Oral nystatin has a sucrose ingredient in it, yeast feeds off of sugar so how is a person supposed to get rid of oral thrush?

In brief: Don't worry,it works

The anti fungal properties of Nystatin more than offset any yeast benefit that may arise from the solution.
It's really minimal. good luck.

In brief: Nystatin works

by disrupting the cell wall of the yeast.
The yeast cannot survive without a wall. The sucrose in the preparation should have no impact on the medication efficacy.
