Reviews for Nystatin topical

“Glad I found these comments! I thought I was a freak. This is my second go-around with NYSTATIN cream USP and the Powder. I took a second dose of Fluconazole (tablet) per doctor's advice and she told me to continue use of the cream and powder (Nyamyc) even though I told her the cream seemed to make me itch and 'prickle' even more and contributed to the uncomfortable 'moisture'. I found the powder to calm the itch down enough to sleep at night and to keep the areas DRY. My yeast infection is in the creases of my groin, and ON my vulva. A few random 'bumps' - 2 types - come and go and the whole 'area' just feels irritated. I can't wear panties - they only aggravate the issue - I'm in nightgowns and muu muus! :( Will it ever go away?!”

“This nystatin is the worst medicine ever for a vag yeast infection. If you are prescribed this please ask for something different. My yeast infection is gone but this cream burns like fire. How long is it supposed to keep burning ?”

“Turns out im in that small percentage of people that is allergic to nystatin. I would reccomend applying to a small part of your skin first to see if you are allergic! I never ever want to go through that amount of pain again!”

“It does it’s job the only problem is that it causes your skin to itch which is very irritating to my skin. It didn’t really itch with the yeast infection and now it’s itchy all the time whenever I use this cream”

Nystatin Powder Absolutely Effective ! February 4, 2012

“Instant Relief ! I am on antibiotics and nothing worked to stop the relentless itching except Nystatin Powder! I have never had any yeast infection that has been so stubborn. Soon as I applied this powder voila it stopped the itching in it's tracts! I haven't been able to stop this UTI's repeated return! I live in a 3 family and the pet upstairs and ours also came down with UTI's ! I am suspicious of the water it's from a res. We had run out of spring water and drank it. Also drinking mega spring water and cranberry compounds.”

Nystop (nystatin): “Initially stopped the itching, burning, but 3 days later the itching and burning is back just as severely as before. This is being used in conjunction with Fluconazole Tablet 150mg.”

“Nystatin was prescribed for my 4 yr old, it seemed to give her immediate relief. However wasn't as effective when prescribed to me. Maybe not strong enough for adults.”
