  3. It can be found in dandruff shampoos
  4. It’s in calamine creams
  5. It can be found in anti septic ointments

  7. It’s not for internal use

So I’m not going to go deeper into Zinc Oxide, because it would involve a Chem 101 class for those who are interested.  These are just the quick and dirty details.  For more information, look up scholarly articles on Zinc Oxide.  There are a lot of resources and it’s used for all kinds of medical treatments.
