Can anybody recommend good zinc oxide creams for acne in the UK. - where can you get them from, and can you get them on prescription?

I have a sunscreen which has zinc oxide in it and helps reduce oil quite a lot, but just wondering if there are any zinc creams for acne rather than a sunscreen with zinc oxide in it.

Please can you respond - thanks.

The active ingredient in calamine lotion is zinc oxide. It's fairly widespread in pharmacies in the US; I'd imagine it'd be the same for the U.K.
