AbstractA clinical trial with Cotaryl cream was undertaken on 60 patients suffering from various hyperkeratotic skin conditions, attending the Skin & VD outdoor from 1st March, 1977 to 28th February, 1978. Main constituent of Cotaryl Cream is 12% urea and it is known for its antipruritic, keratolytic, hygroscopic and antibacterial action. Our results were very encouraging and results were recorded as excellent in 11 patients, good in 25, moderate in 15, poor in 7. No response was observed in two patients.
