Yes: Using two different medicines for athlete's foot is acceptable. Use one in the am, perhaps the powder to help keep feet dry during the day, and one at night, such as the Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. Faithful use of topical twice daily meds for at least 3 weeks is key to eliminating fungus. Hope this helps!
