Calmoseptine® has been the topical ointment of choice for over 70 years. Whether you’re treating diaper rash, soothing an insect bite or addressing complications from incontinence, Calmoseptine cream brings deep relief to troubled skin.

Calmoseptine Moisture Barrier Ointment protects against moisture and helps heal skin irritations. Those who need skin protection or who have one of the following conditions will benefit from Calmoseptine Ointment:

• Impaired skin integrity related to urinary and fecal incontinence
• Feeding tube site leakage
• Fecal or vaginal fistula drainage
• Moisture such as perspiration
• Diaper dermatitis
• Minor scrapes and burns

This ointment also temporarily relieves discomfort and itching, so you can use Calmoseptine for poison ivy and other minor skin irritations.

Benefits of Calmoseptine® Ointment Ingredients
• Provides a physical moisture barrier, keeping feces, urine and wound drainage away from both intact and injured skin.
• Mildly antiseptic to help prevent secondary bacterial and fungal infections of the skin.
• May increase circulation to an area and aid in healing, as menthol has been shown to cause vasodilation.
• Acts as a counter-irritant and temporarily relieves discomfort and itching from rashes, eczema, insect bites and contact dermatitis from poison ivy, oak and sumac.

How often should I use Calmoseptine Ointement?
In adults and children Calmoseptine® Ointment can be used as often as needed to provide protection and relief. On newborn infants under a month (neonates), we recommend using it only 4 times a day and not to cover more than 1/8th of the body.

How much Calmoseptine Ointment should I use each time?
It only takes a thin layer for Calmoseptine® Ointment to be effective. In most cases, using too much will not cause any problems but it can be messy. Under ostomy appliances only a very small amount should be used and it must be rubbed in well. Add a small amount of stoma powder to make wafer adhere better.

Where can I safely use Calmoseptine Ointment?
Calmoseptine® Ointment was formulated for use on intact or mildly damaged skin. We do not recommend using it in deep wounds nor on mucous membranes. However, many people have used it without problems on skin transitional areas, close to mucous membranes. These include on the lips, around the anus and around the vaginal opening in women. Calmoseptine® Ointment should not be used in or around the eyes.

How to Use or Apply Calmoseptine Ointment?

In General: To Protect Intact or Injured Skin

1) Cleanse the injured skin or area to be protected prior to application using a mild skin cleanser, normal saline or water.
2) Pat dry, or allow to air dry.
3) Apply a thin layer, 2-4 times daily, to affected area, or as often as necessary to promote comfort and protection. A thick layer will not harm the patient, but it is not necessary and often is messy.
4) When using Calmoseptine® Ointment as a moisture barrier, it is not necessary to thoroughly remove the ointment from the skin with each diaper or dressing change. It is sufficient to cleanse and remove waste material, leaving a base layer of the ointment. Reapply only where necessary.
