What should I avoid while using Balmex?

Balmex is a relatively safe medication. Its active ingredient, zinc oxide, is found in many over-the-counter products. Because it never enters the bloodstream, it is unlikely to cause serious problems when used in combination with other drugs. You should be careful about applying Balmex, or another zinc oxide product, in combination with another skin medication. Consult your doctor about any skin problem requiring this type of treatment. Avoid getting Balmex near your face or your baby's face, and do not apply Balmex to deep sores, burned or severely damaged skin.
