Reviews for Nystatin / triamcinolone topical
"Suffer from recurrent yeast infections if I consume too much alcohol. Put this topically in my pubic area and it burns like the fires of heck for at least 5 minutes, then disappears. Not sure if the itching has stopped because the drug is working or because my vagina fell off."
"I was perscribed this cream when I was suffering with severe vaginal irritation. (Swelling, burning, itching, pain, and redness.) for months I suffered, convinced it was something awful. I got cleared for all possible outcomes, when my Dr told me it was a yeast infection. But one that had only lived on the surface of my skin! So she prescribed me this cream and I used it 2x daily, for about 8 days. It worked GREAT! So thankful to have her as my obgyn! Ladies, stop suffering with vaginal pain and get to the bottom of the cause !"
"I was prescribed this cream for symptoms of a yeast infection, however I suffer from time to time in the summer from eczema on my neck and decided to use it to stop the itching. Just a small amount applied and it changed within a week. The itching and irritation stopped immediately, but my skin was back to its normal color in 5 days (darkened from the eczema) I LOVE THIS CREAM!!"
"I needed to find something that would relieve the 4 red, itchy spots under my arms that looked like ringworm. I remembered that I had this medicine. I tried it and it WORKED. I have been using it for about 3 days (note seeing a big change in redness and itching within the first day). Will continue to use it."
"I had a abscess on my upper thigh so the docs gave me bactrim to take. Took 4 pills and had a really bad reaction to it. But the reaction was swollen vagina, itchy, sore and lesions from how swollen it got. Went to see a different doc because it was the weekend and they thought I had the herpes. Well I know my body and what herpes look like. They did the test. No herpes. So I go back to the same doc that gave me the bactrim and she said it was allergic reaction to it. Anyways its a severe yeast infection from the bactrim. They gave me to pills for yeast and the miracle cream. I have been taking it for two days now and feel/ see a big difference. Will never take bactrim and thank god for this miracle cream. FYI bactrim is banned in uk."
"After trying other medicines at a great deal of expense, I convinced my Dr. to prescribe this medicine as I used it years ago and it worked great, I was in dire straits for 2 months before finally being able to use it, it immediately started to work on my skin. It's a blessing."
"This has been a life saver! Suffered for months with what I believed was a yeast infection--discharge, itchiness, redness and swelling. Tried all OTC meds Monistat 7,3,1 and while it would relieve it it always returned. Finally gave up and got in with my doctor who prescribed this, and I felt the effects immediately! Only two full days in and I have noticed that the redness and swelling is down as well as the itchiness."
Mycolog II (nystatin / triamcinolone) "My orthodontist prescribed this to me because of cracks in the corners of my mouth that developed while having braces. It’s a miracle cream. I dab a bit on the cracks before bed then it’s practically all gone in the morning. I use it one more night and I’m good to go. That was almost 40 yrs ago. Unfortunately the fungus still comes back a few times a year."
"I do not recommend this cream. I am very prone to cutaneous yeast because of pre-diabetes. My gyn gave me an Rx for this cream due to an infection under my breasts. I thoroughly washed and dried the area daily, applying the cream and then bandaged it with sterile gauze. It seemed to work, but it took forever and the cream seemed to cause the yeast to spread (moisture is a breeding ground for yeast). I recently came down with another infection in a different area and tried to use the cream and it made it WAY worse - it caused burning and itching. The ARNP I saw gave me an Rx for nystatin powder and oral methylprednisolone due to inflammation. It worked much better than the cream!"
"For me, the less medication I take, the better. But after a persistent ugly case of painful chapped lips for 4 straight weeks that would not let up, three light applications of triamcinolone made it disappear. I respect this medicine."
Mycolog II (nystatin / triamcinolone) "I have used this medicine in cream form and have excellent results."
Mycolog II (nystatin / triamcinolone) "I am a Nurse Practitioner. I prescribe this all the time for chronic cracking in the corners of the lips. Works great!!"
"Combined with cellulitis and conjunctivitis (for which I received specific medicines), I was prescribed this cream for my skin (fungal infection behind ears) and almost instantly felt an improvement."
"Helped with itching caused by wheat allergy dermatitis herpetiformis Recommended by a dermatologist Use two or three time a day for relief from itching."
