Lamisil Cream Uses

Lamisil cream is a topical antifungal medication composed of Terbinafine. It is used to treat fungal infections of the skin, such as athlete's foot (tinea pedis), jock itch (tinea cruris), and ringworm (tinea corporis).

Lamisil cream works by inhibiting the growth of fungi, which helps to eliminate the infection and alleviate the associated symptoms. It is usually applied topically to the affected area(s) of the skin, and it may need to be used for several weeks to treat the infection. Your doctor will determine the appropriate treatment duration based on your condition's severity.

The primary use of Lamisil cream is to treat fungal infections of the skin, including:

  • Athlete's foot (tinea pedis): This is a common fungal infection that affects the feet, causing symptoms such as itching, burning, and skin scaling.
  • Jock itch (tinea cruris): This fungal infection affects the groin area and causes itching, redness, and a rash.
  • Ringworm (tinea corporis): This is a fungal infection that can affect various body parts, including the scalp, face, and body. It causes circular, red, scaly patches on the skin.

Lamisil cream is also sometimes used to treat other fungal infections, such as fungal nail infections, but it is not typically the first-line treatment for these conditions.
