How many times are you applying Nystatin?
I have not seen him as I live 270 miles away. They always ask me these questuion due toe being an RN for 50 years
Nystatin can take some time to have full effect.
It can take a week too.
Acetaminophen can be given.
This can be helpful in relieving the pain & irritation.
The dose would be 5-7 mg/ lb per dose.

Please tell them to apply it to all the affected areas carefully.
I hope he will improve soon.
