Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP
Nystatin Cream (Brand Name: Mycostatin) topical (for the skin) is used to treat skin infections caused by yeast. It is an antifungal medication. This medication is available in generic form. Common side effects include skin irritation or redness.
Nystatin preparations should be applied liberally to affected areas twice a day or as indicated until healing is complete. Nystatin cream is usually preferred to nystatin ointment in candidiasis involving areas of the skin that may come in contact with other areas of the skin; very moist lesions are best treated with Nystatin topical powder. It is not likely that other drugs you take orally or inject will have an effect on topically applied Nystatin Cream. But many drugs can interact with each other. Tell your doctor all prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements you use. Nystatin-Cream should be used only if prescribed during pregnancy. It is not known whether this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
