Hello.. Do all face scrubs contain urea cream or urea in general? Are there any scrubs that don't contain this ingredient? Thanks

Not all have urea: Urea is a specific ingredient of certain facial cleansers, and there are products available that do not contain urea. If you are specifically looking for a scrub, some urea-free examples are: Clean and Clear Deep Action or Morning Burst Scrub, Neutrogena Deep Clean Scrub, Garnier Skinactive Scrub. Other more gentle options without urea include Cetaphil cleanser, or Purpose Cleansing Wash. ...Read more

Urea cream effects: Nothing that urea cream can do is permanent. Skin of a person taking Isotretinoin is very sensitive and dry. It may be just an irritation. I would recommend stopping the urea cream. Additionally, urea cream can leave white deposits on the skin that will wash off with normal, gentle showering. ...Read more

Cleanse immediately.: If you have not already cleansed with a gentle cleanser such as cetaphil and rinsed several times with water, please do so now. Next, place some over the counter Cortaid (hydrocortisone) on the site. Lastly, get a great sunscreen that has physical blockers such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. It is important that an inflamed area on the face not get sun exposure to worsen the discoloration! ...Read more

Wear gloves: Hands may heal by doing nothing, but you can try over-the-counter cortisone cream. And be sure to wear gloves-you can get at walgreens, cvs, etc, when applying the urea cream. ...Read more

I have keratosis pilaris. Can i use anti dandruff shampoo selsun blue and urea cream and retin a (tretinoin) before bedtime?

I have keratosis pilaris. Can i use anti dandruff shampoo selsun blue and urea cream and retin a (tretinoin) before bedtime?

Of course: It may actually help. "KP" is very common and will come and go probably for the rest of your life. If you take good care of yourself, your fitness and otherwise good health and how you carry yourself will keep anyone from noticing or caring about your skin. Several of my physician friends have it; they just laugh about it. Best wishes. ...Read more

For hyperkeratotic skin diseases, which is more better for sensitive skin - lactic acid lotion (lac-hydrin) or urea-based creams?

For hyperkeratotic skin diseases, which is more better for sensitive skin - lactic acid lotion (lac-hydrin) or urea-based creams?

Both used: It really depends on the percentages of each medication. Many preparations have both urea and Lactic Acid in them. Your skin is also unique and what might appear to be gentler might give you a worse reaction than the so-called potent preparation. If you are treating keratosis pilaris (kp) then you might seek the help of a dermatologist or even have a preparation compounded. ...Read more
