Nystatin ointment for insect bites

Can nystatin ointment be used on insect bites such as ant or mosquito bites to help the itching relief??? ## Hello, Kay Kay! How are you? No, this is an antifungal medication, so it won't do anything to help with such issues. It would be best to use something specifically made to treat those irritations. Nystatin only treats fungal conditions, such as yeast infections. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you, I was about to do this till I saw your post. Very useful thanks ## If you get the insect bite infected by scratching it nystatin should be ok to use then ## Can I put benedryl cream on my 7 month old for mosquito bites? It says under 2 ask a Dr, so does the children's Tylenol nowadays. ## Well, it works great on spider bites!

Fluconazole/staph infections

I am currently using fluconazole while a orthopedic (hip) spacer is in my leg following a severe infection that formed in my prostetic hip.Due to my inability to walk(toe touch only),I have gained weight ,but have also developed two staph infections in my foot and theigh,,,,,is this normal? ## I wouldn't say any type of infection is normal, since they have the potential to be dangerous. As to the Fluconazole, it is an antifungal medication, so whether or not it will help depends on the specific type of infection you have. When treating staph, it is usually used in combination with other medications. Ref: Medline Plus Fluconazole The FDA warns that Fluconazole may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications?

Can't find it anywhere. ## I have been looking for this product for at least 15 years. The last time I purchased this product, about 5 tubes, was at a Walmart Store 15 years ago.

Don't squeeze the bottle

It didn't take long to realize that squeezing the bottle would drain it all too quickly. Much better to simply hold it upside down for a few seconds while the brush acts as a wick, then, once wet, drag it across the affected nails, ensuring you can feel wetness. In other words, forget about administering a certain number of drops. Just do what you need to do to keep that brush wet. I'm fortunate that, under Medicare and Tricare-for-Life, three bottles cost me only $16 when ordered from Express Scripts. ## I'm two-thirds of the way into this regimen and visible fungus has been reduced by at least 90%. ## I have just completed the full treatment of three 90-day periods of Jublia application to my two affected toenails, and am happy to report that about halfway through the thir...

canex cream

Can a man use canex crean on his private part when he have some balls their? ## Hello, Don! How are you? I can't find anything that specifically lists what the ingredient is in Canex, there are various things claiming what it is, but nothing verified. However, it is listed as being an antifungal agent that can be used to treat yeast infections and other fungal skin infections, which means that it can be used by men or women, it is not gender specific. However, it will only treat fungal infections, according to the information I found, so you should see your doctor for a proper diagnosis, before using it. If your problem is caused by something else, such as a virus or bacterial infection, then this cream isn't going to help. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Hi I woul...

gelmicin cream for eczema

I just got a tube of Gelmincin. My grandson had a severe case of eczema, red itchy on back of leg arms and back ...just want to know if anyone had used it for their eczema and get some feedback on the usage. ## Hello, Faith13! How are you and your grandson? I'd suggest not using it on him, without doctor's approval. Using the wrong thing may actually make it worse. Gelmicin contains a topical steroid, an antibiotic and antifungal medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin irritation, redness, dryness and itching. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for your reply. We are currently using Aquaphor and Tropical oil Fluocinolone Acetonide prescribed by his dermatologist but we haven't seen a change. Still breaking out, very irr...
