Treating fungal infection in armpit with ketoconazole. Can antiperspirant be worn with the cream, which should be put on first?

In brief: Good question

I would suggest applying the antiperspirant first, wait about 15-20 minutes and then apply the ketoconazole sparingly.
On the other hand you might, if you do not perspire a lot hold off on the antiperspirant for a week and just apply the ketoconazole daily for a week.
