Nystatin cream

Nystatin cream or Nystatin ointment is an antifungal (yeast) medication that is derived from Streptomyces Noursei.  Nystatin is used for fungus infection in the skin, esophagus, mouth and vagina that caused by candida albicans.

In healthy person, yeast and beneficial bacteria are living in balance in the digestive tract system, with an almost undetectable amount of yeast versus an overwhelm amount of beneficial bacteria.  When this balance changes, the beneficial bacterial level is low, yeast begins to spread.  An overgrowth of yeast caused variety of fungal diseases.
