Econazole Medication - Uses, Dosage, Warnings and Side Effects

Econazole belongs to the family of medicines called antifungals. It is used to treat infections caused by a fungus. They work by killing the fungus name as the Candida albicans or preventing its growth. Vaginal econazole is available as vaginal pessaries and vaginal cream. Econazole is also available as a combination pack containing both cream and a vaginal pessary or pessaries. It works by inhibiting the production of a chemical called ergosterol, which is a component of the fungal cell membrane. Damage to this membrane cannot be repaired and this interferes with the fungal cell's ability to reproduce, hence the infection is controlled.
