No, I had never heard this. But it would be interesting to know if it works. Plain old calamine, not the one blended with hydrocortisone?

Well mummy put it on me when I had measles and chicken pox. So I guess it could work... What's Calamine really intended for?

Well, hydrocortisone will reduce swelling. Sometimes, if I have a really bad blemish, I'll put a little dab of hydrocortisone on it and the swelling will be down by morning.

It makes sense. The smell reminds me of my chicken pox.

I normally use bio-oil which is quite effective.
