I have removed Silver Nitrate on my hands by first treating the stain with Iodine solution then flushing the area with Sodium Thiosulfate solution (5% ?) then washing my hands thoroughly with soap and water. It removed the Silver Nitrate. This was a trick that one of my instructors used while I was in school. She got the idea from one of the silver stains that we were doing (Reticulin, I think). I don't know if how it will work on your face or if it will irritate the delicate skin but I think that I would try it anyway just to get rid of the black mark. 

Thanks for the laugh and my heart goes out to you.

After you stop laughing seriously I need some help here, apparently I got my
fingers in some silver nitrate yesterday and touched my face under my nose
over my lip and now I have black spots that won't come off.  I have done
this on my hands before but never on my face.  So far I have tried soaking a
cloth in hydrogen peroxide hoping to bleach it with no luck, I even tried
putting some gold chloride on it to see if I could "tone" it down, to no
avail.  Any ideas?  Make up only goes so far and lasts so long.
