It can be used to treat skin conditions It’s used to prevent and treat baby rashes hello baby powder It can be found in dandruff shampoos It’s in calamine creams It can be found in anti septic ointments You shouldn’t inhale it, use a facial mask when handling it It’s not for internal use Keep it away from children When used on skin, it creates a protective barrier for external element 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.
