first Answer did not post... Ointments stay on longer and have a longer lasting effect on the skin... If the area is a place where it can easily be rubbed off then ointment would be best for this... Creams and gels are best used for the face due to less greasiness and works better for facial areas... Ointments also do not dry out the skin as quick as creams and gels and thus many people prefer one to the other... Blaze22
