amount to cause systemic effect. It is slowly metabolized in the skin and
thus tend to be systemically absorbed to a greater extent.

skin of normal subjects, systemic absorption of econazole nitrate in
extremely low. Although most of the applied drug remains on the skin
surface, drug concentrations were found in the stratum corneum which, by
far, exceeded the minimum inhibitory concentration for dermatophytes.

middle region of the dermis. Less than 1% of the applied dose was recovered
