Who recommends the drug

Nystatin destroys the permeability of the cell walls of fungi. This leads to the elimination of the main components of the cell. The substance exhibits its activity towards yeast-like fungi such as Candida, including Candida albicans .

Common indications for the use of the drug is candidiasis (that is, thrush) of the mucous membranes (vagina, lower intestine, rectum, etc.), as it is sometimes used for fungal skin lesions.

special instructions

back side In the treatment of fungal disease of the vagina, it is recommended to apply the ointment along the perimeter of the genital organ. This will increase the therapeutic effect and avoid recurrence. At the same time, a sexual partner is required.

When menstruating, you should not abandon the procedure.

If, together with nystatin, apply clotrimazole, then the effectiveness of the latter is weakened.

How to apply the medicine correctly

The general recommendation is to apply a thin layer of ointment to the area affected by the fungus. This procedure is performed twice a day. The normative course duration is from 7 to 10 days. Extension is possible up to 4 weeks.

In case of stomatitis:

28897138 With this disease, Nystatin ointment is used only when the cause of the disease is the thrush of the oral cavity. The medicine stops the spread of fungi and releases the body from them in a short time.

The medicine is applied to a cotton or gauze swab, and then the damaged areas in the mouth are lubricated. Periodicity of treatment - in the morning and before bedtime. The therapeutic course is determined by individual features of the body and the degree of damage to the mucous membranes in the mouth.

For men:

Symptoms of thrush in men are manifested in the same way as in women. First, the external genital organs must be treated with household soap and warm water. Then wash your hands and apply a thin layer of ointment to the surface of the infected area. Repeat 2-3 times a day. Before each application it is advisable to visit the bathroom.

The course lasts from 10 to 12 days. This term refers to the acute form of the disease. For a chronic disease, the duration can be increased. In this case, the ointment is not enough. It is necessary to take the drug inside.

In the presence of diaper rash:

This phenomenon is typical not only for toddlers. In some adults, for example, immobile patients, it also appears. This problem is solved by Nystatin Ointment when applied three times a day to the problem area of ​​the skin. After two or three days, the patient's condition is clearly improving.


Ointment with nystatin always lies in our medicine cabinet. As soon as my immunity is weakened, thrush immediately appears. This ointment works well with it. Just need to keep in mind a slightly zhirnovatuyu texture composition. It is better to use a gasket. Ointment quickly softens and soothes mucous membranes. It is pleasant, that this preparation is always accessible and inexpensive. Raisa, 28 years old, Saransk

I prefer this ointment, since it has a calming effect on the mucous membranes (thanks not only to nystatin, but also to lanolin). The fact that it gets dirty is a small minus. But the results of exposure to mucous membranes and skin - a huge plus. The condition improves in just two days. But from experience I know that it is better to finish the course, as the doctor appoints. Евгения, 22 years old, Москва

My baby has problems on the skin due to diapers - rash, redness, as from a burn. Have tried different ointments and creams. I had to go to the doctor, who prescribed Nystatin ointment. It took a day for the inflammation to come down. Now I always have this facility at home. As soon as redness appears, I apply it once on the skin. It's enough to make it all go away. I strongly advise young mothers. Lidiya, 29 years old, Perm
