Ointment remarkably helps from a foot fungus. On personal experience, I became convinced that there was no point in spending money on expensive drugs, since terbinafin perfectly coped with my problem. Irina

I learned about the presence of fungus on my feet from my pedicure master. I had a slight itch, but I could not even imagine that it was a fungus! I ran to the pharmacy, bought Terbinafine, inflicted and thought that it was about to itch and the burning sensation intensified, but this did not happen! After a week of use, I realized that there was no more fungus! Tamara

  • Gregory :

    Hello. Can Terbinafin cream help with an allergy in the groin?

  • sarin :

    Terbinafine can help with depriving?! Women who have? For a week, you can get rid of itching and damage to the skin of the body ??

    • Doc :


      If the diagnosis is correct, it will help, not only in a week, but in two. Even if the symptoms are gone, you need to continue to smear.

      If the scalp is affected, it is best to use an antifungal shampoo.

  • Victor :

    Terbinafine (ointment in a tube), it did not help me in the photo of the Belmedpreparata concern, I will use clotrimazole, preferably of European origin, or miconazole has good reviews.

  • Natalia :

    I have such a problem. I am 35 years old. Six months ago, they diagnosed mycosis of the scalp and milk glands. Appointed: Itrungar drink for 15 days, apply Zinovit shampoo on the head and lotion Bifon - on the mammary glands for 1 month, iron the laundry. Worn out, underwent a course of treatment. The test results showed the presence of fungi in moderate quantities on the scalp and on the mammary glands (before the treatment there were a significant amount). The doctor throws up his hands and does not know what to appoint next. He says that such strong drugs, if they help, they help immediately. I decided to take another course of treatment with these drugs. And now during the treatment with horror I notice that a disgusting itch appeared in the eyebrows, and the nails of the hands became exfoliated and stripes appeared on two or three fingers. Has the fungus been transferred now to them? I, after all, have spent months without my gloves on my head. And the doctor didn't tell me anything about it. Tell me, please, can the fungus from the scalp eventually go to the nails of the hands?

    What should I do? I read that people successfully treat mycosis of the scalp with Lamisil, drink the tablets for a month (1 tablet per day) and get rid of this filth. Such treatment is prescribed for children of kindergarten age. Where did I get this mycosis from, I still will not attach my mind. Tell me, please, can such a treatment help me in my situation — by drinking Lamisil alone without using shampoos? Lamisil is a very expensive drug, suddenly it will not help me. Is it possible to replace it with an analogue - Terbinafine? And how do I protect my hands? Wash your head in gloves? Help me please.

    • Doc :


      Spores of fungi spread everywhere, if you have mycosis of the scalp, then there are spores throughout the house. Hygiene and wet cleaning help fight this, but if you are so actively spreading mycosis, you may have problems with the immune system, some systemic diseases. Try to pass an immunogram and consult the results with a doctor.

      Lamisil or Terbinafine can be tried, as you wrote, 1 tab / day for a month. At the same time, it is also necessary to use shampoo during the whole treatment, but not every day, 2-3 times a week. On other days, if necessary, you can wash the usual shampoo.

  • Anna :

    Hello, I started to treat nail fungus with bifosin, but there was little left and continued with terbinafine. Isn't that scary that I replaced? And also for the ointment is also important that you can not combine with alcohol? And tell me, can there be a connection between thrush and nail fungus, and then it is worth starting a systemic treatment. Many questions, but I hope to answer

    • Doc :


      It rarely happens that a fungus is resistant to some kind of ointment. If the result is not, change the medicine back, and so do not worry. Alcohol does not affect local drugs.

      Communication with thrush of course maybe go to the doctor, perhaps prescribed pills.

  • Anna :

    Hello! Found a fungus like not strong on the neck and armpits! Assigned terbinofin cream! But I have a baby for him 5 months and I breastfeed! The instructions can not be written with Guards! Is there a large amount of milk in the milk? And what could be terrible with a child? I just need to treat him anyway, but I don’t want Pts to turn off.

    • Doc :


      The cream can be applied, only wash your hands with soap after application and see that it does not fall on the nipples and next to them.

  • Rose :

    Hello, Doctor!
    My son has ringworm on the scalp. He is two years old. The doctor prescribed methylene to smear it and then ointment with tabinafine. When smearing ointment I notice a little rash around the sore, probably an allergic reaction. And now I read that there are restrictions on age. What to do? We suffer for three months. Thank you in advance!

    • Doc :


      Here, no inspection can be advised. See the doctor for a rash, ask for ketoconazole, a more benign preparation, if possible.
