From what I understand so far,
this is argyria. Excessive deposits of silver on the skin.
Just like eating excess vegetables with carotenoids can make you orange(although naturally protected from the Sun's UV light).
Users of colloidal silver, better called Ionic Silver claim you can avoid this by using distilled water while making it.
However, the moment a person drinks it, it can combine with stomach acid to produce silver salts, the very reaction being avoided, that is why they
emphasize holding under the tongue for as long as possible to absorb.
This guy made his Ionic Silver with water mixed with salt to increase conductivity and speed the process.
True "Colloidal Silver" is one like Mesosilver or Utopia Silver.
It contains the full metal particles often smaller in nanometers than ionic, avoiding the reactions ionic silver suffer.
It is also not for the home user because it is very expensive to make.
Both are useful. Ionic is used for skin wounds and most infections. Colloidal is good to more resistant infections by smaller viruses ionic can't
