My dermatologist prescribed Urea 40% lotion for Keratosis pilaris. Although, this condition no longer bothers me mentally/emotionally, like it did when I was younger now that I know there is a treatment for it I am interested in getting the prescription; however, even with insurance my cost for this lotion is $90. Are there any other cheaper options to treating this skin issue? I was told by my pharmacist lesser percentage Urea lotions are less than half the cost of my prescription. But are they worth trying?

Hi there. Speaking from experience, the lesser % urea is basically useless. The 40% as you recall was an excellent topical solution for said conditions. A handful of patrons at our pharmacy opted for the lesser value OTC lotion; sadly each were very disappointed. Everyone responds differently but a negative consensus seems to prevail with this. Hope that helps a little. Regards.

I decided to not waste my money on a lower % Urea lotion. Instead my dermatologist suggested using Rx savings cards for discounted Rx rates. I've been using the prescribed 40% Urea lotion daily for about 2 weeks now and I personally don't really notice a difference but maybe it takes more time.
