Umecta Nail Film Dosage
Urea topical is available in many different forms (cream, lotion, ointment, liquid, gel, foam, shampoo, and others) for use on the skin or the scalp. Use your medicine exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
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.
Use a mild soap or cleanser to wash the skin or nail area to be treated. Urea topical may work best if the skin or nail to be treated is left slightly damp before the medicine is applied.
Apply a thin layer of this medicine to the affected skin and rub it in as completely as possible.
When applying urea topical to the nails, avoid getting any medicine on the cuticles or surrounding skin. Apply generously to the nail and allow the medicine to dry. You may cover the nail with a bandage or gauze if your doctor advises. The treated nail should be easily removed after several days.
Shake the urea topical foam well just before each use. Other forms of this medicine may also need to be shaken before use. Follow all directions on th medicine label.
Wash your hands with soap and water after applying this medicine, unless you are treating the skin on your hands.
Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse while using urea topical.
Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Do not freeze. Keep the medicine container tightly closed when not in use.
Keep the foam canister away from open flame or high heat. The canister may explode if it gets too hot. Do not puncture or burn an empty foam canister.
Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222.
Use the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not use extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
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.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, lips or mucous membranes.
