    We also use these. We use protective barrier with zinc to raw, denuded skin and a dimetihicone based for routine barrier use.

    It's a compound made of zinc and some other things. I am not sure I am spelling it correctly. Will check at work tomorrow and let you know for sure. It is really awesome stuff and heals skin up so fast! We love it!:roll

    Okay, I know four out of the five ingredients. Nystatin, cold cream, hydrocortisone and zinc oxide. Works wonders!

    Hey out there from Sunny NorthEast,Pa
    The compound your talking about,I don't know it as the name you called it,however,the ingredients are what I know,,also,,Desitation(baby cream)<~~I know I spelled that wrong!.LoL
    Is also an ingredient in that as well,
    The healing process was absolutely wonderful!
    We used to call this"Miricale Whip "works miracles!
    Also,here is a trip down memory lane,anyone remember when they used to use Mayo & Yogurt paste,use to apply it thick to the wound area,then put a sun lamp on it for about 10 minutes,the theory was the live yogurt killed the bacteria,not sure what the mayo did,unless just protected the skin,When I was in nursing school , many, many years ago,I saw this,,I have never seen it since!
    I know all the possible problems with this theroy,starting with the use of the Sun Lamp!

    Have a great day!

    The fifth ingredient is petroleum jelly. It was developed in Allentown (15 miles up the road from me) by a guy named (you guessed it) Schragger!

    We use a cream called Soothe & Cool Paste, Extra Thick Moisturizing Cream, and Shield & Protect Anti-Fungal Cream in the facility I work in. We also just started to use Xenaderm.

    Is that the same as Boudreaux's "Butt Paste"? The first time somebody asked me to give them the "butt paste" I had to look at her twice to see if she was kidding or being crude, but I guess that is what it is called.:chuckle
