PRECAUTION: Prolonged ingestion or absorption of silver compounds (organic or inorganic) whether originating industrially ortherapeutically leads to disposition of silver in connective tissues, producing a slate-blue discoloration of the skin known as argyria.This discoloration may also appear on mucous membranes such as the margins of gums. The sclera of the eye is also stained. The natureof the pigment is not definitely known, it may be metallic silver or oxide. This discoloration exists throughout life but does not cause anysystematic symptoms. While small patches may be removed, this method is so tedious and painful as to be impractical for large areas.
ACTION: Silver nitrate commonly employed as a caustic antiseptic and an astringent. Potassium nitrate has been used as a topicalantiseptic on mucous membranes. The degree of action depends upon the concentration employed and the period of time during whichthe compound is allowed to act. The silver nitrate is precipitated by chloride thus washing with a solution of sodium chloride can quicklystop the action of silver ions.
STORAGE: Store in the closed package at room temperature in a dry place and protected from light. Silver nitrate will turn black uponexposure to light, however this does not affect the product’s potency or utility.
