There's a woman whose skin has turned to silver.

An American woman whose skin turned silver after using nose drops is warning people of the dangers of medicines containing the metal.

Rosemary Jacobs, 71, has lived with the irreversible skin condition argyria for 60 years and it has blighted her life.

The retired primary school teacher's skin started to turn silver when she began using nasal drops containing colloidal silver (CS) at the age of 11.

Four years later, a skin biopsy revealed silver particles bound deep beneath her skin and she was diagnosed with argyria.
Argyria is a condition caused by exposure to chemical forms of the element silver.

It causes the skin to become blue or bluish-grey coloured and develops because silver accumulates in the body over time. It is thought to be irreversible.
