"Silver dressings are standard care for children's burn wounds to reduce bacterial infection while silicone dressings ameliorate the scarring after deep burn injuries," said Cuttle. "Little is known of how deeply their components penetrate the skin or how much silver and silicon remain behind in the skin."

Gene identified for immune system reset after infection
Medical News Today
When pathogenic bacteria, like Salmonella or Staphylococcus, invade a host, the host organism should respond by going into a state of high alert, altering its metabolism to defend against the attack.
