From antimycotics I use only Lamisil. The cost is average and works well against any fungus. Well, except perhaps thrush, but there are special preparations. I am a nurse by profession, so I know what I'm talking about, I advise everyone. The difference between the gel and the cream is not really big, the instructions say that treatment is 1 week, usually so much is required. In fact, it is necessary to smear another 3-4 days after the symptoms disappeared. Olga, Moscow

I always keep in the first-aid kit. For the first time when my husband picked up a foot fungus, he was prescribed another ointment. Rubbed 2 weeks, the stain has decreased but did not completely disappear. We tried lamizil - after a week there was no trace left. Valentina, Tomsk region

I work in the north. On the last watch I picked up the fungus, the conditions there are suitable - there are many people closely, a common shower. He paid attention only when he was going to go to the next watch. The foot itches constantly and the stain, tackle, barely noticeable shows through. Wife ran to the pharmacy, bought a tube, anointed - feel better. He took with him and left there. Sometimes smear for prevention. Michael, Bratislava

I tried several different ointments when the child was diagnosed with “deprive”. Lamisil helps best, I advise everyone. Vika, Moscow

    Tell the comb in your ears this ointment can be smeared?

  • Lyudmila :

    Will the gel help? The thumbnail on the right has gone, I smear 2 times a day, and I have been drinking terbinafine for the third week

    • Doc :


      The nail goes away for various reasons. If it is a fungus, the gel will help. Back the nail does not grow, but gradually the disease will go away, you need to apply, until a healthy nail grows.

      Do not get carried away with pills, they are taken in courses, you cannot take them for a long time.

      And of course, it is best to visit a doctor with this problem, not to delay.
