Adverse effects Econazole Arrow

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 burning, or sometimes pruritus and redness of the skin: these manifestations rarely lead to discontinuation of treatment (about 1.7% of cases).

Risk of contact eczema, irritation of the skin and mucous membranes, due to the presence of butylated hydroxyanisole (E320), butylated hydroxytoluene (E321) and benzoic acid (E210).
