Irina, 44 years old: < / strong> Due to the long walking in rubber boots, first, itching and burning appeared on the sole, and then they began to peel off. For Lamisil cream in a pharmacy was deliberately on the advice of a neighbor. Although the price is too high for me, but health is more expensive. Relapse occurred on the third day of application, but the effect of softness of the skin does not hold at all. I believe that the drug copes with its responsibilities, but it is better to buy a cheaper analog.
Danila, 29 years old: < / strong> I bought Lamisil ointment when, after a public bath, I picked up a nail fungus. The advertised remedy did not help me at all, since it is not universal and does not treat all, but some types of fungus. Therefore, I recommend buying medicine only after visiting a doctor.
Larisa, 31 years old: < / strong> I use Lamisil ointment as a softening foot cream. I smear for the night, and in the morning the skin of the heels is very tender. After a couple of days of use, even the unpleasant odor from the feet disappeared, after a whole day in the shoes. Just do not forget that this drug is not cosmetic, but medicinal and has side effects from overdose, so you can not use it for a long time.loading...
