Rea Lo 39 - Clinical Pharmacology
Urea cream gently dissolves the intracellular matrix which results in loosening of the horny layer of the skin and shedding of scaly skin at regular intervals, thereby softening hyperkeratotic areas of the skin.
The exact mechanism of action of topically applied urea is not known.
INDICATION AND USAGE
Rea Lo 39™ (Urea 39%) Cream is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dry, rough skin, xerosis, ichthyosis, skin cracks and fissures, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, keratoses and calluses.
Known hypersensitivity to any of the listed ingredients.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips or mucous membranes.
Urea cream should be used as directed by a physician and should not be used to treat conditions other than those for which it was prescribed. If redness or irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Pregnancy: Category C
Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with urea cream. It is also not known whether urea cream can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity. Urea cream should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
It is not known whether urea is excreted in human milk, therefore caution should be exercised when administering to a nursing mother.
Transient stinging, burning, itching or irritation is possible and normally resolves upon discontinuing the medication.
