  • Lamisil® DermGel®

    15 g


    Lamisil® DermGel® is non-greasy and dries quickly. It is designed to provide cooling relief from the symptoms of tinea while actively fighting the infection.

    The gel formulation is suitable for use on a variety of common fungal conditions, but as it is easy to apply to hairy areas, it is well suited to treat jock itch (tinea cruris). It is also an excellent choice if large areas of the body need treatment.

    Unlike many anti-fungal treatments that require as many as three daily applications for up to 4 weeks, Lamisil® DermGel® needs only one daily application for 7 days to effectively eliminate tinea such as athlete's foot (tinea between the toes), ringworm or jock itch.

    Why should I choose Lamisil® DermGel®?

    • Short treatment time for athlete's foot (tinea between the toes), jock itch and
      ringworm - once daily application for 7 days

    How it works

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

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


    What Lamisil® DermGel® is used for

    Lamisil® DermGel® is used to treat tinea infections of the skin such as athlete's foot (tinea between the toes), jock itch (tinea of the groin), and ringworm (tinea of the body). It is also useful for treating pityriasis versicolor (tinea versicolor), a superficial fungal infection of the skin.

    How to use Lamisil® DermGel®

    Apply Lamisil® DermGel® once a day for 7 days

    1. Clean and thoroughly dry the affected areas on the skin.
    2. Use the amount of gel sufficient to treat the infected skin and surrounding area and rub in gently.
    3. If you need to apply Lamisil® DermGel® between your toes, fingers or buttocks; under a breast or armpit; or in the groin region, cover the area with gauze after the gel has been applied. This is particularly useful at bedtime.

    Lamisil® DermGel® should only be applied to skin on the outside of the body. Remember to thoroughly wash your hands after application to avoid infecting other parts of your body.



    While the signs of the infection may disappear after using Lamisil® DermGel® 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 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® DermGel® for the recommended time, see your doctor or pharmacist.

  • FAQs

    What else can I do during treatment for tinea?

    Wash your skin daily and dry well. You should also change your towel, washcloth, underwear 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.
