Nystaten

Were you looking for information about Nystatin? Nystaten is a common misspelling of nystatin.
Nystatin is a prescription drug licensed to treat fungal infections such as thrush and yeast diaper rash. It comes in many forms, including some that are taken by mouth and some that are applied to the skin.

The antifungal medication is not significantly absorbed into the bloodstream, which means that it is not good for fungal infections other than those on the surface of the body (which can be treated with ointments, creams, or powders) or those of the digestive tract (which can be treated with oral forms of the medicine).
