Nystaform (nystatin, chlorhexidine) is a cream used to treat topical fungal infections.

This medication contains two active ingredients:

  • Nystatin is an antifungal medication that destroys fungal cells.
  • Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic that destroys bacteria and fungi.

Together nystatin and chlorhexidine destroy the microbes causing the infection and protect it from further contamination. Nystatin is effective against Candida species---including the notorious C. albicans---and Trichophyton species. Chlorhexidine is effective against a wide range of microorganisms.

Note that while chlorhexidine is widely available over-the-counter and often applied to mucous membranes and open wounds, nystatin should not be. Nystaform cream should be used only on intact skin and not ingested or applied to open wounds or mucous membranes where it will be more readily absorbed into the bloodstream.

A Simple & Effective Solution

Fungal infections are very common, and the bulk of them are the result of Candida or Trichophyton species overgrowth. Many types of fungus occur naturally on the skin and in the body, and are often beneficial in reasonable numbers. Problems arise when those numbers become imbalanced and produce an infection, such as:

  • Oral thrush
  • Toenail or fingernail fungus
  • Intertriginous (skin fold) infections
  • Skin infections like jock itch or athlete's foot
  • Nappy rash
  • Vaginal yeast infections
  • Penile yeast infections
  • Various skin rashes and boils
  • Various intestinal infections

Fungal infections often start out as little more than a mild annoyance but can quickly become disruptive, causing pain, itching, unsightly rashes, skin discoloration, and often produce an unpleasant odor. Left untreated fungal infections can cause permanent damage and, if the infection becomes systemic, can even be fatal, though this is unlikely unless there is significant immune system impairment.

Nystaform is designed to eradicate topical infections; both its ingredients attack fungal cells and chlorhexidine further protects the skin from opportunistic bacteria that might take advantage of skin weakened by the fungal infection. Because Nystaform is oriented toward fungal infections, it is unlikely to have significant effect on infections that are primarily bacterial in nature.

The cream should be applied directly to the infected area two or three times per day. Some people notice improvements within days of starting treatment, but it may take a couple of weeks for significant improvement to be noticed. Treatment should continue for one week after all signs of infection have disappeared. If there are no noticeable improvements after two weeks of treatment or if the condition worsens during treatment, alternative treatments should be considered.

Nystaform is also available in Nystaform HC, a similar product which also contains hydrocortisone to soothe inflammation, itchiness and other symptoms associated with infection.

Precautions Before Use

The majority of people experience no side effects from Nystaform if used as directed. A small percentage of patients have an allergic reaction to the medication or its inactive ingredients; burning, itching, and redness at the application site are symptoms of this. Mild stinging when the cream is applied is not cause for concern.

Nystaform should be applied to clean, dry skin and not be covered with tight clothing or wound dressings. Wait at least 30 minutes after applying Nystaform before using other topical products, such as moisturizers, on the application site.

Nystaform should not be used long-term; one or two weeks should be sufficient to clear up most fungal infections. A doctor should be consulted if there are no significant improvements by this time; it's possible the infection is not fungal or there are some other complications preventing healing.

It is unlikely that Nystaform will cause harm to unborn or nursing babies if used while pregnant or breastfeeding. Caution should be used to avoid getting the cream on the breast where a nursing infant might ingest it.
