Lamisil Derm Gel (terbinafine) is used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm, jock itch and athlete's foot. The gel provides instant soothing relief and clears up most fungal infections in just a week.
For fungal infections of the fingernails, toenails and scalp, Lamisil Tablets are more effective. Lamisil Derm Gel should not be used directly on mucous membranes, open wounds or on skin with a viral or bacterial infection.
The Lamisil Difference
There are a lot of topical antifungal treatments on the market, and while they all work, some are definitely better than others. The active ingredient in Lamisil Derm Gel, terbinafine, is one of the fastest-acting topical antifungal agents available. Unlike most creams or gels, which need to be applied two or more times per day for several weeks, terbinafine clears up most fungal infections in just one week with only one application per day.
Among topical terbinafine products, Lamisil Derm Gel stands out in quality. It is easily applied even to very hairy areas, such as the groin, and the gel dries quickly without leaving a greasy or oily residue behind. Once applied, Lamisil Derm Gel rapidly provides soothing, cooling relief from itchiness and other irritations associated with fungal infections.
Topical application of antifungal medications are preferred whenever possible due to the decreased risk of serious side effects. Side effects associated with terbinafine creams or gels are mild itching, burning or tingling at the application site. These symptoms typically pass very quickly and are only cause for concern if severe or persistent.
Using Lamisil Derm Gel
Lamisil Derm Gel is easy and convenient to use, but some care should be taken to prevent reinfection. Anything that comes into contact with infected skin can reintroduce the infection; clothing, towels, washcloths, bedding, nail clippers and any other items that may have contacted infected skin should be cleaned or disposed of after contact. The infection can also be spread to others if they come into contact with contaminated items.
Skin should be clean and dry before administering Lamisil Derm Gel:
Relief from symptoms should begin just moments after application. The infection should begin to noticeably clear up after a day or two of use, and in most cases are completely gone within a week. Stubborn infections may take longer, but as long as some improvement is evident treatment may continue for up to four weeks. If no improvement is noticed after several days of use, or if the condition worsens during treatment, discontinue use and speak with a doctor about alternative options.
Precautions Before Use
The vast majority of patients can use Lamisil Derm Gel without any problems. However, there are some scenarios in which extra caution should be used to prevent adverse reactions; speak with a doctor before using this product if:
Though a very safe product when used topically, the gel can be toxic if ingested. If children or pets consume Lamisil Derm Gel it should be treated as a medical emergency.
Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional.
