In brief: Maybe

The most expensive medicine is the one that doesn't work; so if amlactin (which is Lactic Acid lotion) works for you, it's worth the price.
That said, there are other Lactic Acid lotions on the market which may be cheaper in your area. Also, shop around; prices can vary a lot from pharmacy to pharmacy.
