What is this medication?

CALMOSEPTINE (Menthol/Zinc Oxide)
Protectant, Topical

CALMOSEPTINE ointment is indicated for use as a protective barrier; diaper rash, feeding tube site leakage, wound drainage, minor cuts and scrapes, minor burns and irradiated skin, fistulas, moisture in skin folds, partial-thickness wounds, hemorrhoids and anal fissures.

How does this medication work? 

Menthol and zinc oxide are combined together to form a protective barrier to prevent irritation and help with healing.  Menthol is a counter-irritant that dilates blood vessels, causing a sensation of coldness to help relieve itching.  Zinc oxide is a mild astringent with weak antiseptic properties.

How should I take this medication? 

Topical: Apply a thin layer to the affected areas 2 to 4 times daily as needed.

How to Take: For external use only; avoid contact with eyes. Cleanse the affected area gently with mild cleanser prior to use and allow to air dry or pat dry. Do not have to completely remove before reapplication.
