How to Use the Silver Nitrate Applicator
Use one drop of water, as it is sufficient enough to treat two square inches of the tissue. Place a single drop of water, or more if required, on a clean, non-absorbent surface. Moisten the applicator tip with sterile, distilled water, and apply the silver nitrate to the affected area by holding, rubbing, or rotating the tip along the affected tissue.
Gently stir the tip of a pencil or applicator in the drop of water for 20 to 30 seconds. The strength of the action is controlled by the dilution with distilled water. One silver nitrate applicator is generally enough for each application.
Note: Silver salts stain tissue black due to deposition of reducing silver. The stain gradually disappears within a period of 2 weeks.
