Calamine lotion is a topical medication designed to help soothe and protect the skin when it becomes irritated. It is often used for treating symptoms associated with poison ivy infection and chicken pox. For
cases like this, calamine lotion can provide much needed relief for those suffering from the itch and irritation these infections bring. The lotion will not treat the problems, but it will alleviate the symptoms. Calamine lotion can also be used to relieve the itch caused by insect bites and some have even used it to soothe sunburns. It is also considered a mild antiseptic that can be used to help ward off other types of infections.
Calamine lotion utilizes a zinc oxide and iron oxide formula that dries the oozing and weeping yielded from the contact dermatitis and helps to relieve the itchy irritation. It appears as a pink, thick liquid lotion and is sold primarily as a generic product that you can get over the counter.
