Does mycolog II cream cure a yeast infection or is it just used for temporary relief? And if so how long will it take to cure a yeast infection?
Yeast "infection": Technically, vaginal yeast "infection" is an overgrowth problem because the natural balance between lactobacilli & yeast has been upset; common causes are antibiotics (kill the lactobacilli), diabetes (more food for the yeast), frequent douching, etc. Mycolog helps decrease the amount of yeast to restore the balance. Many variables determine how long to restore this balance/"cure the infection". ...Read more
Yeast infections: Mycolog ii is an anti-fungal and is used for yeast infections. If your treatment fails to relieve your symptoms, you may have BV (bacterial vaginosis) which is usually treated with Flagyl pills/gel or Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) cream. See your doc if your symptoms persist for an exam and testing. ...Read more
Can I use nystatin and triamcinolone acetonide cream to treat a rash caused by allergy to roaches?
Depends: Nystatin is used to treat fungal infections. Triamcinolone is topical steroid, which is used to treat eczema or allergic contact dermatitis type reactions. I f the rash is being caused by an allergic reaction, using the triamcinolone cream twice daily on the affected area will help. However, roaches traditionally causes nasal allergy symptoms or worsening of asthma and rarely contact reactions. ...Read more

Safe but...: The concept of safety is relative. Mycolog cream will not affect the intercourse, but will most likely not make it pleasant for both you and your partner. Traces of cream will get on his penis and in case of oral sex in his mouth or in your mouth if his penis is smeared with it. I just don't think it's going to be an experience you will look forward to in the future. ...Read more
Discontinued in US: I'm surprised you can even get this nowadays. It is a topical anti fungal (nystatin) but is also has a corticosteroid cream (triamcinolone) that is an effective anti-inflammatory med. It's usually used for fungal skin infections (tinea corpus) with secondary inflammation. You can't or shouldn't use it vaginally. If used in skin areas, call your doc if there's no improvement in 3-4 days. Take care. ...Read more

How long (number of days) should I continue treatment with nystatin and triamcinolone cream for a minor yeast infection?
Is nystatin and triamcinolone acetonide safe to use in my face for seb dermatitis? It's 1% strength.
No (very short!): The concentration of triamcinolone (tac) is too high. For the face, concentrations should be 0.025 or less of tac. Problems that occur if you use this high concentration is thinning of the skin and steroid acne. Usually no higher that 2.5% (hc)hydrocortisone (or equivalent) is recommended on the face. The otc hc cream is actually only 0.1%. You will need to see your doc for a prescription. ...Read more

Poison Control: In all likelihood, there will be no effects in your little one besides possible stomach upset. However, you should give Poison Control (800-222-1222) a call, and they will guide you through all the necessary steps; they are best equipped with all of the up-to-date information and will provide you with the support and reassurance you need! ...Read more

No not a good idea: It is not a good idea to use nystatin/triamcinolone cream for razor bumps. Razor bumps need to be prevented by waxing, laser treatments, and if not infected you can use retin a (tretinoin) cream and if there is infection you may need topical antibiotics with/without systemic/oral antibiotics. ...Read more
Administration: Please ask the administrators how this can be arranged. ...Read more

Yes: Not all of the food allergies are created equal. Food allergies like dairy, egg, wheat tend to be outgrown. Tree nut and peanut are less likely (although recent studies suggest that 20-30% outgrow the peanut allergy). Environmental allergies tend to "grow on you" with time. Note: the allergy test may remain positive despite the child having outgrown the allergy. Consult with an allergist. ...Read more
It depends: It really depends on the age of the child, and whether you're talking about food or environmental allergies. I generally will skin test children over age 2 for environmental allergies, while many younger kids need food testing. In terms of frequency, children with environmental allergies may benefit from repeat testing after 2 years, as their allergies can change as they get older. ...Read more
Sometimes: But not all the time. Nasal allergies are not a frequent cause of a really bad persistent cough. In a child with allergies and a really bad cough (assuming no fever) I would be concerned about a reactive airway/asthma type condition. If the child also had eczema I would be even more concerned. ...Read more
Breastfeed!: Breastfeeding is shown to be protective for children with a strong family history of allergies. If unable to breast feed, try a hypoallergenic formula such as "nutramigen" or "alimentum". Try to avoid introducing baby foods until 4-6 months of age; once you do, introduce them slowly. Interestingly, exposure to dogs & cats appears to reduce the risk of becoming allergic to those household pets! ...Read more
Nasal, eye, skin: Children will exhibit sneezing, itchy nose/eye, stuffy nose or cough with close exposures with pets. If licked by a cat or dog and allergy is present, a rash could develop at that site. The allergies could manifest as asthma with cough, wheezing or difficulty breathing. Typically a pattern will be seen, but if it is an indoor pet, the symptoms may be continuous. ...Read more
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
