Calmoseptine - Healing Ointment is an ointment that helps heal and prevent skin irritations and promotes healing for a variety of symptoms. Originally developed by a pharmacist for use as a diaper rash ointment for infants, this healing cream is used for many ailments today. Calmoseptine helps to prevent and heal skin irritations from urine, diarrhea, perspiration, fistula drainage, feeding tube site leakage, wound drainage (peri-wound skin), diaper rash, lymphedema, venous stasis conditions, stage 1 pressure ulcers, skin folds, and other moist areas subject to fungal infections. It can also be used for eczema, psoriasis, poison ivy, poison oak, dermatitis, minor burns, cuts, scrapes, itches, and even minor bug bites.
