LamisilAT Cream stops the fungus that causes jock itch

With proper use, all itching, burning and the ring-shaped rash will subside.

LamisilAT Cream is fungicidal, which means it actively works to kill the fungus that causes ringworm and not just inhibit its growth like some other treatments. Symptoms may improve after a few days but stopping ringworm treatment early could cause symptoms to reappear.

How to Treat Ringworm

LamisilAT Cream contains the active ingredient terbinafine which is fungicidal. It is formulated to stay in the skin and kill the fungus that causes the ringworm infection, not just stop it from growing.

With proper use of LamisilAT Cream, the symptoms of ringworm — such as the redness and itch — should improve after a few days. However, don’t assume your ringworm is cured just because your symptoms start to disappear.

Stick with the treatment for the full 7 days, even if your symptoms disappear, to avoid ringworm returning.
