In brief: Both will work
Most topicals, whether cream or spray, will work if used as directed.
Generic is fine. The key is to use regularly to get the best results.

I believe cream are better than spray because of direct contact to the skin.
I think the most effective over the counter cream is lamisil (terbinafine). There are also many prescription meds if this does not work.
