of an open wound. But don't worry, in a few weeks, the streak will rise to the surface of the skin and peel off like dried glue. I used the silver nitrate on two different open wounds on my hubby's foot. The first wound, about the size of a dime that had over-granulated tissue protruding from it, is now gone after three weeks and only two applications of the silver nitrate to level the tissue to the surface. The second and much larger wound, about the size of a plum, is now about the size of a knickel and is continuing to show signs of new skin around the perimeter of the wound and getting smaller with every dressing change. It has been a 6 month battle to get these wounds to heel with no visible signs of healing until I discovered and used the Silver Nitrate Applicators. I only wished I had found this product sooner. I would recommend this product to anyone who is dealing with cronic open wounds that refuse to heal. I'm not sure who will be reading my review or even if it will be shared with the public, but I hope the readers of this review are smart enough to make this review extremely public. I was desparate for any help from anyone to no avail. The doctors all said infection had reached the bone and our only option was to amputate. I discovered this product knowing that it couldn't make things worse and used it. I really wished I had found it sooner! It's just a shame that my husband had to suffer for such a long time and then be told to amputate. Thank god he had the faith in me that I had lost in myself. Please...let this review be known to any and all who need it...! If you would like to confirm any of my statements or have any further questions, you can contact me at "151Dorothy@msn.com". Your questions are welcome. Thank you.
