The most inexpensive antifungal agent is considered to be salicylic ointment. Its value varies from 20 to 25 rubles. Agree to such treatment. Salicylici (in common) has a lot of advantages:
- a broad spectrum of action;
- low cost;
- versatility (suitable for nearly all);
- a relatively simple method of use.
The only drawback of the drug is the need of combining it with a stronger and more focused means. If this is not done, the cure to stop fungal growth will be problematic. Salicilico don’t end up killing the fungi.
Salicilico removes keratinized epidermis. For this purpose it is enough to apply every 24 hours. The rate of application of ointments is approximately 5 days. During this time, the feet will be moisturized and supple for further treatment of the fungus.

When using salicylici need to make sure that the medication in no case did not get on mucous membranes. These sensitive tissues of the body can significantly be affected, as calicella acts very aggressively.
It is also not recommended to use in all periods of carrying the baby and during breast feeding.

- then dry with a towel;
- apply ointment to the affected areas by the fungus 2-3 times a day.
The duration of application is 4-6 weeks on average. Some ill with managed to cure athlete’s foot with this remedy for two weeks. This can happen only if the form of fungal infection was not running.
Lamisil is a classic antifungal agent
Reviews about Lamisile almost always positive. All noted its high effectiveness and quick result.
A reliable drug struggling with almost all types of fungi that cause athlete’s foot stop. Perhaps this is the most effective against different types of fungal infections.
The drug has virtually no contraindications. However, it should be noted that it should be applied with caution in:

Apply lamisil need in the following way: prepare the legs (wash and dry); apply a thin layer; massage until fully absorbed.
To completely get rid of the fungal infection stop using Lamizila require 2-4 weeks. Agree, it is a little, especially when compared with the previous medication.
The epidermis may improve after a week of use, but despite this, stop not worth it. Lamisil is the best ointment for mycotic lesions of the feet and nails.
