Comfortine Ointment

I am trying to find out where I can buy Comfortine Ointment. It is a Pink thick cream sold in a jar or tube. It use to use it for diaper rashes or sores and it was very good. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. ## Do you remember when was the last time you came across this product? Have not had any luck finding it either. It's too bad when good products are discontinued or suddenly disappear. From what I have gathered this ointment contains Zinc Oxide + Vitamin A + Vitamin D (from Cod Liver Oil) as the effective ingredients. There are other topical Zinc based ointments out there, but none with that exact formulation. Another possibility would be to see if a pharmacist could create a custom compound based on those ingredients. Has anybody else had any luck finding this or a...
