They are terrible actually. Nystatin is an antifungal medicine, but is not effective against ringworm. Triamcinolone is a topical steroid that will help you with your itch, but often makes it easier for the fungus to grow and often allows it to spread more deeply into the skin.

Is it possible for you to use nystatin and triamcinolone acetonide on razor bumps?

No not a good idea

Nystatin
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 Cream and if there is infection you may need topical antibiotics with/without systemic/oral antibiotics

Is Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide safe to use in my face for seb dermatitis? It's 1% strength.

No (very short!)

Nystatin
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.

Is it possible to treat Tinea Versicolor with Nystatin Triamcinolone Acetonide cream?

NOT GOOD IDEA

Tinea
Tinea versicolor needs to be treated with more effective Antifungal lotion by local application and rarely combining with oral antifungal agents we can use 2.5% selineum sulphide,ketoconazole ointment or shampoo or clotrimazole etc.Nystatin with triamcinolone is not the best treatment for this condition Sometimes you have to also use oral therapy in resistant cases
