Urea 40%

Rx Only

For topical use only.

Not for ophthalmic use.

Description

Each gram contains 400 mg of urea in a vehicle consisting of:
carbopol 940, cetyl alcohol, glycerin monostearate, mineral oil, propylene glycol, purified water, trolamine 99%, white petrolatum, xanthan gum.

Clinical Pharmacology

Urea 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.

Pharmacokinetics

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

Indications and Usage

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 eshar. Urea is useful for the treatment of hyperkeratotic conditions such as dry, rough skin, dermatitis, psoriasis, xerosis, ichthyosis, eczema, keratosis pilaris, keratosis palmaris, keratoderma, corns and calluses, as well as damaged, ingrown and devitalized nails.

Contraindications

Known hypersensitivity to any of the listed ingredients.

Warnings

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

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.

Precautions

FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
NOT FOR OPHTHALMIC USE. Avoid contact with eyes, lips and mucous membranes.

PREGNANACY

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, Urea 40% should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

NURSING MOTHERS

It is not known whether or not this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Urea 40% is administered to a nursing woman.

Adverse Reactions

Transient stinging, burning, itching or irritation may occur and normally disappear upon discontinuing the medication.
