In brief: No

Zinc oxide is a topical cream used for barrier protection ie.
Diaper rash: desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) creates a barrier for the skin against contact with feces/urine to prevent irritation). A PPD allergy is a systemic reaction after being exposed to the injection your immune system develops a response that a topical cream like zinc oxide will not be useful
