Yes, I used it after two courses of nystatin didn't work. I consulted a lactation consultant and here's what she told me:
Use a q-tip to coat the inside of baby's mouth, the whole mouth, tongue, gums, everything.
Then either nurse right away or paint your nipples and surrounding area (anything that is in baby's mouth while nursing).
Use a fresh q-tip, don't dip the same one back in because it contaminates the GV.
Do this once a day for 7 days.
It is very, very messy, but it worked like a charm. It is very purple, very dark and baby will drool it everywhere, but it is worth it because it works. But make sure you are treating yourself as well. You can have it and have no symptoms, but keep passing it to baby.
