Features

Calmoseptine Ointment - 4 oz tube

  • Contains calamine, zinc oxide, menthol and lanolin
  • For temporary relief of discomfort and itching
  • Helps to protect and heal skin irritations
  • Provides multipurpose moisture barrier

Product Overview

Calmoseptine Ointment - 4 oz tube

Calmoseptine Ointment


Calmoseptine Ointment helps to protect and heal skin irritations from feeding tube leakage, incontinence of urine or feces, minor burns, scrapes, diaper rash or wound drainage, fecal or vaginal fistulas, and moisture such as perspiration. Temporarily relieves discomfort and itching. Provides a multipurpose moisture barrier. Contains calamine, zinc oxide, menthol and lanolin.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE OF CALMOSEPTINE OINTMENT


Incontinence


1. Gently clean the skin with a mild skin cleanser and/or water.
2. Rinse with clean water.
3. Pat the area dry with a clean towel or gauze.
4. Apply a small amount of Calmoseptine Ointment to cover the area completely.
5. Repeat after each bowel movement or when skin becomes wet with urine or drainage. It is not necessary to remove all of the Calmoseptine when soiling occurs. Simply cleanse soiled area and reapply the Calmoseptine where needed to provide complete protection.

Gastric, jejeunal and suprapubic tube sites


1. Gently cleanse area with normal saline, mild skin cleanser or soap and water.
2. Apply a thin layer of Calmoseptine to the skin around the tube.
3. If necessary to control drainage and protect clothing, cover the ointment with a drain sponge or other dressing.
4. Twice a day application is usually sufficient. If the dressing becomes saturated, it should be replaced more frequently, not reinforced. A thick dressing holds the drainage against the skin and can make the problem worse.
5. It is not necessary to remove all of the Calmoseptine with each dressing change. Simply wipe drainage away and reapply Calmoseptine and dressing.

Skin Folds


1. Cleanse area gently and pat or air dry. It is very important that the area is thoroughly dry.
2. Apply a small amount of Calmoseptine Ointment.
3. Spread thinly and rub in well.
4. Reapply once or twice daily.

Peri-wound skin


1. Remove dressing and cleanse the wound as ordered. Use wound care solution to also cleanse drainage from the skin surrounding the wound.
2. Apply a thin layer of Calmoseptine to skin surrounding the wound.
3. Cover the wound and wound edges with an appropriate dressing.

Note: Tape will not adhere to areas covered with Calmoseptine so dressing must extend beyond those areas.

Weepy or Denuded Areas


Using stoma powder (i.e.: Convatec Stomahesive® Powder, Hollister Premium® Powder) or karaya powder with Calmoseptine Ointment can help it adhere to weepy and denuded areas. This forms a very protective, somewhat absorbent barrier.

1. Cleanse the area using normal saline or wound cleanser.
2. Very gently pat the area dry with sterile gauze.
3. Apply a light dusting of stoma or karaya powder to the denuded area. This creates a dry surface to help the Calmoseptine stick to the wound. Gently dust off excess powder.
4. Gently place a layer of Calmoseptine Ointment over the powdered area.
5. Apply another light coating of the powder over the Calmoseptine Ointment.
6. It may be necessary to repeat, adding another layer of Calmoseptine and powder in order to entirely cover the wound.
7. Repeat after each bowel movement or diaper or dressing change. As in above applications, it is not necessary or advisable to remove all of the Calmoseptine each time. Simply cleanse the surface and reapply the ointment where necessary.

Removal of Calmoseptine from the skin

It is not usually necessary to entirely remove Calmoseptine Ointment from the skin. Any soiled areas can be cleansed of soil leaving a thin layer of ointment. More Calmoseptine Ointment is then applied only where necessary. This minimizes trauma to the skin from friction during cleansing.

If it is necessary to thoroughly cleanse the ointment from the skin, Calmoseptine Ointment can be removed by wiping with a clean dry cloth or gauze. Skin or wound cleansers with surfactants may also be used.

If skin is tender or fragile, or if stoma powder has been used and the ointment is crusted, patting or rubbing with oil (mineral, vegetable, or baby oil) will soften the ointment for easier removal. Any residual can then be removed with soap and water or a skin or wound cleanser.

Answer:
Calmoseptine hasMenthol 0.44% so it's reasonalbe that there would be a burning sensation in sensitive areas. In caring for mom (post stroke) we are careful to not use Calmoseptine for vulvar skin care. For that area, Dr. recommended "small amounts of A&D OIntment) as often as needed to protect the skin.

Answer:
The menthol would cause a burning sensation in the delicate vaginal tissue. I would not use this in the vaginal area unless specifically directed by a nurse or other medical professional who instructed me on care of a fistula or other wound in the vaginal or perineal area. Good luck!

Answer:
Yes, because of the ingredients (menthol) it will sting, especially on the sensitive areas. It should go away quickly. This ointment is excellent at healing and protecting diaper rash.

Answer:
Go to your nearest non profit for rehab products to see who can custom fit you with the proper seat. Both in material, whether that be roho or another with pressure mapping based on your pressure points. If they cannot do it, they can usually point you to a resource that can.

Answer:
Before trying to solve this problem yourself with products, I would suggest that you ask your physician for a referral for a visiting nurse specializing in wound care. We did that for my elderly grandmother, who had a pressure sore on her bottom, and the wound care nurse educated us on exactly how to treat the area, what products to use, the best kind of seat for the wheelchair, how to position my grandmother, etc. The pressure sore got so much better! All best to you.

Answer:
This is the best ointment for bed sore that i have ever found. I have ordered so many ointments, and the nurse told me my mothers bed sore was a stage four bed sore. It is healed, by persistence, this creme, and not sitting on her butt for more than 4 hours at a time. She is totally healed. I would highly highly recommend this, My nurses aid told me it is the best stuff, in all her jobs that she has worked.

It works well for bed sores but you must also try to relieve pressure on that area using a pillow to prop up the butt.
