I've heard of one...its called Margarite Cosmetic's Zinc Cream. I never tried it, but just thought I'd tell you. I think you can only get it from the net. I'm also looking for some zinc cream & if anyone can tell me where I can find some (other then the internet) I'd be really happy. All I can find is zinc cream for baby diaper rash. Should I use it anyways? Thanks

What about Calamine Lotion? That product contains zinc oxide.

hey . i've also noticed that only diaper rash creams contain zinc (around 15% or so ) ...however they are really greasy and will make you very oily.the good thing is that they make the red marks go away , but they clog pores.

I can recommend a great vitamin suppliment that can be taken - Niafol tablets (or Nicatinamide in it's brand name). This is Zinc/Folic Acid/Nicatinamide (b vitamins) all in one and is specially formulated for acne sufferers. It's by prescription only, but without insurance it runs about $25 a bottle for 60 tablets, with insurance it's about $10. I take 2 tablets a day....adults with acne are known to be deficient in b viamins and zinc...this vitamin can help give anti angrogen properites and detere inflammatory acne.
