Avatar n tn If the luting agent is temporary cement, which may contain zinc oxide eugenol, few pateints are allergic to. If the swelling is caused by above causes, the swelling tends to subside within 48-72 hours. if the swelling is caused by infection, investigation of the source of infection is warrented. Going back to her dentist to have a through evaluation is advised.

Avatar n tn Unfortunately many companies are putting lithium oxide in their ceramics to strengthen them. I found that BruxZir is pure zirconium oxide and has no lithium oxide.
Avatar m tn You can try using a barrier cream under your arms and breast (like desiden but any that have the zinc oxide in them). Also you may try taking an over the counter allergy medication like zyrtec (generic name cetrizine) 1 per day to help with the rash. I hope this helps.

Avatar f tn ve read online about using zinc oxide cream on the bumps to clear them up and we have been using a diaper rash cream that is 40% zinc oxide. Just wondering if anyone has used this treatment and if it was successful and how long it took to clear the bumps.
Avatar f tn Posted in response to a similar thread so may be useful Have had these very itchy bumps on the upper surface of the foot, ankle and lower calf. Usually only in the winter months, but the most unusual symptom (along with some of the other posts) is that the itching occurs at night and has woken me on occasions. Sometimes the scratching will severe and cause surface abrasions. Also as biged44 describes, when the bumps stop itching the bumps fade to dark spots.
Avatar f tn This is not normal. I would recommend having your physician assess you.
Avatar m tn Barrier cremes containing zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to be applied on the skin is a way.
Avatar f tn So, as of a couple years ago I am scrubbing my hands for cases more often. I was allergy tested by a dermatologist and told I was allergic to Carbomate and Thiuram. These are chemical acclerators found in gloves to speed up the production process. In addition, being allergic to those chemicals, means I am sensitive to rubber products, fragrances, soaps, cosmetics, and many other things. I go to a allergist-nutrionist to help clear me of the allergies.

Avatar f tn I stopped having sex with my wife for awile until it cleared up. During that time i was using zinc oxide cream, bought all 100% cotton boxers, used very mild soap and rinsed well in the shower. Oh and by the way i am circumsised. It almost was completley cleared so i assumed it wasnt something worse from my past or whatever, i have ocd so i constantly stressed about it and constantly examine my penis which i am sure aggravated it at times.
176741 tn?1295233989 ve read that I should look for sunscreens using zinc oxide for future use. Have any of you dealt with this before? Rash is now on day 7...should I be doing something special to treat it?
Avatar m tn This is the #1 used diaper rash cream for babies for a reason. The main ingredient is Zinc Oxide, at 40%, which is a skin protectant, and also works for deodorizing and even is antibacterial. If you want to avoid the fragrance that Desitin has, you may be able to just buy zinc oxide powder online (used by people that make their own lotions and sunscreens), but I have not tried this.
Avatar m tn Avoid deodorant / cosmetics. You can also use a barrier cream with zinc oxide paste applied directly to wet skin after bathing. If the symptoms persist then it will be best to get it evaluated from a gynecologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
