Urea Nail Gel Description

45% Urea Nil Gel is a keratolytic emollient, which is a gentle, yet potent, tissue softener for nails and/or skin. Each gram of 45% Urea Nail Gel contains: 45% urea. Other ingredients: camphor, disodium EDTA, eucalyptus oil, hydroxyethylcellulose, menthol, propylene glycol, and purified water.

Urea is a diamide of carbonic acid with the following chemical structure:

Urea Nail Gel - 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 removal of devitalized nail plate tissue.

PHARMACOKINETICS

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

INDICATIONS AND USES

45% Urea Nail Gel is indicated for use in the topical treatment 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 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.

Warnings

Precautions

This medication is to be used as directed by a physician and should not be used to treat any condition other than that for which it was prescribed. If redness or irritation occurs, discontinue use. If swallowed seek medical attention or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

PREGNANCY

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, 45% Urea Nail Gel 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 45% Urea Nail Gel is administered to a nursing woman.
