The usage of silver for medicinal applications can date back to 450 BC, where it started as a tool used for wound care and gradually worked its way up to the 20th century where it acts as the sole material for medical instruments. Prior to the introduction of antibiotics, colloidal silver was used as a disinfectant and germicide. Colloidal Silver is a microscopic mixed substance of silver particles suspended in liquid. It was highly popular before the invention of antibiotics due to its natural antiseptic properties, versatility and the ease of use.
