Man turns blue By Duncan Hooper Last Updated: 6:23pm GMT 20/12/2007 An American man's attempts to cure an irritating skin condition backfired when his face turned blue. Eiffel 65: Blue No more world records after 2060 Maths monkeys give students close race Fair-skinned Paul Karason developed dermatitis as a result of stress 14 years ago and decided to treat it using silver extract. Paul Karason's says he has moved states and avoids public places The substance is usually consumed orally but Mr Karason also decided to rub it into his peeling skin to accelerate the effects. According to the 57-year-old, the effect began so gradually that neither he nor he friends noticed the change at first. He told US television that he is now so embarrassed about his condition that he has moved states and seeks to avoid public places. Proponents say that colloidal silver, the substance Mr Karason says is responsible for his changing hue, can help boost the immune system and help prevent diseases. It has even been touted as a treatment for AIDS and cancer. However, the US Food and Drug Administration has rejected most of these claims. The FDA notes that use of colloidial silver can cause a condition known as argyria, an irreversible discolouration of the skin.
