What is Lamisil Gel?
Lamisil Gel is a treatment for athlete’s foot which provides relief from symptoms while tackling the cause of infection and providing lasting protection. It relieves itching and burning around the affected area, freeing you from discomfort caused by athlete’s foot or jock itch.
What causes athlete’s foot?
Athlete’s foot is caused by fungi which live on your skin. When these fungi are given a warm, moist environment (like between your toes if your feet sweat a lot and you wear tight fitting shoes) they thrive, causing infection in your skin. This is how you get athlete’s foot.
How does Lamisil Gel help to treat athlete’s foot?
Lamisil Gel contains the active ingredient terbinafine, which works as an antifungal agent. This means it works to tackle the fungi which cause athlete’s foot or other fungal skin infections, treating the cause of the infection. It also helps to soothe symptoms of itching and burning caused by infection.
How to use Lamisil Gel.
Apply Lamisil Gel once a day for one week. Before using Lamisil Gel, wash your hands and make sure the affected area is clean and dry. Apply a small amount of Lamisil Gel to the affected area and rub in gently. Wash your hands after using Lamisil Gel.

I have ringworm around moustache area would i be able to use this because it says dont use on face?
The main symptom of ringworm is a rash. It may look red, silver or darker than surrounding skin, depending on your skin tone. The rash may be scaly, dry, swollen or itchy. Ringworm can appear anywhere on the body, including the scalp (tinea capitis) and groin (jock itch). I would recommend on trying clotrimazole cream 1%, as the gels may sting
