Econazole Mylan side effects

- Due to the low resorption rate of econazole (0.5% to 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). - Very rare cases of contact eczema at the application site have been reported. - Due to the presence of propylene glycol and butylated hydroxytoluene (E321), risk of eczema of contact, irritation of the skin and mucous membranes.
- Because of the presence of ethanol, frequent applications on the skin can cause irritation and dryness of the skin.
