Calmoseptine® Ointment, its uses, and effects have been studied in a variety of case studies, clinical trials, academic journal publications, and news and media. The following are a few features Calmoseptine® Ointment has seen in recent years.
Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis (IAD) Study:
Blind Assessment and Treatment with Zinc Oxide Based Ointment
Population: children >12 years and adults with urinary and/or fecal incontinence and IAD. Following informed consent, participants were randomised to receive a structured skin care regimen for one week with either Calmoseptine® Ointment or Desitin Maximum Strength Diaper Rash Paste.
Results: In the Calmoseptine® Ointment group, significantly higher numbers of participants were completely healed on day 6 (p=0.009) and there were greater reductions in area affected on all follow-up days (p=0.000)
Conclusions: Used within a structured skin care regimen for treatment of IAD, Calmoseptine® Ointment is more effective than Desitin in terms of complete healing and reduction of area affected.

She tried several products to determine their effect on the peristomal skin inside the wafer... Calmoseptine® Ointment was then applied, which resulted in effective healing. The Calmoseptine® Ointment provided an effective moisture barrier and protected the skin from stool drainage and recurrence of the pseudoverrucous lesions.

Successfully Managing Incontinence-Related Irritant Dermatitis Across the Lifespan
The key to prevention of perineal dermatitis is in keeping moisture away from the skin. The nurse's primary goal is to keep the skin as healthy and protected as possible.
A noticeable decrease in redness and irritation occurred 24 hours after initiating Calmoseptine® Ointment in an 11-year-old-boy.
A 60-year-old male was admitted to an acute care facility with a diagnosis of coronary artery disease. He had an underlying history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, myocardial infarctions, mitral valve replacement, and cerebral vascular accident. During his hospitalization, he underwent an coronary artery bypass graft surgery. Approximately 4 days post-surgery, the patient developed diarrhea, which resulted in excoriation with partial-thickness tissue loss of the entire perineal area. The patients skin care was managed with a commercial perineal cleanser and Calmoseptine® Ointment as needed. The patient's severely irritated perineal are healed within 5 days.
