Re: [IP] Cavilon barrier cream



> Where can you get Cavilon cream?

Cavilon Cream made by 3M (1-800-2283957) product
number is 3392 Durable Barrier Cream.

Best bet would be a medical supply house that handles ostoemy 
patients. Look in the yellow pages. You can probably get your 
pharmacist to order it also.
