What is Econazole Nitrate cream?

Econazole Nitrate cream is a prescription strength antifungal medication that is applied topically to treat a variety of fungal infections including athlete’s foot, ringworm, tinea versicolor (a fungus that discolors skin), yeast infections of the skin, and jock itch. This cream is available with 1% of the antifungal agent Econazole Nitrate.

Econazole Nitrate 1% kills fungi and yeasts by interfering with their cell membranes. More specifically, it stops the fungi and yeasts from producing ergosterol, an essential substance for cell membranes. This leads to holes in the cell membrane, which allows contents of the cells to leak out—thus killing the fungi and treating the infection.

Conditions treated by Econazole Nitrate cream

Econazole Nitrate cream is used for fungal skin infections, which most commonly occur in moist, warm areas of our skin, such as feet or groin areas, where there is poor ventilation.

Econazole Nitrate cream is used to treat skin infections such as athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, and other fungal skin infections.

Athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis, is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. Symptoms include itching, burning, and cracked, scaly skin between your toes. You can acquire the tinea fungus through direct contact with an infected person or by touching surfaces contaminated by it. The fungus thrives in warm, moist environments and is commonly found in showers, on locker room floors, and around swimming pools. Athlete's foot can spread to other parts of your body, including your hands and toenails. Toenails affected by this fungus tend to be more resistant to treatment.

Ringworm is a fungal infection that develops on the top layer of skin. It is characterized by a red circular rash with clearer skin in the middle. Ringworm, known as tinea corporis, is closely related to athlete's foot and is often spread by direct skin contact with an infected person or animal.

Econazole Nitrate cream is also used to treat a skin condition known as tinea versicolor, a fungal infection that causes a lightening or darkening of the neck, chest, arms, or legs.
