Terbinafine vs clotrimazole

Common Questions and Answers about Terbinafine vs clotrimazole

lamisil

The best known sign of ringworm in people is the appearance of one or more red raised itchy patches with defined edges. Topical antifungal drugs containing miconazole and clotrimazole, available by prescription or over the counter, are used to clear up the infection. Fungal infections can take weeks or months to clear up. Terbinafine is highly effective for Tinea corporis. It treats itching, burning, cracking, and scaling that accompany this condition. ref:http://www.medic8.
What's the difference you may ask, the Lamisil's active ingredient is Terbinafine Hydrochloride, and the Lotrimin's active ingredient is Clotrimazole. Big lesson learned on that one. So, knowing it's not a fungus I've been researching like mad this morning and have found no answers other than everyone has their own theories. So, what I'm saying is that if you've read this, then here's something I've found that soothes it (for me at least). Lamisil for Jock Itch (Terbinafine Hydrochloride).
