No: No it is not usual to use two medications for the same diagnosis. Start with one and continue using it for the length of time labelled on the directions. Usually some change in how you use the medication, like amount, frequency or length of use causes it to be non effective. Some rashes need stronger prescripiton meds , certain illnesses can cause fungal infections. Example diabetes. Check up?
