Hi,

Polygynax contains nystatin, neomycin and polymyxin B. Nystatin is an anti-fungal drug which acts against the fungal infection. It should be used only as topical agent. It is not advisable for blood infections. It does not cause any significant side effect in the unborn babies.

Neomycin is an antibacterial medicine used to treat bacterial infections particularly gram negative type of bacteria. It should not be used in pregnancy, since it can cause damage to the developing fetus. Polymyxin B is an antibiotic medicine used to treat bacterial infections such as E. coli, etc. This drug also has some harmful effect towards unborn babies. It should not be taken orally. Discuss with your Gynecologist about the complications on oral and topical treatment.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Pradeepraj, General & Family Physician
