Frequently asked questions for Eberconazole

Eberconazole

Q. What is Eberconazole? What is it used for?

Eberconazole is an antifungal medicine applied on the skin to treat superficial fungal infections. It can be used in fungal infections caused by dermatophytes (fungus causing ringworm like infections) and yeast. Eberconazole acts by preventing the growth of the fungus by stopping formation of essential component of fungal membrane responsible for structural and functional changes leading to abnormal cell wall synthesis, hence halting the growth of the fungal infection.

Q. How to use Eberconazole?

Before using Eberconazole, clean and dry the affected area. Gently and thoroughly massage it into the skin. Be careful not to get the medication in your eyes or mouth. If Eberconazole gets in your eyes accidentally, wash with plenty of water and call your doctor if your eyes are irritated.

Q. My itching is gone, so can I stop using Eberconazole?

You must complete the course of treatment even if the irritation is gone. Eberconazole is an antifungal medication and treats fungal infections of the skin. In fungal infection of the skin, the fungus stays in the layers of the skin. So, even though the medication may clear the symptoms in a few days, the infection can be present in deeper layers of the skin. You may need to keep applying this medicine for 4-6 weeks.

Q. Will just applying Eberconazole relieve my infection?

Eberconazole is prescribed when the fungal infection is superficial. It is not always true, but sometimes superficial fungal infections need oral antifungal therapy too. So the doctor decides whether the patient needs just Eberconazole or a combination of Eberconazole and oral medicine depending on the severity and site of the fungal infection.

Q. Are there any precautions that need to be kept in mind?

Fungal infections occur due to improper hygiene, weak immunity or even stress. They may occur as a side effect of other medications as well. Maintaining proper hygiene can prevent fungal infections. Bathe every day, trim your nails regularly, do not use anyone else’s towel, dry the infected area properly, and use clean undergarments that are made of cotton. Avoid wearing tight clothing. Complete the course of the treatment given by doctor, avoid creams that contain steroids.
