One very common challenge most eczema sufferers face is how to treat infected skin.
Oozing, weeping and inflamed skin are common symptoms of eczema skin which has been infected. Infected skin will tend to be itchy, and scratching it will further aggravate and cause further infection.
Studies found that people with severe eczema had larger bacterial populations of Staphylococcus Aureus on their skin. If you apply moisturisers on infected skin without treating it first, it may aggravate the infection.
How to treat infected eczema skin
Before moisturising, you should treat the infection first by washing it with a wound-friendly solution such as Hospigel, and then treating the infection with a silver-based gel.
Why silver? Silver has been used for centuries as an antimicrobial to kill bacteria, long before antibiotics were discovered. Bandages infused with silver are routinely used in hospitals, and topical medications with silver have been used for burns to treat infections.
One popular product that incorporates silver for its antibacterial properties, and favoured by eczema patients is Argasol™ Silver Gel Skin & Body Care.
This product is a gel form solution that uses nano-silver technology to fight against bacterial, fungal and virus infections. Using patented SilverSol® technology, many clinical studies have been done and show that it is highly effective for a wide range of wounds and infections.
How silver kills bacteria
SilverSol® Technology produces patented nanosilver particles suspended in a medium of highly purified water or gel for use as a revolutionary broad-spectrum anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal solution.
For any new treatment or ointment, it is important to find out the extent of studies done to ensure it is safe for the community.
According to the company’s findings & reports, SilverSol® Technology has been widely researched with more than 190 independent studies from more than 60 different private, U.S. government, military, as well as university labs.

Customer reviews of Argasol
Here are some user testimonials from Argasol’s official website:
Eczema outbreak caused by haze weather
“Speedy healing without using corticosteroids and antibiotics ONLY Argasol 24ppm skin gel and Argasol 30ppm oral supplement Time span – 4.5 days Application – 4 to 5 times daily liberally”
– Cheryl, June 2013
Healed in a matter of days
“I had a case of staph infection first on my neck and chest area, then on my leg. It took me weeks to get rid of. I kept applying Argasol Gel many times a day and it cleared faster than using the other stuff I tried to make it go away. Once I applied frequently the lesions healed in a matter of days. I also applied the gel on a very painful ulcer under my mouth during this episode. It took 2 days to clear unlike bonjela which didn’t help this time. To stop the infection from spreading, I used the gel as a hand sanitizer throughout the day. I’m very glad I didn’t have to take antibiotics or pay extra for a prescription to treat it–thanks to Argasol Silver!”
– Regina Xie
Pain went away overnight
“I burned myself while cooking dinner. The burn on my thumb had to be a second degree burn. I immediately put the gel on it and waited for about 30 min before applying again. The burn was stinging slightly. I applied another time before bed. In the morning the burn was barely visible and there was no pain.”
– Yue Wan Liu
