Show Column Comment - MySQL - PHP

Hi E's,
I want to know how I get/show the comment of each column in my table (MySQL).

For example, I use this code for get the name of columns:
$tnames_result = mysql_query("SHOW COLUMNS FROM zz_botoes FROM wwdablio_www", $db);
$tnames_rows = mysql_num_rows($tnames_result);
while($tnames = mysql_fetch_array($tnames_result)){
echo $tnames[0];
}

Note: zz_botoes is the name of the table, and wwdablio_www was the name of db.
How I do for see the comments of each column of table zz_botoes?

Regards, JC

Include the word FULL before COLUMNS

SHOW FULL COLUMNS FROM.....

Your result will include a column called 'comments'
