Hello, Jane! How are you?

No, Nystatin is an antifungal ointment, while Bactroban is an antibiotic ointment, they treat different things and neither should be used, without your doctor's approval.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, irritation, dryness and rash.

What has caused the sores? Have you had them checked out by your doctor?
