Lamisil Cream is a topical cream used to treat fungal infections of the skin. The active ingredient, terbinafine hydrochloride, kills the fungi that cause these infections. Lamisil Cream is available without a prescription, and it is easy to use. Apply a thin layer of the cream to the affected area once or twice a day, and continue treatment for 1-2 weeks after symptoms disappear.
Common fungal skin Infections
Fungal skin infections are caused by many different types of fungi, including yeasts. These infections are quite common and often cause an irritating rash.
Here we describe some of the most common fungal skin infections and how to treat them. You’ll also find information about how to avoid catching fungal infections or passing them on.
This is a really common infection. Around seven in 10 people have athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) at some point in their lives. It’s caused by a fungus that grows in the skin between your toes and on the soles of your feet. It grows easily here because the area gets moist when your feet sweat.
The skin between your toes can become itchy, flaky and red, with painful cracks, or fissures. The sole of your foot can also become itchy, thickened and scaly. You might get blisters too.
Athlete’s foot is more likely if your footwear makes your feet sweaty and you’re in a warm, humid environment. You can catch it by walking barefoot on damp, contaminated floors such as in communal bathing or swimming areas. After scratching the affected area, you can spread the infection to other parts of your body.
Despite its name, ringworm is an infection with a fungus not a worm. It gets its name because it often causes a ring-shaped rash. Ringworm infections are very common and can affect different parts of your body.
Ringworm on your body
This is most common on parts of your body that are exposed, such as your arms, legs or trunk. It causes a red, scaly, ring-shaped rash. You can catch ringworm by touching somebody who already has it or by touching contaminated items such as clothing or bedding. Animals, including cats and dogs, can also carry the ringworm fungus.
Ringworm in your groin
Ringworm in your groin causes an itchy, red rash in your groin and around the top of your legs. Also called ‘jock itch’, it’s more common in men. You’re more likely to get it if:
- your skin in this area often gets warm and damp
- you’re very overweight
- you often wear tight clothing
- you have diabetes
You’re most likely to get ringworm in your groin if you have other fungal infections. For example, about half of people who are affected also have athlete’s foot. You can spread it to other parts of your body by scratching. You can also pass it to others by direct contact or by sharing towels or clothing.
Ringworm on your scalp
You can get this at any age, but it mostly affects children. Scaly patches develop on your scalp and may be itchy. In some people, the patches become inflamed and red and have pus-filled spots. You may also develop a pus-filled area on your scalp; this is called a ‘kerion’.
You can get ringworm on your scalp by sharing a contaminated hairbrush or clothing used by somebody with the infection.
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO HELP FUNGAL INFECTIONS?
If you have a fungal skin infection, these tips may help:
- always wash your hands after treating the infection to stop it from spreading
- do not scratch the area with the infection, as this can make the infection worse
- keep the affected areas of your skin clean and dry
- do not share towels, bedsheets or combs with other people as you could spread the infection to them
- wash towels and bedding regularly
ARE THERE OTHER TREATMENTS FOR FUNGAL INFECTIONS?
There are many different antifungal medicines. Some are available to buy from a pharmacy, and others are available on prescription.
They can come as creams, gels, sprays, tablets, capsules, and liquid.

Apply the cream once or twice a day, for one to two weeks, but this will depend upon the type and area of infection.

- Unscrew the cap then gently squeeze out a small amount of the cream onto your finger.
- Apply just enough cream to form a thin layer on the affected skin and surrounding areas.
- Rub in gently. When used between the toes, buttocks or on the groin, the treated area may be covered with a light, fresh gauze strip, especially at night.
- Replace the cap on the tube and wash your hands.
Even though you will not be using Lamisil 1% w/w Cream during the second week for athlete’s foot, full skin healing after the infection has cleared will continue for up to 4 weeks.
