In brief: 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.

In brief: Yes

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

We often use them together when we are not sure what the cause of the infection is.
