Only for fungus: The econazole only helps with fungal infections, like athlete's foot and ringworm. Instead try over the counter emollient lotions (aquaphor, eucerin, vaseline) on top of hydrocortisone cream OTC. This works best at bed time, then put cotton socks over your hands and feet. See a doc if this doesn't help or you think you could have an infection of the areas (called impetigo), call your doc.

Econazole Nitrate: Econazole Nitrate is a topical anti-fungal cream so it's effective for tinea/dermatophyte infections. If you have Eczema, you will most likely require a topical corticosteroid. A dermatologist will be able to evaluate and prescribe the appropriate treatment.
