Eberconazole cream is used in the treatment of fungal or yeast infections. It belongs to a class of medicines called topical antifungals useful in the treatment of athlete’s foot (affects toes), jock itch (affects the groin area), candidiasis (affects mouth, throat, gut, and vagina), and ringworm (affects skin or the scalp). These fungal infections can spread from skin-to-skin contact and commonly affect people with weak immune systems. The Eberconazole cream kills and stops the growth of the fungi by destroying their cell membrane, thereby treating skin infections.
Use the cream as per the prescribed dosage and duration given by the doctor. Apply a sufficient amount to cover the affected area and 1 inch of the immediate surrounding skin. Do not use the Eberconazole cream in the eyes, nose, ears, and other sensitive areas. Some people may experience side effects such as application site reactions, burning, irritation, itching, and redness. Inform your doctor if the infection does not get cured after four weeks of treatment.
