Summary of "A randomised trial of honey barrier cream versus zinc oxide ointment."

In this single-blind multicentre, intervention study, 31 patients with symmetrical intertrigo in large skin folds were included to study the clinical effect of two topical treatments, i.e. standard therapy with zinc oxide ointment versus honey barrier cream. Patients were treated twice daily for 21 days, and the severity of intertrigo was scored in an observation period of 21 days. Patients were used as their own controls by treating symmetrical skin folds, on the left and right side.
