Information - Lamisil Antifungal Cream
Lamisil products are used to treat fungal (tinea) infections of the skin such as athletes foot, "jock itch", and ringworm, pityriasis and candida skin infections. Lamisil contains Terbinafine which works by killing dermatophytes and killing or stopping the growth of yeasts.
Lamisil Cream is usually applied once or twice daily. It is important to clean and thoroughly dry the affected areas before applying Lamisil Cream. Apply the cream to the affected skin and surrounding area in a thin layer and rub it in lightly. If you need to apply the cream between your toes, fingers or buttocks, under a breast or armpit, or in the groin region, the area may be covered with gauze after applying the cream. This is particularly useful at bedtime.
Lamisil Cream is for external use only. Wash your hands after using the cream. Avoid applying the cream near your eyes, or touching your eyes while you still have the cream on your hands.
