I've never heard of Calmoseptine. I had to google to see if was the same thing as Calamine Lotion. It isn't, but the do both contain calamine. Wikipedia informs me that "Calamine is a mixture of zinc oxide (ZnO) with about 0.5% ferric oxide (Fe2O3)." Huh. It's true, I do learn something new every day.

I also think I'm going to the Walgreens near my house tonight since the Walgreens website indicates they have (or should have) some in stock. Who knows, Calamine is supposed to be a mild antiseptic, so maybe it will even clear up the skin on the underside of my breasts. I wonder if all well-endowed women have problems with acne there. A few years ago the mammographer said I should try oil of primrose. I never got around to trying and until a few seconds ago I thought the application was topical. Turns out it's an oral medicine, sometimes used for PMS, eczema, and it may be useful for rheumatoid arthritis and breast pain. Wiki also tells me that the plant, the Evening Primrose is native to North America. I should find out whether it is native to my area and if so, try to grow some. Not for medical use, just because I love native plants and the flower's kinda cute.

I think all women have some irritation under the breasts when it's humid. This is the best thing I've found to protect the skin.
