Is triamcinolone an antifungal?

Nystatin and triamcinolone combination contains an antifungal and a corticosteroid (cortisone-like medicine). Antifungals are used to treat infections caused by a fungus. They work by killing the fungus or preventing its growth. This medicine will not work for other kinds of infections.

Also, can triamcinolone acetonide be used for fungus?

Triamcinolone is a steroid. It reduces the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling. The combination of nystatin and triamcinolone topical (for the skin) is used to treat skin infections caused by fungus or yeast.
