Ertaczo (sertaconazole nitrate) Cream is used to treat fungal infections of the skin such as athlete's foot. It is an antifungal medication. Common side effects include burning, swelling, irritation, tenderness, discoloration, or dry skin.

Sufficient cream should be applied to cover both the affected areas between the toes and the immediately surrounding healthy skin.

Although unlikely, other medications may interact with Ertazco topical. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. Ertaczo should be used only when prescribed during pregnancy.

Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug, and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.
In clinical trials, cutaneous adverse events occurred in 7 of 297 (2%) subjects (2 of them severe) receiving ERTACZO® cream, 2%, and in 7 of 291 (2%) subjects (2 of them severe) receiving vehicle. These reported cutaneous adverse events included contact dermatitis, dry skin, burning skin, application site skin tenderness.
In a dermal sensitization trial, 8 of 202 evaluable subjects tested with ERTACZO® cream, 2%, and 4 of 202 evaluable subjects tested with vehicle, exhibited a slight erythematous reaction in the challenge phase.
