Can you use econazole nitrate cream for jock itch?

Answers (1)

31 Oct 2011

Yes - definitely. Jock itch is caused by a fungus and econazole cream is used to treat fungal infections. It usually needs to be applied twice a day and it is best to continue using it for 5 to 7 days after you think the infection has cleared to make sure you get rid of it.
If after two weeks you are seeing no signs of improvement you may need to see your doctor or pharmacist for something stronger.
