Generic drug: econazole nitrate
Brand name: Ecoza
What is Ecoza (econazole nitrate), and how does it work?
Ecoza (econazole nitrate) topical foam is indicated for the treatment of interdigital tinea pedis (athlete's foot) caused by Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, and Epidermophyton floccosum in patients 12 years of age and older.
What drugs interact with Ecoza?
- Concomitant administration of econazole and warfarin has resulted in enhancement of anticoagulant effect.
- Most cases reported product application with use under occlusion, genital application, or application to a large body surface area which may increase the systemic absorption of econazole nitrate.
- Monitoring of International Normalized Ratio (INR) and/or prothrombin time may be indicated especially for patients who apply econazole to large body surface areas, in the genital area, or under occlusion.
Is Ecoza safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding?
- There are no available data on Ecoza use in pregnant women to evaluate a drug-associated risk of major birth defects, miscarriage, or adverse maternal or fetal outcomes.
- There is no information available on the presence of econazole nitrate in human milk, the effects of the drug on the breastfed infant, or the effects of the drug on milk production after topical application of Ecoza to women who are breastfeeding.
- It is not known whether econazole nitrate is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when econazole nitrate is administered to a nursing woman.

Athlete's foot (tinea pedis) is a skin infection caused by the ringworm fungus. Symptoms include itching, burning, cracking, peeling, and bleeding feet. Treatment involves keeping the feet dry and clean, wearing shoes that can breathe, and using medicated powders to keep your feet dry.
Fungal nails (onychomycosis) may be caused by many species of fungi, but the most common is Trichophyton rubrum. Distal subungal onychomycosis starts as a discolored area at the nail's corner and slowly spread toward the cuticle. In proximal subungal onychomycosis, the infection starts at the cuticle and spreads toward the nail tip. Yeast onychomycosis is caused by Candida and may be the most common cause of fungal fingernail.
