    I was prescribed this for angular cheilitis (mouth/lip condition) and was advised by my doctor I should see an improvement in a few days.

    Applied this to fungus on the top and sides of my feet. While at first it seemed to work, the fungus quickly returned as the weather warmed and my feet sweated more. There is no generic available and it's no more effective than generic econazole.
