    How to use Lamisil® Cream

    Apply Lamisil® Cream once daily

    1. Clean and thoroughly dry the affected areas on the skin.
    2. Use the amount of cream sufficient to treat the affected skin and surrounding area and rub in gently. Use only a thin layer of cream. When treating athlete's foot, apply the cream to both feet, even if the symptoms only affect one foot.
    3. If you need to apply Lamisil® Cream between your toes, fingers or buttocks, under a breast or armpit, or in the groin region, cover the area with gauze after the cream has been applied. 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

    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.

    What else can I do during treatment for tinea?

    Wash affected skin daily and dry 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.
