How Urea Works
Urea is used to treat dry/rough skin conditions (such as eczema, psoriasis, corns, callus) and some nail problems (such as ingrown nails). It may also be used to help remove dead tissue in some wounds to help wound healing. Urea is known as a keratolytic. It increases moisture in the skin by softening/dissolving the horny substance (keratin) holding the top layer of skin cells together. This effect helps the dead skin cells fall off and helps the skin keep more water in. Do not take by mouth. Urea topical is for use only on the skin. If this medication gets in your eyes, nose, mouth, rectum, or vagina, rinse with water.
Generic Urea vs Brand Urea
Brand and generic Urea are available with a doctor’s prescription. It is entirely your choice whether you want a brand or generic. Brand Urea and generic Urea are identical in dose, strength, safety, efficacy and its intended use. The biggest difference is that the generic is not manufactured inside the Cosmaceutical Research Lab (brand) facility.
