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

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.

I was prescribed 30% urea cream for isotretinoin induced kp. I applied it to my forearms overnight and awoke to find pits of hypopigmentation. Help! ?
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

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?
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
