Athlete´s foot treatment

The best and most effective way to treat athlete´s foot is a topical antifungal medication. Treatments are available over the counter from the pharmacy or online, and are available in cream, gel and liquid formats.

Lamisil offers a range of products that contain terbafine – an antifungal active ingredient that kills the fungi, soothes the symptoms and prevents athlete´s foot from coming back for up to 3 months.

Athlete’s foot treatment should not be stopped prematurely

Even if symptoms subside, this may not mean that athlete’s foot infection has been eliminated. If treatment is stopped prematurely, athlete’s foot may come back. Therefore, continue the treatment according to the directions for use for the full treatment duration, even if symptoms are no longer noticeable.

Lamisil continues to work beyond the end of the treatment period, working effectively against athlete’s foot and reducing the risk of recurring infections with a comparatively short period of use.

If you want to get rid of athlete’s foot without having to treat it every day, then use Lamisil Once. A single application is all that is required thanks to its unique film forming action. The active ingredient is continuously released from the film into the skin and stays there for up to 13 days after application and fights the pathogens that cause athlete’s foot.

Tips for preventing athlete’s foot


Make sure your feet are clean and dry, especially between the toes.


Avoid going barefoot in shared showers and changing rooms. Always wear waterproof sandals or thongs.


Wash your feet thoroughly with water and pH-neutral soap and dry them carefully. This is particularly important after exercising or wearing closed shoes such as sneakers or work boots.


Wear clean socks every day and wash dirty socks at 60°C. If your feet get very sweaty, change your socks twice a day. Opt for a breathable material such as cotton, bamboo or other natural materials to help keep your feet dry.
