Mode of Use/Application

Prior to use, the applicator stick may be bent or shaped to allow easier access to the target area. The medicated end of the applicator should be moistened in clean water and applied to the affected tissue. One applicator is normally sufficient for each application. The strength of the action is controlled by the amount of water used to moisten the tip.
Silver nitrate, once dissolved in either body fluid or clean tap water (distilled or purified water can be used but are not necessary if tap water is clean and does not have a high salt content), is absorbed by epidermal tissue to a very shallow depth where it alters the pH of the environment surrounding the living cells, causing them to die. On unbroken skin, this is painless. This action can be stopped by adding saline solution, which neutralizes silver nitrate.
