Local irritations are not likely to occur, except in rare cases, e.g., in eczematous skin areas. In such cases, anti-eczematous treatment is recommended for several days before therapy with Econazole is initiated.
Hypersensitivity has rarely been recorded. If something like this occur, administration of the product should be discontinued. The infected area should be kept clean and dry during treatment.
There is no information about the contraindication of Econazole.
Use in Pregnancy & Lactation
During pregnancy: There is no information of any abnormality or adverse event in neonates while Econazole Cream / VT had been used during pregnancy.
During lactation: As the systemic absorption of Econazole Nitrate cream is extremely low after topical/vaginal use, excretion in breastmilk is likely to be negligible. So, it can be used topically/vaginally during lactation if needed.
