Nystatin Swish and Swallow

Nystatin is a prescription medication that comes in many different forms and is approved for treating various conditions. Specifically, it is used to treat infections caused by the Candida species of fungi. This type of fungus is a common cause of thrush, diaper rash, yeast infections, and many other infections.
 
"Nystatin swish and swallow" is a commonly used name for nystatin oral suspension. This product is often used for the treatment of oral thrush.
 
It is important to understand that this medication works directly in contact with the mouth. It does not work like most medications, through the bloodstream. Therefore, simply swallowing the dose (without swishing it or holding it in the mouth) will be ineffective.
