    Lamisil® Cream is formulated to ease the discomfort caused by the symptoms of athlete's foot (tinea between the toes) while actively fighting the infection. The soothing qualities of this cream formulation are well suited for inflamed and tender areas, and for dry, scaly or cracked infected skin.

    Unlike many anti-fungal treatments that require as many as three daily applications for up to 4 weeks, Lamisil® Cream needs only one daily application for 7 days to effectively eliminate athlete's foot.

    How it works

    An anti-fungal product is necessary to treat tinea. The active ingredient of Lamisil® Cream - terbinafine – fights the infection by not only preventing growth of the fungi, but by killing the fungal cells.

    Lamisil® Cream has a gentle formula that is suitable for skin that is irritated and sensitive due to the fungal infection. It provides relief from common tinea symptoms such as itching and burning. Lamisil® Cream can be applied directly to the infected areas.

    How to use Lamisil® Cream

    Apply Lamisil® Cream once daily

    1. Clean and thoroughly dry the affected areas on the feet.
    2. Apply a sufficient amount of the cream to the affected skin and surrounding area and rub in gently. Use only a thin layer of cream. When treating athelete's foot, apply the cream to both feet, even if symptoms only affect one foot.
    3. After application cover the area with gauze. This is particularly useful at bedtime.



    While the signs of the infection may disappear after using Lamisil® Cream for only a few days, it is important to continue treatment for the recommended period. If you use it for only a few days, you may not eliminate all the fungi from the affected areas. As a result, the infection may return soon after you stop using the product.

    If there is no improvement in your condition after using Lamisil® Cream for the recommended time, see your doctor or pharmacist.

  • FAQs


    Can I stop using Lamisil® Cream as soon as my symptoms disappear?

    No. Lamisil® Cream relieves your symptoms before the infection is fully eliminated. That's why it's important to use Lamisil® Cream as directed.

    How often should I apply Lamisil® Cream?

    Once daily.

    How long do I need to use Lamisil® Cream?

    Once daily, for 7 days.


    I only have symptoms on one foot, so why should I treat both feet?

    In the majority of athlete's foot cases both feet are infected – even if you don't have symptoms on both. To make sure your athlete's foot is treated effectively and to prevent re-infection, use Lamisil® Cream as directed.

  • FAQs

    What else can I do during treatment for athlete's foot?

    Wash your feet daily and dry them well afterwards. You should also change your towel, washcloth and socks every day during treatment. And finally, resist scratching the infected area. This can allow the fungus to contaminate your surroundings, which could result in re-infection.
