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

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.

dark pink liquid that you swish in your mouth and swallow ## Prescribed while undergoing chemotherapy ## Still do not know what Rothwells Solution is for.
