How to use Terbinafine Cream
Use this medication on the skin only. Clean and thoroughly dry the area to be treated.

If you are uncertain about any of the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Wash your hands after using unless the area being treated includes the hands. Do not wrap, cover, or bandage the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.
