Antifungal: Lamisil (terbinafine) is antifungal but has poor anti yeast properties. Creams which are more effective for yeast include miconazole, kopeks, ketoconazole, and nystatin. It is also used orally for extensive fungus infection or over a three month period with monitoring for toenail fungus.
