Man turns blue after using silver extract for skin treatment

An Oregon native's face turns blue after rubbing colloidal silver to treat skin problems.

Man turns blue after using silver extract for skin treatment A 57-year-old Oregon man has turned the "feeling blue" clich√© to the real deal. The story goes: Paul Karason from Oregon developed a bad case of dermatitis, caused by stress and to battle the problem he started drinking a substance called colloidal silver. This product is made by electrorefining - extracting the silver from metal using electricity. But the problems of the poor man turning blue did not start until he decided to rub the solution on his face, directly on the skin. The "blue man" was quoted: "The change was so gradual that I didn't perceive it and other people around me likewise. It wasn't until a friend I hadn't seen in several months came by my parents' place to see me and he asked me "What did you do?"" Following the incident, Paul Karason has moved to California in hopes of finding acceptance. "I do tend to avoid public places as much as I can," he said.

 You can even watch the CNN report of the man turning blue on YouTube. Here is the video:
