I've been using zinc oxide for years without issue.
I also use it lightly on my Arab's sheath skin where he was gelded, the opening area, and his belly button, as there is something about his odor that draw biting flies like magnets.
If I put the diaper rash cream on him, he can go the whole day without getting bit up; there isn't a fly spray made that I can wipe on that will allow him to stay free of fly bites in that area.
It can be a sticky mess, though:(
