Reviews for Urea
Rea Lo 40 (urea) for Dermatological Disorders: "One application on alternating days in conjunction with fluocinonide topical for two weeks. After bath and thorough foot scrub, apply Rea Lo or fluocinonide first, then regular lotion (I use Vanicream), then occlude with wet wrap therapy method (saran wrap was suggested as alternative, but I found wet wrap much more comfortable to sleep with: put damp socks on over treated feet, then dry socks over damp socks to keep). Great improvement early on, I expect improvement continued, but was less evident in second week. Treatment completed until eczema flares up again. Also helped hands substantially, even though I used less intensive application."

For Dermatological Disorders: "Have been using this product since the beginning of 2016. I suffer from plaque psoriasis on the palms of my hands and bottoms of my feet, they were cracked, cut open, weeping and bleeding. Everytime I closed or tried to close my hands they cracked and opened more. My feet were bad I could barely stand shoes, and they itched. I went to Dr. was given Prednisone and cortisone cream, it helped but after 2 weeks of using Urea 40 things started clearing nicely, I use it twice daily along with Glysolid cream. These two products have been my saving grace. If I have a flare up, these are my go to guys."

X-Viate (urea) for Dermatological Disorders: "I have raised areas of skin colored keratosis on my ankles legs and top of hands. My dermatologist prescribe me several creams with no really obvious results to speak of. I was just prescribed the cream and overnight the areas already feel different. I am beyond excited that this seems to be working and such a very short amount of time..."

X-Viate (urea) for Dry Skin: "I have only used this medication for about 5 days and have seen immediate results. My feet were so dry, they were cracking. I no longer have any cracks and the peeling is much better."

For Dermatological Disorders: "I have used many lotions, creams, etc. in the past to help with intense itching I get from dyshidrotic eczema ...for 10 years and when I finally found this cream I was in heaven. The moment I put this on my feet or hands, the itching goes away and I no longer feel the need to itch! For anyone who has any kind of eczema you know how hard it is to not scratch or itch and this lotion takes away any itching feeling I might have."

Kerol Redi-Cloths (urea) for Dry Skin: "The Redi Cloths worked on toe callouses that were resistant to other medications. I would have rated them a "10" except that twice they arrived at the pharmacy in bulging packets and the urea side was dry. The pharmacist accepted my return and replaced them. I suspect the problem is due to improper temperature control in transit - perhaps by the distributor."

Carmol 40 (urea) for Dermatological Disorders: "I used this on the advise of a podiatrist on my cracked and calloused heels. I noticed the improvement in a week. I highly recommend this for your hard, rough dry feet. After it has worked its magic, you should just follow up with regular moisturizer everyday and use the Carmol 40% once a week there after."

Carmol 20 (urea) for Dermatological Disorders: "I use this cream for my son who has a rare genetic skin disorder, a form of ichthyosis. He gets a severe hyperkeratosis build up particularly around his joint areas. I've found that it has been wonderfully effective at reducing this build up. I'm very pleased with the product."
