Mycolog-II (Nystatin / Triamcinolone Acetonide Topical) - Summary



Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP

MYCOLOG-II Cream (Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream) for dermatologic use contains the antifungal agent nystatin and the synthetic corticosteroid triamcinolone acetonide. Nystatin is a polyene antimycotic obtained from Streptomyces noursei. It is a yellow to light tan powder with a cereal-like odor, very slightly soluble in water, and slightly to sparingly soluble in alcohol.

MYCOLOG-II (Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream) is indicated for the treatment of cutaneous candidiasis; it has been demonstrated that the nystatin-steroid combination provides greater benefit than the nystatin component alone during the first few days of treatment.
