Zincoxide

Were you looking for information about Zinc Oxide? Zincoxide is a common misspelling of zinc oxide.
 
As an essential mineral found in almost all cells of the human body, zinc oxide may be used in several supplements. It is also commonly found in many non-prescription medicines, including diaper rash creams and sunscreens. There is one prescription medication using zinc oxide that is approved for treating diaper rash. The chemical compound comes in oral form (such as tablets) or in the form of skin cream, ointment, or paste. Although side effects are unlikely when these products are used properly, possible problems may include allergic reactions and skin reactions (when used on the skin).
