Fungal infection
My husband has a recrurring fungal infection in his toes. He used a generic fom of the Pevaryl Tablets last year which helped immensely. But we have since been unable to get these as the pharmicist who sold it to us, did not document it. It was an oval white tablet that resembled the Mybulin tablets.
Please advise what tablet this could have been or what tablets are suitable.

Thanks

Hi Shanel

The reason why the pharmacist didnt document this is because oral anti-fungal drugs are available on prescription only. There are quite a few options available, but these have to be prescribed by your doctor. It may have been Lamisil, Lamispor, Nizoral or something similar.
