    Clotrimazole and econazole used as treatment for vaginal candidosis are both effective when given for three days. In a single-blind controlled study of 110 women followed for 14 days the efficacy of treatment with clotrimazole and econazole for three days was equal. Eighty-six per cent of the group treated with clotrimazole were mycologically clear at 14 days compared with 90% of those treated with econazole. Both treatment regimens were equally acceptable to the patients and no side effects were reported.
