Nyastatin

Were you looking for information about Nystatin? Nyastatin is a common misspelling of nystatin.
Nystatin is an antifungal medication approved for treating various types of fungal infections, including diaper rash, yeast infections, and thrush. By binding to ergosterol (an important component of the fungal cell membrane), the drug changes the membrane to make it more "leaky" and to allow for the leakage of important cellular contents to occur.

There are many different nystatin products available, including vaginal tablets, oral tablets, oral suspension (liquid), creams, ointments, and powder.
