Nystantin

Were you looking for information about Nystatin? Nystantin is a common misspelling of nystatin.
Nystatin is a prescription antifungal drug approved for the treatment of yeast diaper rash, thrush, and various other fungal infections. By binding to an important component of the fungal cell membrane (called ergosterol), the medication changes the cell membrane, making it more "leaky" and allowing for the leakage of important cellular contents to occur.

The directions for using nystatin will vary, depending on the specific product (the medicine comes in the form of tablets, liquid, cream, ointment, and powder).
