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

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

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

No: They are terrible actually. Nystatin is an antifungal medicine, but is not effective against ringworm.
