What symptoms or conditions can be treated with Lamisil AT 1% Spray?
Lamisil AT 1% Spray is an antifungal medication used to treat skin problems caused by fungi in conditions such as athlete's foot (tinea pedis) and Dhobie itch/jock itch (tinea cruris). Athlete's foot can cause cracking or scaling of the skin and is commonly found between the toes, on the instep, soles, or other areas of the feet. Dhobie itch appears in the groin and inner thigh area and can spread further between the legs to the buttocks or up towards the stomach.

What is the active ingredient in Lamisil AT 1% Spray and how does it work?
The active ingredient in Lamisil AT 1% Spray is terbinafine, which is an antifungal used to treat skin problems caused by fungi. Terbinafine works by stopping the growth of fungi, and in turn, killing them. It works by inhibiting the enzyme called squalene epoxidase, which plays a crucial role in fungal cell membrane synthesis. By stopping this enzyme, the fungal cells cannot grow, and eventually die off, thereby curing the skin problem caused by fungi.

What is dhobie itch/jock itch?
Dhobie itch/jock itch, also known as tinea cruris, is a type of fungal infection that causes a red and itchy rash in warm and moist areas of the body, such as the groin and inner thighs. This condition is common in athletes, as well as in people who sweat excessively or are overweight. While jock itch can be uncomfortable, it is usually not serious and can be treated with proper hygiene and topical antifungal medications.
What are the symptoms of dhobie itch/jock itch?
Jock itch typically starts with a red area of skin in the groin crease and can spread to the upper thigh in a half-moon shape. The rash may have a ring-shaped appearance and be bordered by a line of small blisters. The affected area may feel itchy or burn, and the skin may appear flaky or scaly.
What is athlete's foot and what are common symptoms?
Athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis, is a fungal skin infection that typically starts between the toes. It is characterized by an itchy, scaly rash and is often caused by feet being confined in tight-fitting shoes that cause excessive sweating. This condition is contagious and can be spread through contaminated surfaces such as floors, towels or clothing.
