Dosage & duration:   Thin film of cream applied to area (dosage frequency: twice daily) for the period of 4 weeks
Other conditions:   None

Reported Results
Benefits:   Candida rashes did not disappear. I was doing an anti-candida diet at the same time. i.e cutting out sugars, refined carbs etc. and taking oregano oil, probiotics, pau d'arco tea, caprylic acid. Cream did not work any better than ti tree oil.
Side effects:   None.
Comments:   I have found other creams to be more effective. Most notably Clotrimazole and Hydrocortizone.


Nystatin review by care giver of 2 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   Moderate Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   yeast diaper rash
Dosage & duration:   pea sized (dosage frequency: with each diaper change) for the period of 3 days, 12 or more times
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   had to administer otc hydrocortisone due to medication induced eczema
Reported Results
Benefits:   Daily application, cured the fungal infection despite side effects. Over the counter use of lotrimin AG did no work, and prescription alternaitve medication using miconizole nitrate (same as in monistay) cost upwards of $200 / tube, as my insurance did not cover much of it.
Side effects:   caused localized eczema that had to be treated with hydrocortisone cream, which is risky as that can cause damage to the skin under the diaper area.
Comments:   had to apply with each diaper change, along with a otc diaper cream or applied with aquaphor, and twice a day had to add the otc hydrocortisone cream.
