    Topical Zinc?

    Has anyone tried topical zinc for acne? If so what was the result? Thanks.

    Re: Topical Zinc?

    I have some zinc oxide cream, the stuff that is usually used as sunblock on yer nose (lifeguards usually wear it)... I wouldn't recommend using it as it's really greasy/oily and would probably just clog your pores even more. and it doesn't wash off easily and doesn't disappear into the skin. I don't know about any other topical zinc ointments..
