X-Viate (urea): “This is the most effective cream for my dry heels EVER! I have tried everything imaginable, but this is super effective when used as directed. My heels are better than they have been in years. I am 73 yrs old, no side effects whatsoever. My dermatologist prescribed it for me. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!”

“I have had extremely dry heels for years. I tried to get rid of this dry skin on my heels by exfoliating my heels with a pumice stone as well as pedicures. Nothing helped, until I used this prescription of Urea 40 topical. After 1 use, my heels looked almost totally normal! And I didn't have to do any scrubbing of my heels. All I did was smooth the cream/gel onto my heels before I went to bed. I awoke in the morning to nondry heels. It seems like magic. I wish I had known about this years ago! Thank you to the pharmaceutical industry for making this product!”

X-Viate (urea): “Many may years of severely dry skin all over my body but cold months is the killer. I think skin get red and inflamed no matter oils or other creams you try u may get some short term happiness but I need more. Your heels crack open to blood and severe pain. I found this product and have seen just how strong of a medication this is. Will not stop. Men can put on elbows and knees. You will see great things”

Nutraplus (urea): “I have suffered from dry itchy skin most of my life until some years ago when my dermatologist recommended this urea cream. Since I started to use it the relief has been remarkable and I have been horrified to find that the manufacturers no longer supply the cream and have replaced it with a sticky lotion. Their reason for this is hard to understand as the cream was much easier to apply and I now am looking for a replacement cream.”

Carmol (urea): “I used Carmol Cream 40% for dry cracked heels. It was a RX and I don't know if it is sold over the counter. This cream is amazing & will save you time and money spent during a pedicure. Wish it was readily available! No reason to be controlled under FDA rules?”

Kerol Redi-Cloths (urea): “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.”

“I had allergic experience from gardening and my skin on arms was quickly burned and dried like very old women. After just one use of this cream almost all the wrinkles were peeled out. This is fantastic!”

“A 1oz bottle is expensive! I use it on calloused heals and toes etc. see how far one ounce goes on calloused feet. Not far. And it is a cream. Imagine getting cream out of a one ounce bottle!!! Almost impossible. Needs improvement!!!”

X-Viate (urea): “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.”
