    Chemical Structure


  • CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

    CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY: Urea gently dissolves the intracellular matrix which results in loosening the horny layer of skin and shedding scaly skin at regular intervals, thereby softening hyperkeratotic areas. Urea also hydrates and gently dissolves the intercellular matrix of the nail plate, which can result in the softening and eventual debridement of the nail plate.


  • PHARMACOKINETICS

    PHARMACOKINETICS: The mechanism of action of topically applied Urea is not yet known.


  • INDICATIONS & USAGE

    INDICATIONS AND USES: For debridement and promotion of normal healing of hyperkeratotic surface lesions, particularly where healing is retarded by local infection, necrotic tissue, fibrinous or prurient debris or eschar. Urea is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dry, rough skin, dermatitis, psoriasis, xerosis, ichthyosis, eczema, keratosis, keratoderma, corns and calluses, as well as damaged, ingrown and devitalized nails.
