How to Use nystatin-triamcinolone

Topical cream

This medicine is for external use only. Do not take by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Wash your hands before and after use. If treating hand or nail infections, wash hands before use only. Apply a thin layer of this medicine to the affected area and rub in gently. Do not use on healthy skin or over large areas of skin. Do not get this medicine in your eyes. If you do, rinse out with plenty of cool tap water. When applying to the groin area, apply a limited amount and do not use for longer than 2 weeks unless directed to by your doctor or health care professional. Do not cover or wrap the treated area with an airtight bandage (such as a plastic bandage). Use the full course of treatment prescribed, even if you think the infection is getting better. Use at regular intervals. Do not use your medicine more often than directed. Do not use this medicine for any condition other than the one for which it was prescribed.

Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. While this drug may be prescribed for selected conditions, precautions do apply. Children being treated in the diaper area should not wear tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants.

Elderly patients are more likely to have damaged skin through aging, and this may increase side effects. This medicine should only be used for brief periods and infrequently in older patients.

What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, use only that dose. Do not use double or extra doses.

Tell your doctor or health care professional if your symptoms do not start to get better within 1 week when treating the groin area or within 2 weeks when treating the feet. .

Tell your doctor or health care professional if you develop sores or blisters that do not heal properly. If your skin infection returns after stopping this medicine, contact your doctor or health care professional.
