Description

Lamisil 1% Spray contains 10 mg of the active ingredient terbinafine hydrochloride per 1 g spray solution.
Indications/Uses
Lamisil is used to treat tinea pedis (athlete's foot) and tinea cruris.
If the patient is not sure about the cause of infection, the patient should tell the physician or pharmacist before using Lamisil.
Dosage/Direction for Use
Tinea pedis (Athlete's foot): apply once a day for one week.
Tinea cruris: apply once a day for one week.
Use Lamisil for the recommended one-week treatment period even if the infection seems to be better after a few days. Infections usually appear to improve within a few days, but may reappear if Lamisil is not applied regularly or is stopped too early.
Lamisil should start to improve the patient's skin condition in a few days. However, complete healing of the damaged skin after the infection has cleared up will take longer, possibly up to 4 weeks. Lamisil will continue to work even after the patient has completed the one-week treatment. Even though the patient will not be using Lamisil, improvement should continue.
Consult the physician if there is no improvement after the use of medicines for a week.
Administration: Cream: When the tube is sealed, pierce the seal using the spike in the top of the cap. Clean and dry the affected skin and surrounding areas, and wash hands. Open the tube and place a small amount of cream on the finger. Replace the cap on the tube. Apply just enough cream to put a thin layer on the affected skin and the skin directly surrounding it. Rub in gently.
Wash hands after touching the infected skin, to avoid spreading the infection.
Spray: 1. Clean and dry the affected skin and surrounding areas, and wash hands.
2. Remove the cap from the bottle and turn it up side down to spray.
3. When using the spray bottle for the first time, press the pump a few times until an even spray is achieved.
4. For manipulation of the spray pump the bottle can be held in the upright or inverted position.
5. Spray enough of the solution to thoroughly wet the affected skin and surrounding areas.
6. Replace the cap on the bottle.
Wash hands after touching the infected skin, to avoid spreading the infection.
If the patient is treating an infection in folded areas of the body, the patient can cover the treated area with a gauze strip, especially at night. If the patient does, he/she should use a fresh, clean gauze strip each time applying the spray.
