Lamisil Once - Fastest treatment for Athlete’s Foot

Updated on January 28, 2015

Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) is a form of ringworm fungus which affects the webbing between the toes. One of the most common fungi to affect the toes, it spreads easily and is very difficult to get rid of. It starts off as a mild burning/itching sensation but if not treated in time, can be distressing due to pain and a lot of itching.


Athlete’s foot usually presents the following symptoms:

A rash between toes, known as ‘Toe Web’
Itchy scaling
Burning sensations
Thickening on soles
Peeling or flaking skin
Cracked and sore skin
Blisters, if untreated for long

Lamisil Once, A Single Application Treatment


The fungus causing Athlete’s foot flourishes in dark, warm and moist environments like:

Swimming pool
Locker rooms
Gym shower stall
Nail salons

The tinea pedis colonies can easily be transferred from person to person or from the infected surfaces.

And so, contrary to its name, it doesn’t necessarily affect only athletes. It can affect anyone with sweaty feet.


Over the counter medications like certain antifungal creams and ointments effectively relieve inflammation and irritation. These medications usually contain the active ingredient Tolnaftate, Terbinafine or Miconazole. Lamisil is one such OTC which is very effective in the treatment of fungus.

However, with the latest product from the Lamisil range, Lamisil Once, you will be able to finally get rid of Athlete’s foot without much fuss.

The other Lamisil products can be used for treating other conditions like the Jock Itch or ringworm but Lamisil Once only treats Athlete’s foot.

The Way it Works

Lamisil Once, like the other products in the Lamisil range, contains the same active ingredient with kills the fungi infecting the feet. The only difference being the duration of its application. On application over the affected areas, mainly between the toes, Lamisil Once forms an invisible film which lets an active ingredient fight the infection continuously for a long time without any additional application of the cream. The film fades in around 3 days but by then the ingredient gets completely absorbed by the skin and it continues to work within. Lamisil Once starts killing the fungus immediately after its application, however, your skin might need around 3-4 weeks to heal.
