It is important to consider the risk/benefits in case of suffering from onychomycosis. Patients with onychomycosis are less likely to show a favorable response to therapy with terbinafine for tinea pedis plantar.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Apply on clean, dry skin. Do not apply to eyes, mucous membranes or vaginal infections. Pregnancy and lactation: Do not use unless prescribed. The active substance is excreted in milk. Do not allow infants to come into contact with HONGOFIN-treated skin, including chest. Patients sensitive to oral terbinafine may also be sensitive to topical terbinafine. HONGOFIN cream must not be used in children under 12 years. Use in elderly patients requires no special precautions. Finish therapy. Fungal infections may require prolonged therapy. Do not cover with occlusive dressing unless directed by the doctor. If irritation or eventual sensitization occurs while using HONGOFIN, discontinue use and consult a doctor. Consult a physician if no improvement occurs after a week of treatment. Take hygienic measures to help cure the infection and prevent re-infection.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Rare, but may require medical attention: dryness, redness, pruritus, burning, peeling, rash, itching, tingling or other signs of skin irritation not present before use of terbinafine cream.
