The origins of Paul's blue skin.

Paul says that he doesn't believe his daily silver drink is what made him blue. "I didn't turn blue until I started putting it on my face," he says.

While Paul was taking care of his elderly parents and his father was nearing the end of his life, Paul says he was extremely stressed. "I developed the most unbelievable case of dermatitis you've probably ever seen. My skin was peeling off of my face in ribbons. I looked like a mummy coming unwrapped," he says. "And where the skin pieces separated, I was developing fistula—the skin was cracking."

Paul says he'd previously dabbed a little bit of colloidal silver on cat scratches and marveled at the effect. So he started applying silver all over his damaged skin.

From there, Paul says his skin began a gradual change over two to three months from fair white to blue. "It was so gradual, nobody noticed," he says. "It wasn't until a friend came by who hadn't seen me in a while. … He said, 'What have you got on your face?' [I said,] 'I don't have anything on my face.' And he said, 'It looks like you've got camouflage makeup on or something. You better come here.'" Paul stood in front of the mirror with his friend and realized his unbelievable transformation.
