SIDE EFFECTS

Rarely, transient local mild irritation, itching & redness may occur immediately after application. Zolecon (Econazole Nitrate) has minimal allergic effect. It is well tolerated, even by delicate skin. Local irritations are not likely to occur, except in the rare cases, e.g. in eczematous skin areas.

USE IN PREGNANCY AND LACTATION

During Pregnancy: There is no information of any abnormality or adverse event in neonates while Zolecon (Econazole Nitrate) Cream had been used during pregnancy.

During Lactation: As the systemic absorption of Zolecon (Econazole Nitrate) cream is extremely low after topical/vaginal use, excretion in breast milk is likely to be negligible. So it can be used topically/vaginally during lactation if needed.
