Nystop (nystatin) Topical Powder is used to treat skin infections caused by yeast. It is an antifungal antibiotic. This medication is available in generic form. Common side effects include skin irritation or redness.

Tell your doctor all prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements you use. Nystop should be used only if prescribed during pregnancy.
