I am 71 and never had cystitis till about 3 yrs ago. Then I got 1 sachet of powder to take in 1/2 glass water, within 48 hrs I was nearly right. I got it again, different doc gave me tablets, took longer to work, but fingers crossed fine since.  Cranberries are wonderful if you google cranberries and cystitis tou will find why they are so good. I have them on cereal now every morning.

Econazole is a treatment for thrush (candida albicans).

Sounds like a misunderstanding at the pharmacie counter.

Well said grannydot.  Cystitus is very unpleasant and can lead to serious kidney infection if not treated effectively.  Why not visit your doc (or just any doc if you aren't registered here) and get something that wil clear it up rapidly and with certainty.

Till you get some applicable medication get some cranberry juice and drink that, or eat cranberries, lidl sell them.  the more you can drink and eat of cranberries, the better. The stuff they sell over the counter is not very good you are far better to get something on prescription for the doctor.

Have just sent you a PM Angeline.  Econazole Arrow is not for cystitis.  Hope my message helps you.  If you need any more help please ask.

Done a bit more research and think one is cream and the other maybe liquid to use for other purposes as this medication also seems to be sold for fungal nail infection.  Think maybe cream for use along with pessary

Often pessaries and some tablets have air (perhaps liquid) bubbles in the plastic sheet it is in, to act as a preservative or protection for the medication and is just thrown away with the packaging.  If still in doubt better to ask your pharmacist.
