Keratol 45 Nail Gel
DESCRIPTION: KeratolTM 45 Nail Gel, is a keratolytic emollient, which is a gentle, yet potent, tissue softener for nails and/or skin. Each gram of KeratolTM 45 Nail Gel contains 45% Urea, camphor, edetate disodium, eucalyptus oil, hydroxyethyl Cellulose, menthol, propylene glycol and purified water.
Urea is a diamide of carbonic acid with the following chemical structure:
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 when healing is retarded by local infection, necrotic tissue, fubrinous 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.
PRECAUTIONS: This medication is to be used as directed by a physician and should not be used to treat any condition other than for which it was prescribed. If redness or irritation occurs, discontinue use.
