Can Nystatin cream help in reducing red inflamed irritation in the armpits?

Hi there, I have had a red, inflamed irritation in my armpit for a few weeks now (about 3.5) and I was wondering if Nystatin Cream might help until I see my doctor in a week... I did change deodorants, but at this point I have not used any for about a week now...

Hiii
Your red inflamed skin in the armpit can be due to
excessive perspiration and secondary fungal as well as bacterial infection
second reason It may be due to allergy to your deo spray.
As nystatin cream is antiseptic it won't work on it. my advice is to apply triple combination cream containing mild steroid and anti fungal and antiseptic .
thanx
if any more queries do ask.
