Urea is a diamide of carbonic acid with the following chemical structure:

Uramaxin Cream - Clinical Pharmacology

Urea gently dissolves the intercellular 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

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

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 purulent 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, devitalized and ingrown nails.

Contraindications

Known hypersensitivity to any of the listed ingredients.

Warnings

For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips or mucous membranes.

Precautions

This medication is to be used as directed by a physician and should not be used to treat any condition other than that for which it was prescribed. If redness or irritation occurs, discontinue use.

PREGNANCY

Pregnancy Category B

Animal reproduction studies have revealed no evidence of harm to the fetus, however, there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproductive studies are not always predictive of human response, Uramaxin® (45% Urea) Cream should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

NURSING MOTHERS

It is not known whether or not this drug is secreted in human milk. Because many drugs are secreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Uramaxin® (45% Urea) Cream is administered to a nursing woman.

KEEP THIS AND ALL MEDICATIONS OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Adverse Reactions
