"Scientists at the National Institutes of Health report they have discovered in mouse studies that a small molecule released in the spinal cord triggers a process that is later experienced in the brain as the sensation of itch.
ACCUZYME (papain and urea) Ointment is generally well-tolerated and non-irritating.
