CHEMICAL STRUCTURE Urea has the following chemical structure:
CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY Topically applied urea dissolves the intercellular matrix of the skin which results in enhanced shedding of scaly, dry skin and thus a softening of the hyperkeratotic areas of the skin. Urea topically applied to the nail plate has a similar effect on the intercellular matrix of the nail plate.
PHARMACOKINETICS The mechanism of action of topically applied urea is not yet known.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE For enzymatic debridement and promotion of normal healing of surface lesions, particularly where healing is retarded by local infection, necrotic tissue, fibrinous or purulent debris, or eschar. Topically applied urea is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis, xerosis, ichthyosis, eczema, keratosis, keratoderma, and dry, rough skin, as well as corns and calluses and damaged, ingrown and devitalized nails.
CONTRAINDICATIONS Known hypersensitivity to any of the listed ingredients.
