Is terbinafine 1% topical cream enough for interdigital tinea pedis? Give some tips to prevent recurrence

Is terbinafine 1% topical cream enough for interdigital tinea pedis? Give some tips to prevent recurrence

Maybe: There are many treatment alternatives. Lamisil (terbinafine) topical is as good a start as any other topical. Other otc preparations have different chemicals and could be tried after after one month of no results. Moisture is a large factor so I recommend an anti fungal powder in the mornings. Exfoliating skin is another factor s the intertiginous spaces needs to be scrubbed. Withoutresults see a podiatrist. ...Read more

I used Lamisil (terbinafine) in my fungal infec. But doesn't effect on it. Wat other cream I should use stronger than this.?

See Your Doc: It may not be a fungal infection that you are trying to treat, if it has not gotten better with the lamasil. If it is a fungus, it may require stronger prescription meds or oral meds. It may be residual skin changes from the infection, a bacterial infection, psoriasis, lupus, other skin diseases, even syphilis, or reinfection from an untreated source. ...Read more

I've been taking sopranox for 4 days and using Lamisil (terbinafine) cream for 5 days, how come my ringworm is still spreading?

Is really ringworm?: Is it really ringworm? I don't want to doubt your doc's expertise, but skin conditions are frequently misdiagnosed. Although, it may be a little too early to expect major improvement from the treatment you're getting for your "ringworm", at least I would not expect it to be spreading. ...Read more

What is Lamisil (terbinafine) cream and why is it usually prescribed?

What is Lamisil (terbinafine) cream and why is it usually prescribed?

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. ...Read more

Can I combine Lamisil (terbinafine) cream and tolnaftate powder for athelete s foot?

Can I combine Lamisil (terbinafine) cream and tolnaftate powder for athelete s foot?

Yes: Using two different medicines for athlete's foot is acceptable. Use one in the am, perhaps the powder to help keep feet dry during the day, and one at night, such as the Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. Faithful use of topical twice daily meds for at least 3 weeks is key to eliminating fungus. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have jock itch, have used terbinafine cream. It is disapearing but I noticed some small rash on the penis itself. Should I smear cream on the penis?

I have jock itch, have used terbinafine cream. It is disapearing but I noticed some small rash on the penis itself. Should I smear cream on the penis?

Maybe not the same: I would be hesitant to recommend for the penis because it is indicated for fungal infection in areas where skin is stronger and mainly because we don't know if what you have there is fungus. Monitor and if it gives you symptoms, consult a dermatologist. ...Read more

The ringworm on my face is now becoming very dry and flaky, I've been taking sporanox, and using Lamisil (terbinafine) cream does this mean its healing?

Most likely!: These common skin fungal infections can take a while to completely remove from the skin, so continue as your family doc or dermatologist have recommended. "ringworm" is one lay term for tinea capitis (cradle cap), tinea corporis (ringworm), tinea cruris (jock itch), tinea pedis (athlete's foot), etc., all the same skin fungus in different areas. Keep clean, dry, and use your meds as prescribed! ...Read more

Can I use a tinea cream (terbinafine hydrochloride 1%) and Vaseline? Vaseline to stop itching and barrier between my skin and clothes, on torso front.

No Problem: I see no problem with using the terbinafine cream along with vaseline ointment. However, I would suggest you apply the terbinafine first, then cover with vaseline. This will allow better treatment of the fungal infection. ...Read more
