Question regarding possible side effects from use of Jublia

Since I have been applying Jublia, I have suffered nausea, abdominal pain, and pain in my chest and back. I have been checked by my doctor and have no other medical problems. Would like to know if anyone else has similar more serious side effects such as nausea and abdominal pain, etc ## Hello, Cera! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you've experiencing. While there is no way to say how any given medication will affect any certain person that tries it, those symptoms are not among its typical side effects, as reported by the FDA. Since it's applied topically, it's usual side effects are related to that and include ingrown toenail, application site pain and irritation, stinging and redness. Has anyone else experienced symptoms such as this, while using it? ## Can ...

Jublia Worked for Me After Fingernail Excised Due to Fungus

Wanted to let you know that Jublia worked. I used a dab of vinegar first, and then put the Jublia on my fingernail. It was amazing for me. I had the fungus for over 3 years. Everyone, even my dermatologist, told me it probably wouldn't work. I used it for the 48 weeks religiously every night. I'm still using it to make sure the nail is healed. I only used one bottle. Just 'wetted' the nail each night. ## I am very glad that it worked for you, that's amazing. I have a friend who has tried everything, for many years, with no luck. Each time something new becomes available, her doctor prescribes it for her, but so far, she's only wasted her money and time. I've also read some complaints online about people running out too fast, it's been said that the bottle...

Can Gelmicin be used for ringworm and if so is it effective? ## Hello, Robert! How are you?

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?
