Reviews for Econazole

Baboon Butt · Taken for less than 1 month March 3, 2019

For Cutaneous Candidiasis: "I am a male who had a butt crack yeast infection. The econozole did nothing for me, allowing my issue to worsen. I wish my doctor would have prescribed Nystatin Cream. I had success with that in the past."

For Cutaneous Candidiasis: "Yeast infection in butt crack. Econazole Nitrate 1% did nothing. I could purchase a better antifungal at the dollar store. Condition worsened."

For Tinea Cruris: "My doctor initially gave me clotrimazole but didn't work on me and the itch is killing me. After almost a week and still didn't have any improvement. Luckily I found econazole nitrate and within 2 days I feel so much better."

For Tinea Corporis: "Was prescribed econozale nitrate cream for suspected skin fungus. Used once and it gave me hives. Boo! I've never had hives and I'm 45. Seems like a good cream, just not for me."

For Cutaneous Candidiasis: "Had Angular Chelitis on corners of mouth off and on for over 2 months. At one point it became much worse. I tried topical antibiotic ointments like Bacitracin and over the counter antifungal meds. Neither worked. I finally sought treatment from my MD. I was prescribed Econazole Nitrate Cream. After applying cream for 2 days, my mouth sores were gone. I still continued to apply med for another week. Have had no reoccurance 2 weeks after I stopped applying med."

MCruz618 · Taken for less than 1 month April 27, 2015

For Tinea Corporis: "First day I cleaned up affected area. Let it dry up for about 10 minutes applied and had no side effects. 2nd time cleaned area up dried it and applied right after suddenly felt burning, stinging and itchy redness. So I figured maybe I need to let it dry and let it be for a few before applying application. However the fungus (etc) cleared up rather quickly but still have a little swelling on my ear lobe (which is effective area)."

Spectazole (econazole) for Tinea Pedis: "Similar to the other review. I had tried several other over the counter medicines, but it wasn't until my doctor perscribed me footcream with econozole nitrate that my athlete's foot cleared up. I Highly recommend a creme with econozole nitrate to get rid of stubborn athlete's foot."

For Tinea Versicolor: "Very effective at fungus elimination; however, WATCH THOSE SIDE EFFECTS. Talk about burning and extraordinary sensitivity in a sensitive area."

For Tinea Corporis: "I work in an elementary school. I thought I had something like poison ivy at first but gradualy it turned into a full ring. I have never had ringworm before but had a pretty good idea that's what I was dealing with. I got the Econazole Nitrate Cream and it was gone in less than two weeks. Effortless and painless. Excellent cure!"

Spectazole (econazole) for Tinea Pedis: "I had Athlete's foot, which I caught from the gym and it kept coming back with all medicines I used. It was blistery, itchy and weepy type of athlete's foot. The foot doctor gave me Spectazole cream and almost within days it was better. Within two weeks it dried up nicely. I recommend it to all who have resistant athlete's foot. It's great."
