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!

A swish and swallow medication used to treat fungal infections taken PO ## I am not finding anything under this, are you sure you have the correct spelling? ## My doctor prescribed Mile's Solution for extreme canker sores (I had 14 after a surgery).

diphen lidocain

My Dr. prescribed Nystatin, Diphhen, Rulox, Lido for a sore throat that has lingered for three months. The directions are to swish and swallow 15mls every 8 hours. I get the numbness described in your thread, but only for about 10 minutes. It does not mention not eating before/after dosage, however, I have chronic constipation and wondered if it is from this compound? ## Hi Macrooster, Sorry to hear about your throat. How has it been feeling since the timing of your post? According to NIH.gov, constipation is indeed listed as a side effect of Diphen (Diphenhydramine). I didn't find this side effect listed under any of the other ingredients you mentioned, but hopefully this will help shed some light on what might've been causing your chronic constipation. Have you tried taking an...

Nystatin And Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream

Can this cream be used to treat plantars warts on the bottom of the foot? ## Hi Kim, Information on the packaging label indicates that Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream is indicated for the treatment of cutaneous candidiasis.

hydrocorti nystatin Q-dryl

My husband was prescribed this med after telling his oncologist that he felt like he had something in his throat that was making it hard to swallow. For the last 3 days now he has had constant hiccups. I mean constant(even while sleeping). He's about at the end of his rope. I suggested that he take a dose of the "magic mouthwash". The hiccups stopped for about 15 minutes and then came back. That 15 minutes has been his only relief for 3 days. He had chemo this week as well.

Can the oral (swish and spit ) nystatin be used on skin?

Could the oral liquid be used to treat yeast on the outer part of the labia? Monistat seems to be clearing the inside but the outside has yeast as well (from antibiotics for pneumonia) i have nystatin liquid left from a previous time i had oral thrush from an antibiotic. Was curious if it could be applied to that external area? ## Hello, Jm! How are you? No, you shouldn't use it like that, it may contain ingredients that are irritating to the labia and may create more problems.

Nystatin and temporary itching

I have been taking Oral Nystatin Tablets for a few weeks for high levels of Candida found in an Organization. Acids Test. I noticed that about an hour after taking the medicine I start itching everywhere for abut an hour, maybe less then I am fine. Is this a possible allergic reaction or could it be the "yeasties" in my body reacting to the medicine? Thanks for any perspective on the situation. ## Hello, Jana! How are you doing? Are you still experiencing the itching? It would be best to consult your doctor, that could be the sign of an allergic reaction and such a reaction may continue to get worse, with repeated exposure to the allergen.

do you insert Nystatin inside your vagina for inflamation?

I was prescribed Nystatin triamcinolone acetonide cream usp for inflamation of my cervix but I dont know if i am supposed to put the cream inside of my vagina? It says for external use only? ## Hi Jess, It may be a good idea to double check with your prescribing doctor first, but from my understanding - when a medication says "for external use only", I get the sense that they use that as a warning to not 'orally' ingest it. However, my personal opinion is that it should be ok to apply on the outer areas of the cervix and not directly inside, unless specifically instructed otherwise by your doctor. I think that would probably be the best way to play it safe until further notice if I were in such a position. Does anyone else have thoughts on this?
