does "nyastin and triamcinolone acetonide cream" help yeast infection?

Yeast infection: Nystatin treats the yeast infection, triamcinolone treats inflammation. We often use them together when we are not sure what the cause of the infection is.

Yes : Nystatin controls the infection and the steroid cream will help with inflammation.

Avoid prolonged use: You can use Nystatin every day------miconazole or ketoconazole or Clotrimazole may be better. But avoid prolonged use of triamcinolone in genital area as it will cause atrophy (severe thinning) of skin with striae (ugly purple streaks). If you have persistent symptoms see your dr.
