Not a good idea.
Silver is a toxic metal and has caused some problems in older children
and adults when used to treat burns
For that reason silver sulfadiazine
is no longer a favored agent. Babies have thinner skin that absorbs chemicals more readily, especially if ti's irritated or raw. So stick with the usual diaper rash
products. Check with your pediatrician if the rash is severe or not clearing up.
