Lamisil Once FAQs
It is an active anti-fungal cream which fights a condition known as athlete’s foot (also called tinea pedis).
While it may appear that only one foot is infected, the majority of people find that not treating both feet causes re-infection so, as directed, use Lamisil Once on both feet.
Though you don’t yet seem to be experiencing the symptoms all over both feet, athlete’s foot could have already started to infect what appears to be clear skin. Treating only the visibly affected areas could mean that the fungal infection may not be fully eliminated, allowing the easy spread or return of the condition. To prevent re-infection, always apply Lamisil Once® as professionally directed.
No other treatment is as fast for athlete’s foot. Lamisil Once can be applied quickly and easily onto the affected areas and its gentle formula quickly eases the irritation caused by the tinea pedis fungal infection.
Lamisil Once is for external use only and should therefore only be applied to the outside of the body. Washing your hands thoroughly after application is an important procedure, as not doing so could bring about infecting other parts of your body. Never apply Lamisil Once near your eyes or even touch your eyes, whilst the cream is still on your hands. Should the cream somehow enter your eyes, rinse them thoroughly with clean running water and, if irritation occurs, see your doctor immediately.
Wash your feet and body regularly during the day and be sure to dry yourself well afterwards. Infection can also spread to towels, wash clothes and sponges, bed linen and personal clothing, during the treatment period, so change these regularly. Also, avoid scratching the affected area, as this could transfer the infection to your hands.
The quantity in each tube is measured for a single application and so contains just enough cream for both feet.
As its name states, Lamisil Once® need be applied just once as, if applied correctly and to both feet, terbinafine, the active ingredient in Lamisil Once®stays in the skin, and continues fighting the infection, for up to thirteen days.
For maximum effectiveness, your feet need to remain dry for twenty four hours, which is why you shouldn’t shower before this set time, or indeed involve yourself in any activities which could cause dampness to your feet e.g. any water sports.
Other Lamisil® products require seven days of application for treating athlete's foot. Also, other Lamisilproducts treat other fungal conditions e.g. jock itch and ringworm. As a one day only treatment, Lamisil Once® is recommended for athlete's foot (tinea between the toes) only.
Once applied, Lamisil Once® produces a glove-like film which attaches itself to the toes, a film so adhesive, that it doesn’t wash off, even if you use soap and water. This gives terbinafine, the active ingredient, around thirteen days to be absorbed into the foot, before the film finally wears off.
The infection should clear within thirteen days, though damaged skin can take up to a month to heal.
Lamisil Once® is to be used only by people over the age of eighteen and so kept out of the reach of children. Breast-feeding mothers should not use it and users must make sure the cream does not come into contact with their eyes. Should you suffer any reaction when using Lamisil Once®, contact your doctor, so as to ascertain whether you may be allergic to any ingredients. Also, when Lamisil Once® has been applied, do not put on socks or shoes, until it has been left to dry for at least a couple of minutes, having allowed it time to make that glove-like film which works at removing the infection.
Lamisil Once gives protection for up to three months after application. In order to prevent another infection, you need to air your feet properly and keep them fresh and clean at all times. Be diligent about any sweating or moisture on your feet and between your toes, to keep any new infection from re-occurring.
Lamisil Once is specific to athlete’s foot and is the Lamisil product that an Express Chemist would recommend for this particular fungal condition. That’s because it’s very easy to use and requires just one single application. However, you could also use Lamisil AT, as it contains the same active ingredient, though you would need to apply it every day.
If, when applied correctly, Lamisil Once® doesn’t seem to clear the infection of athlete’s foot, speak with your doctor, as you may have a different fungal infection, or there could be a deeper underlying condition.
Apply the whole tube as, once it is open, it is not designed for keeping. Remember to apply Lamisil Once® to both feet, or you run the risk of maybe not truly clearing the infection. In around eighty percent of cases, both feet fall to this infection and so it is important that you apply Lamisil Once to the whole of both feet. This should use up all of the cream in the tube.
