Ecoza (econazole nitrate) Topical Foam is an azole antifungal used to treat a fungal infection of the feet, commonly called athlete's foot (interdigital tinea pedis) caused by Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, and Epidermophyton floccosum. Common side effects of Ecoza Topical Foam include application site reactions such as burning, stinging, itching, or redness of the skin.

Clinical Trials Experience
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 two double-blind, vehicle-controlled clinical trials, 495 subjects were exposed to Ecoza topical foam or vehicle (246 subjects were exposed to Ecoza topical foam, 1% and 249 were exposed to vehicle). Subjects with interdigital tinea pedis applied foam or vehicle once daily for approximately 28 days. During clinical trials with Ecoza topical foam, the most common adverse reactions were application site reactions which occurred in less than 1% of subjects in both the Ecoza and vehicle arms.
