Against indications

Notion of intolerance or sensitization to imidazole derivatives, or to any of the constituents of the product.

Econazole Rpg side effects

· Due to the low resorption rate of econazole (0.5% - 2%) on healthy skin, the risk of systemic effects can be virtually ruled out.
However, on an injured skin, a large area, and in the infant (because of the ratio surface / weight and the effect of occlusion of the layers), one must be attentive to this eventuality.

· Locally, the rare manifestations of intolerance are sensations of burns, or sometimes pruritus and redness of the skin; these events rarely lead to discontinuation of treatment (approximately 1.7% of cases).
