I had a huge ulcer form on my tougue due to a previous SURGERY that required intubation and the tube broke a tooth causing my tongue to rub the tooth causing the ulcer.. my ENT prescribed Nystatin plus an oral suspension steroid both instructed I swish AM and PM. Within a week the ulcer had shrunk and was byopsied for Cancer which was negative. Great Dr. And great drug. No side effects.

Horrible GI Problems
This is much harder on my GI system than Diflucan. I was told it I had to switch because Diflucan can impact the liver but given the chance, I would take the possible liver damage over the constant pain of Nystatin. Horrible.

During a 14 day antibiotic prescription, I experienced a rash under my breasts. Nystatin cleared up the rash in 2 days!! It was such a relief! I have a refill on hand to deal with the summer heat and any future breakouts.
