Treatment Information

What is Lamisil?

Lamisil is a brand of antifungal treatment from GlaxoSmithKline( GSK) that is available as a 1% cream or gel.

It is used to treat various fungal skin infections, such as athlete's foot, ringworm and jock itch, and fungal infections of fingernails or toenails.

Lamisil contains the active ingredient terbinafine.

Prescription Doctor stocks both the brand and generic formulations. If you are unsure which one is most suitable for you, our online doctors can discuss our range of treatments with you.

What are ringworm, jock itch, and athlete's foot?

Ringworm (tinea corporis), Dhobie itch/jock itch (tinea cruris) and athlete's foot (tinea pedis) are skin infections caused by fungi pathogens. These infections are contagious and should be treated as soon as possible to avoid infecting other people.

Fungal skin infections can spread to other parts of the body. This commonly occurs with athlete's foot and fungal nail infections. The fungi of athlete's foot between the toes can spread to the toenail, resulting in a fungal nail infection. Similarly, a ringworm infection which spreads to your groin area is commonly referred to as jock itch.

Symptoms of a fungal skin infection include:

  • Bald spots on scalp
  • Blisters
  • Broken skin
  • Discolouration of nails
  • Itching skin
  • Peeling skin
  • Raised ring shaped rash
  • Scaling or flaky skin

While the condition can be uncomfortable, it is important to resist the urge of scratching infected rashes, as this increases the risk of spreading the infection to other parts of your body.

Fungal infections can be easily treated with over-the-counter and prescription medicines. Lamisil is one such treatment for fungal skin infections, such as ringworm, jock itch and athlete's foot.

With Prescription Doctor, you can order Lamisil 1% cream or gel from our UK registered pharmacy.

Simply complete our online questionnaire for one of our doctors to review. If your order is approved by our doctor before 3pm on weekdays, our pharmacy will dispense and dispatch your item the same day via a next-day delivery.

All medicines dispatched from our pharmacy are packaged discreetly to ensure your privacy when you buy Lamisil online.

How does Lamisil work?

Lamisil works to treat fungi infections. Lamisil's active ingredient, terbinafine hydrochloride, inhibits squalene epoxidase in fungal cells, affecting their ability to make the sterols necessary for their survival.

As a result, treatment with Lamisil causes the fungal cells to die. As the fungus is killed by the medicine, the related symptoms, such as itching and rash, subside.

Depending on the location of the infection, the severity of the infection, and the treatment used to treat it, the time it takes for the infection to be killed can vary from a few weeks to a few months.

Lamisil Cream

Lamisil cream is applied topically and is absorbed by the skin.

The cream helps to sooth the itching caused by the infection, providing relief from the discomfort. This also indirectly helps to reduce the chances of the infection spreading to other parts of the body through scratching.

How long does it take for Lamisil 1% cream to work?

Depending on the type of fungal infection you have, it may take up to two weeks before you begin to notice a difference using Lamisil cream.

Typically, you should start to notice an improvement in your symptoms after two to three days of treatment. Other fungal infections, such as ringworm and jock itch, may take up to two weeks before an improvement is seen.

Speak to your doctor or a pharmacist if you do not notice an improvement after 2 weeks of treatment with Lamisil cream.

Lamisil Tablet

Lamisil tablets are taken orally.

Once ingested, terbinafine hydrochloride interferes with the fungal cells ability to produce the enzyme they need to survive.

How long does it take for Lamisil 250 mg tablets to work?

It can take between six and twelve weeks for Lamisil 250 mg tablets to work.

If you have any concerns about how long it should take before you notice an improvement of your symptoms, speak to your GP or pharmacist.

How do I use Lamisil Cream?

Lamisil Cream for Adults

Always use Lamisil Cream as prescribed by your doctor.

  1. Before applying the cream, cleanse the skin and pat the area dry with a clean towel. Avoid rubbing the affected area dry as this can cause unnecessary irritation.
  2. Wash your hands before touching the cream.
  3. Unscrew the lid on the Lamisil tube and squeeze out enough cream onto your finger to form a thin layer over the infected area.
  4. Apply the cream to the affected area creating a thin layer of the medication. Rub the medicine in gently to help the skin absorb the cream.
  5. For infections between the toes, such as athlete's foot, or on the groin or buttocks, such as jock itch, you may apply a light, fresh gauze.
  6. Always wash your hands after applying the cream.

What should I do if I accidentally apply more Lamisil 1% cream than I should?

If you accidentally apply more Lamisil cream to your skin, wipe away the excess with a tissue and safely discard it out of reach from children and pets.

Using more Lamisil cream than you should will not treat your infection faster, but may increase your risk of side effects.

If you are unsure about how much cream you should apply to your infection, ask a doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Lamisil Tablets

Follow the doctor's instructions for dosage.

The typical dose for adults is one 250mg tablet per day.

Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water.

Lamisil tablets can be taken with or without food.

It is important to continue taking Lamisil tablets for as long as the doctor tells you to. This will ensure the medicine kills the infection. Stopping treatment too soon can risk the infection coming back.

What should I do if I take more Lamisil 250 mg tablets at one time?

If you accidentally take more Lamisil 250 mg tablets than you should, seek treatment at the nearest accident and emergency department as soon as possible. Remember to take the packaging and any remaining medicine with you.

What should I do if I miss a dose of Lamisil?

If you miss a dose of Lamisil, take or apply the dose as soon as you remember. Continue to take or apply Lamisil as you normally would. Do not take or apply more Lamisil to make up for the missed dose.
