Zinc Oxide Dosage

General Dosage Information

Some considerations for people taking zinc oxide include the following:
 
  • Zinc oxide comes in oral form (such as tablets) or in the form of skin cream, ointment, or paste. When applied to the skin, it leaves an opaque white residue.
     
  • Make sure to follow the instructions for your particular zinc oxide skin product. Generally, it is best to apply the skin products in a thick, generous layer (especially when used for treating diaper rash). For most uses on the skin, it is best to apply zinc oxide often.
     
  • When taking it by mouth, make sure to follow the dosing recommendations for your particular product.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your zinc oxide dosage, please talk to your healthcare provider.
