Answer

Keratolytics

Keratolytics cause cornified epithelium to swell, soften, macerate, and then desquamate.

Coal tar shampoo (DHS Tar, MG217, Theraplex T, Psoriasin); Scytera foam

Coal tar shampoo inhibits deregulated epidermal proliferation and dermal infiltration; it is antipruritic and antibacterial.
