The drug is applied to a cotton or gauze swab, and then lubricate the damaged area in the mouth. The frequency of treatment - in the morning and before bedtime. The treatment course is determined by the individual characteristics of the body and the degree of damage to the mucous membranes in the mouth.

Ointment with nystatin always lies in our first aid kit. As soon as my immune system is weakened, thrush appears immediately. This ointment copes well with it. Only we must bear in mind the slightly fatty texture of the composition. It is better to use a gasket. The ointment quickly softens and soothes the mucous membranes. Like that this drug is always available and inexpensive. Raisa, 28 years old, Saransk

I prefer this ointment, as it has a sedative effect on the mucous membranes (thanks not only to nystatin, but also to lanolin). The fact that she gets dirty is a small minus. But according to the results of exposure to mucous membranes and skin - a huge plus. The condition improves literally in two days. But I know from experience that it is better to complete the course, as prescribed by the doctor. Evgenia, 22 years old, Moscow

My baby has skin problems due to diapers - a rash, redness, like a burn. Tried various ointments and creams. I had to go to the doctor who prescribed nystatin ointment. Enough days to get rid of the inflammation. Now this means I always have at home. As soon as the redness appears, apply it once to the skin. This is enough to make it all go away. I strongly advise young mothers. Lydia, 29 years old, Perm
