Nystatin and Triamcinolone Ointment Not sure about the triamcinolone stuff, but the Nystatin can come in different forms. I have used both the liquid which was for my daughte…rs thrush when she was an infant and the ointment which is for yeast infection which I used for my other daughters diaper rash. I don't think these products are just for little ones exclusively. Additional Info: This is an anti-fungal and steriod ointment. My ENT doctor prescribed this cream (Nystatin & Triamcinolone Acetonide cream) for my ear aches. I would get VERY painful ear aches, with swelling and tenderness accompanying the pain. Along with the pain was also some discharge of fluid sometimes. I would get these earaches quite alot, sometimes 4 times a year or more. I was not a swimmer, I was never submerged underwater, so I do not know what caused these ear problems. But my ENT doctor gave me this cream, told me to put it on a Q-tip and gently and carefully put it into my ear canal, and it worked great. It cleared up my earache quickly--no more pain, swelling, or tenderness. After the ear cleared up, the ENT doc told me to do a daily routine of alcohol + white vinegar mixture in both my ears daily. He recommended a mixture ratio of isopropyl alcohol to white vinegar of about 50:1 (the doc told me to use the 91% iso. alcohol, but I am sure you can use the lower percentages too). So in a small bottle (I use a ten ounce bottle) I just put a few drops of white vinegar (no more than a capful) and mix it with the alcohol, shake it up, and you have your solution to use daily to maintain a clean healthy ear canal. Please check with your own doctor before you use this type of solution on your own. I have also found out that this Nystatin ointment is used for yeast infections and to treat for Cutaneous candidiasis. This was from drugs.com, here is the link: http://www.drugs.com/ppa/nystatin-triamcinolone-acetonide.HTML The combination of Nystatin plus the Triamcinolone seems to work better together than Nystatin alone, especially for dermatological treatments. Interesting note: according to the above link, the Nystatin ointment is not recommeded for otic (ear) use. I guess my doctor (he is an Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist) knows more than the people at drugs.com. However, I would not recommend that anybody use this stuff in their ear unless they go to their own ENT doctor to find out what the ENT specialist says.
Although the question is not clear, I suspect the question is about these medications used for yeast infections, including thrush, that are a result of having lupus and taking… immunosuppressive medications. Immunosuppressive medications make lupus patients more prone to infections of all kinds. If nystatin coes not resolve the thrush ask for oral diflucan.
Nystatin is not in the steroid class. It's an antifungal. The active ingredient in Triamcinolone is a synthetic steroid, in the corticosteroid family. Here's a link to the …chemical formula, indications, application practice, and more for Triamcinolone on drugs.com:
Nystatin is an antifungal and triamcinolone is a steroid. Nystatin would treat the fungal infection while the triamcinolone would help reduce inflammation (swelling, redness, …itching).

That depends on the cause. If you're not getting relief after 10 days, or if it's getting worse, contact the prescribing health care provider.
nystatin does not contain a steriod.
I have used it myself for psoriasis on my hands....and over all the years and different creams & ointments...that is the only thing that will clear it up 100% (untill another …breakout that is) I had originally had it for something else and noticed that my hands were really clearing up!!
Reccently I used just plain nystatin on my hemorrhoids out of pure desperation for pain, itch relief (it was prescribed for yeast infection on my skin). It worked instantly. … I could have cried because I felt so much better in 5 seconds.
