1. What Lamisil AT 1% Gel is and what it is used for

Lamisil AT 1% Gel contains the active ingredient terbinafine which is an antifungal used to treat skin problems caused by fungi in:

• Athlete's foot (tinea pedis) - athlete's foot appears only on the feet (usually both, but not always), where it often appears in-between the toes. It can also appear on the instep, soles, or other areas of the feet. The most common type of athlete’s foot


causes cracking or scaling of the skin, but you may also have mild swelling, blisters, or weeping ulcers. Lamisil AT 1% Gel is recommended for athlete’s foot when it occurs between the toes. If you have a fungal nail infection (fungus inside and under the nail) with discolouration of the nails and changes in nail texture (thick or flaky), you should consult your doctor because Lamisil AT 1% Gel is not appropriate for this type of infection.

•    Dhobie itch/jock itch (tinea cruris) - Dhobie itch appears in the groin and inner thigh area, usually on both sides but often with one side more than the other, where it can spread further between the legs to the buttocks, or up towards the stomach. Dhobie itch looks like a clearly bordered rash, which may have blisters.

•    Ringworm (tinea corporis) - Ringworm usually appears as circular, sharp-edged areas of red rash, with dry, scaly or crusty patches towards the edges. Lamisil AT 1% Gel is suitable for ringworm occurring on the trunk of the body, legs, arm, neck or head, but not face.

2. Before you use Lamisil AT 1% Gel

•    an allergy (hypersensitivity) to any of the ingredients in the product (see Section 6 and end of Section 2).

•    Unscrew the cap - If using the medicine for the first time, use the point in the cap to pierce the top of the tube then gently squeeze out the gel.

•    Rub the gel in lightly to the affected skin and surrounding areas (avoid application to where alcohol could cause stinging or irritation). When used between the toes, buttocks or on the groin, the treated area may be covered with a light, fresh gauze strip, especially at night.

•    Replace the cap on the tube and wash your hands.

Even though you will not be using Lamisil AT 1 % Gel during the second week, full skin healing after the infection has cleared will continue for up to 4 weeks. If you have not noticed any signs of improvement within 2 weeks of first starting treatment, please seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist.

Children under 16 years NOT recommended.

If you accidently swallow Lamisil AT 1% Gel

Contact your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department if you, or someone else, has swallowed some gel. Take any remaining medicine and this leaflet with you if possible.

Symptoms of accidental ingestion include headache, nausea (feeling sick), dizziness and stomach pain.

If you forget to use Lamisil AT 1% Gel

If you miss an application, apply the gel as soon as possible then carry on as before. If you only remember at the time of your next application, just apply the gel and carry on as normal. It is important to try to use the gel at the correct times as forgotten applications could risk the infection returning.

If you stop using Lamisil AT 1% Gel

You should not stop using the gel before the recommended time as this may reduce the effectiveness of treatment or the infection may


return. If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
