High solutions (100 parts per million or above) may carry an increased risk of side effects, including a condition called argyria, in which the skin darkens or turns blue.
It continued to be used in some over-the-counter medicines until 1999, when the FDA banned it because it causes argyria, which is a result of the silver reacting with light the same way it does in photography.

In 1996, a woman named Rosemary told a Canadian reporter what it's like to have argyria.
Since most of us don't want a permanent skin color change, recommended dosages of nano-sized whole silver products at low parts (30 or below) per million, will not produce argyria, scientists say.
Further, a recent study indicates that argyria can only result from the consumption of ionic forms of silver, not from metallic silver or metallic silver nano-particle products.
