Terbinafine effectiveness ringworm

Common Questions and Answers about Terbinafine effectiveness ringworm


Avatar f tn Lamisil is an antifungal which contains Terbinafine hydrochloride. Fungal infections of the skin, ringworm, Tinea cruris, Tinea pedis and fungal infection of the nails all respond well to this drug. This drug is usually indicated in conditions where treatment by mouth is necessary due to the severity, site or extent of the infection. The length of treatment depends on the infection being treated.
Avatar n tn So, using terbinafine (Lamisil cream) should work if that is what it is. But the best thing to do is to have your doctor have it cultured. They can do a skin scraping of an area and send it to the lab. That way you don't just keep using many different medications. If it isn't Candida albicans some of the other yeasts are very resistant and you really need to know what it is. Usually, fungi cause a lot of itching and not pain.
Avatar f tn I'll give you a diagnosis right now. It's RINGWORM. I had the same exact thing for 8-9 months before I realized what it was. Cleared up after just 4 days of over the counter clotrimazole 1% cream.Turns out I also have tinea corporis with the typical rings that were really really faint in color so i didn't recognize it. I'd been really itchy all over my torso since about the time these painful boils started popping up over my face. The funny thing is that the boils didn't really itch.
Avatar f tn I am also taking an anti-fungal oral pill (for about 2 months as well) because my toenail fell off and I didn't want to get a fungus. Its called Terbinafine. I also take a Kirkland brand multi-vitamin each day. As far as my diet, well, I started eating a high-protein, lots of fruits & veggies diet about a month ago, but about 2 weeks ago, fell off the wagon. (lol) I don't eat "bad" per say, but more junkier than I should.
