Kylemore 50% Urea Ointment is a keratolytic emollient, which is a gentle, yet potent, tissue softener for skin. Each gram of Kylemore 50% Urea Ointment contains 50% Urea, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Carbomer, Cetyl Alcohol, Edetate Disodium, Glycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Lactic Acid, Linoleic Acid, PEG-6, Polysorbate 60, Propylene Glycol, Purified Water, Sorbitan Stearate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Triethanolamine, Xanthan Gum, and Zinc Pyrithione.
Urea is a diamide of carbonic acid with the following chemical structure:
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.
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 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.
Known hypersensitivity to any of the listed ingredients.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips or mucous membranes.
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.
