The main difference between prescription and over-the-counter topical urea is ingredient strength. Topical urea products that require a prescription usually contain a higher concentration of urea. Prescription urea products are often recommended for more severe skin conditions that cause extreme skin scaliness or dryness. Talk to your doctor to determine which type of topical urea product is best for you.
