Helene Says:

I have tubes of Naftin and econazole nitrate cream that have expiration date 9/11 and 11/11 on the crimp edge. Are they still good for treating athlete's foot between toes and for nail fungus on toe.?

Since they expired over a year ago, it's doubtful that they will be effective at treating anything now.

All medications start to lose effectiveness over time and when it comes to a cream or liquid, they break down even faster than tablets or other formulations.

Learn more Naftin details here.

Learn more Econazole details here.

Thus, it would be best to get new tubes of them.

Is there anything else I can help with?
