What is Terbinafine Cream?

Terbinafine cream, which goes by the brand name Lamisil cream, is used for treating patients with certain yeast and fungal infections of their skin. It attacks and kills the yeast or fungus that's causing your infection.

How Does Terbinafine Cream Work?

Terbinafine hydrochloride is the active ingredient in this cream and is an antifungal medication. It causes holes in the fungal cell membranes to develop which kills the fungi causing the infection.

The fungi cell membranes are important for their survival. They stop the cells' contents from leaking out and keep unwanted substances from invading the cells. By causing the holes to show up in the cell membranes, Terbinafine clears the infection as it kills the fungi.

How Do I Use Terbinafine Cream?

Clean the affected skin area and dry it thoroughly before you apply the cream. Rub the cream into your skin and then wash your hands so you don't spread the infection to other body areas or to other people. Avoid getting any of the cream in your mouth, eyes or nose. Using water, rinse it out thoroughly if you do get it in any of these areas accidentally.

How long should I use Terbinafine cream for?

Your doctor will let you know how much Terbinafine cream you should use and how long you should use it for. This will normally be one or two weeks for jock itch or ringworm, one week for athlete's foot and two weeks for candidiasis or pityriasis.

It's essential to complete the whole course of treatment even if your symptoms clear up. If you stop prematurely, you risk having your infection come back. Infections typically start improving in a few days after starting to use Terbinafine cream; however, they could reappear if you don't apply the cream regularly or if you stop using it too early.

Who Should Not Use Terbinafine Cream?

Most individuals can use Terbinafine cream. However, check with your doctor before taking if you are pregnant or think you're pregnant or if you're breastfeeding.

Don't use Terbinafine cream if you are allergic to any of the active or inactive ingredients of the medicine.

Terbinafine Cream Side Effects and Cautions

Like all medications, Terbinafine cream could cause side effects, but not all people experience them. If you experience any of these extremely rare allergic reactions, stop using the medicine and get medical help right away:

  • Severe skin itching with raised lumps, blisters or hives or a red rash.
  • Difficulty swallowing or breathing, swelling of the face, mouth, throat, tongue or lips.

Common: (might affect up to 1 in 10 individuals):

  • Skin itching
  • Peeling

Uncommon: (might affect up to 1 in 100 individuals):

  • Skin colour changes
  • Scab
  • Lesions
  • Burning
  • Redness
  • Irritation and pain at the application site

These side effects, both common and uncommon, are typically harmless and you can continue using the cream.

Rare: (might affect up to 1 in 1000 individuals):

  • Dry skin
  • Eye irritation
  • Eczema
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Worsening of symptoms

If you experience any side effects, let your doctor know or contact your nearest pharmacy for advice. Alternatively, you can dial 111 for professional advice on what to do if you experience side effects.

Does Terbinafine interact with other medicines?

While Terbinafine cream isn't known to affect other medications, let your doctor know if you're taking any other medications or have recently, including over-the-counter medicines.

Let your doctor know if you're taking any other medications or have recently, including over-the-counter medicines.

If your doctor tells you it's okay to take Terbinafine cream along with your other medications, if you have to use another topical medication on the same skin area, it's best to wait for a few minutes before you apply the second medication. This will give each medication time to absorb and will avoid them diluting on your skin or mixing together.

Can I take Terbinafine while pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not take terbinafine. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist for further assistance.

Always keep medicines out of the sight and reach of children and pets.

Never share your medicine with anybody else, even if they are exhibiting the same symptoms as you.
