Lamisil AT 1% Cream is a rich soothing cream in a moisturising formula and is ideal when skin is very inflamed, dry or cracked. Lamisil At 1% Cream contains a fungicide ingredient: terbinafine, and treats Athlete’s Foot with seven daily applications on average. It’s therefore shorter than most 'anti-fungal treatments', which simply arrest the development of the fungus and can take up to four weeks to get rid of the condition.
Lamisil AT 1% Cream is also used for the treatment of candida skin infections, while relieving the itching, burning, cracking and scaling. Each of these conditions is an infection of the outer layer of skin caused by fungus. Athlete's foot can occur between the toes or on the bottom or sides of foot. The symptoms of athlete's foot may include redness, painful cracking of the skin, an annoying itching and/or a burning sensation. You may also see blisters.
For athlete's foot and dhobie itch, apply the cream once a day, for one week.
Cleanse and dry the affected areas thoroughly and wash your hands. Treatment can be helped by keeping the affected areas clean by regular washing and careful drying with your own clean towels and clothes, and not rubbing or scratching the skin.
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 AT 1% Cream during the second week, full skin healing after the infection has cleared will continue for up to 4 weeks. If you have not noticed any signs of improvement within 2 weeks of first starting treatment, please seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist.
