As an antifungal medication, Nystatin Oral Suspension is specifically designed to combat fungal infections within the mouth. Unlike systemic antifungal drugs, Nystatin is not absorbed into the bloodstream, making it ideal for directly targeting the local infection site. By suppressing the growth and spread of Candida yeast, this medication offers relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of thrush, such as soreness, redness, and difficulty swallowing.

Description

Nystatin Oral Suspension is a cornerstone in treating oral candidiasis, more commonly known as thrush. Thrush is a fungal infection in the mouth caused by an overgrowth of a yeast called Candida. Nystatin works by binding to sterols in the fungal cell membrane, altering the membrane’s permeability, and causing essential constituents of the cell to leak out, effectively killing the fungus.
