Ointment and cream are 2 different things. Each exclusive of the other. Creams are water-based. Ointments are oil-based. It's like giving "acrylic" as the clue when the answer is "watercolor". You could use "salve" or "topical medicine". (And liniment is more different still, not a cream either, but a liquid.)
