Transdermal zinc cream...

Postby jen78fl » Sat Oct 31, 2009 11:00 pm

Hi all. For those of you using zinc cream, I am curious to know which one you use. I was looking at this one..

Does this seem good? It only provides 22 mg of zinc , not 100 mg right?

We have used the Ourkids Zincsulfate with good results. I no longer have to give it everyday and it took about 3 weeks of using it then I was able to cut back. Make sure whatever you buy doesn't have a formaldehyde releasing preservative. Ourkids doesn't have it.

we use that one, too. Made by Kirkman's so you can get it at thier website as well. Only 22mg but you can use it twice per day in addition to the zinc you give my mouth. We use the magnesium cream too and it makes a GREAT hand softener :)

Jadensmom - Do you use oral zinc with this or use this alone? We can't seem to find the right Zinc supplement, nothing is helping with chewing on fingers, drooling, etc. and recently a bit of grinding.
