Hi, thanks for posting your query.
You have small red raised rashes with itching more at night. They heal and show up in other areas.

Econazole nitrate is an anti fungal cream. Your doctor has treated you for a fungal infection.

The other possibility can be urticaria or Bug bites.

Since you are not benefited with this cream, you may report to your doctor.
He may re look into the diagnosis give you appropriate treatment.

Till then you may take oral anti histamine like levocetrizine for itching twice a day and local application of calamine lotion.

Hope this solves your query.
