Im pregnant and have oral thrush. I have been prescribed nystatin but scared to take it as im within the first 13 weeks of pregnancy? What do i do?

CAN Triamcinolone or nyStatIn be Used for bed bugS bites?

Yes & no: Triamcinolone is a steroid cream that helps to reduce itching. So doc might prescribe that to deal w/bed bugs but it won't treat infection or bites.
