Hi Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% is a prescription topical steroid and can be used for the treatment of poison ivy. However, you should take it under medical supervision. The other treatments include non-steroidal topical medications, calamine lotion, oral antihistamines (Benadryl), and/or oral steroids (prednisone) or a steroid shot. Hope it helps.
It's very much like having poison ivy - it really drives me crazy. The Ribavirin causes fatigue but once I have a nap I feel pretty good. Are there other things that might help with the rash?
Hi, Triamcinolone acetonide cream is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Triamcinolone Acetonide(CORTICOSTEROIDS)is used to treat swelling, inflammation, and itching of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rashes, insect bites, poison ivy, allergies and other irritations. Corticosteroids for the skin are available in different strengths and forms (e.g., creams, ointments, lotions and gels).
i have moluscum contagiosum and i use cortizone cream to reduce the itch and he can use the calamine lotion you would put on poison ivy can stop the itch too.. i have also been using this cream called triamcinolone acetonide ointment USP 0.1% im not sure if its actually working to get rid of it but ive noticed its slowing going away and i dont itch. you can also get cream called aldara.. its used for genetal warts but it does stop the itch.
i was told by our medic that it was heat rash and he gave me some triamcinolone acetonide cream. I used the cream for a couple days and noticed that the rash started to heal. about a week later when i returned home from training the rash returned. now the cream seems to have no effect and it is getting worse by the day. there are no pustules or ingrown hairs, just red itchy bumps that wont go away. poison ivy and sumack have already been ruled out.
Hello, Poison ivy is a form of contact dermatitis caused by exposure to the poison ivy plant. It is less likely for poison ivy contact dermatitis to persist for long and cause triggering of eczema. The greatest risk of long-term damage comes from the resulting blistering in which the blisters may scar if broken, and these potentially-open blisters leave open the possibility of secondary infections.
After about a week of Cortaid, the rash subsided but returned after 3 days and again ran up his arm. It was itchy and looked like poison ivy. By week 5 he had spots of the rash on his neck, chin and face. His pediatrician put him on a 5 day dose of prednisone and hydrocortisone valerate 0.2%. During the next week he was removed from the sleeve and splint and began physical therapy.
The doctor gave me a shot, like the ones given for severe poison ivy. It didn't help. I called again about another week later and the doctor prescribed premyth-----something, I don't remember the spelling but it is the cream used to treat scabies, although they didn't think I had scabies. It didn't work. Now the rash has gone away on my left shin but left a nasty looking purplish blotch but no itching there, however it is now on my neck, chest, back stomach and under my breasts.
I LIVE IN KONA, HAWAII AND GET MANGO RASH EVEN THOUGH I STAY AWAY FROM THEM. I USED TO GET THE RASH ON MY BODY-BEHIND MY KNEES, EARS AND INSIDE MY ELBOWS & JUST ALL OVER. I HAVE BEEN TREATED SEVERAL TIMES WITH THE CORTISONE SHOT AND STEROIDS. tHE LAST TWO REACTIONS I HAD CONSIST OF SWOLLEN, ITCHY LIPS THAT PROGRESS INTO WEEPY BLISTERS AND INTENSE BURNING. THREE DAYS AGO I GOT IT AGAIN AND WENT STRAIGHT TO THE DOC, GOT METHYLPREDNISOLONE AND TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE DENTAL PASTE...
I had been to the doctor and he recommended 1% hydrocortisone cream, which I was reluctant to use because he said not to tell the chemist what I was using it for because they wouldn't give it me as it is not supposed to be used on the the face especially not close to the eyes.
I used this for 3 weeks, and noticed it would peel some skin off, and even irritate, and looked as if it might be working. I had sex with the same girl for the first time again in months. 3 days later I had INTENSE itching, and a great deal of swelling only on the side of my penis where i had used the oil. I saw a doc and he decided that 1)i have HPV-he set me up with a derm.
Now if i even touch a baby wipe or adult wipe with my hand, i get a poison ivy-like rash, which is strange because i used both for years with no issues. Apparently, you can develop an allergy to anything at any time. So now I just use Kleenex Hand Towels and water when toilet paper is not enough, and i fired my dermatologist.
It all began following a camping trip when i was nine years old i came home with a lesion on my left temple terribly itchy and looked like poison ivy or a inflammed bug bite. I went to see several specialists, had many biopsey's showing it could be a bite reaction, leukeoclastic vasculitis, and 2 biopsey results showd up lymphocytic infiltrate. It has now been 16 years and the rash has spread to most of my body and the itch is just horrendous. The rash is definetely photosensitive.
I did some research in the morning and happened to stumble upon the fact that mangos are in the same family as poison ivy, oak, and sumac. I went into the immediate care office later that day to get clarification on what it would be.
It was itchy and looked like poison ivy. By week 5 he had spots of the rash on his neck, chin and face. His pediatrician put him on a 5 day dose of prednisone and hydrocortisone valerate 0.2%. During the next week he was removed from the sleeve and splint and began physical therapy. We sought the advice of a dermatologist who put him on an extended dose of prednisone and triamcinolone acetonide cream 0.1%. The rash went away after about a week. The next week he was patch tested using T.
Week 8 of Tela/Riba/Interferon Tx. Poison Ivy like rash and itching. All other side effects seem very minor compared to this right now. Benadryl at night, hydrocortizone 1% twice a day, Claritin, Zantac x2 /day, just got new cream from my dr (not sure it is working). Read about Zyrtec, thinking of adding it to the mix, anything to get me through the day. Somewhere read about ibuprofen, added that too. Tried Gold Bond, worked for 2 hrs, then seemed to make things worse.
Some are in streaks, little lines, singluar spots, and in the worst areas they form a little mass that eventually turns red with little scabs from scratching in my sleep. They remind me so much of poison ivy rash but I know that is not the case. I used to be plagued with poison ivy as a child on these same areas, and I even wondered if the toxin is still in my system and works it's way to the surface every so often. One thing I do know is it seems to occur after a change in diet.
I have been applying bacitracin w/zinc topically. And in addition to that, my doctor prescribed a 'mouth paste' called Triamcinolone Acetonide. This actually has been 'drawing out' the infection and with the little white gloves (all cotton) I purchased at Walgreen's, it's been a means to tolerate until they're gone. The swelling in my ankles, tops of feet and half-way up mid calf are what's killing me now.
Now they are doing it again so I'm going to throw my lipstick away and hopefully it goes away again and that will be a for sure sign that it is just a bacterial thing. I used Chapstick Medicated and that really helped it heal quicker.
with the small itchy bumps i thought it was some type of reaction but the tat is atleast 8months old......i used some cream that was prescribed to my 14month old daughter for diaper rash....and so far (2 days now) the itch has almost completely stop and the rash is starting to dry and clear....ill find out exactly what is called and let you all know.....
00 in the AM this turned into the worst itching that I have ever felt, worse than the worse case of poison ivy or oak. There is absolutely no preserntation of a rash though, just the severe itching.. My doc is great and he gave me a script for atarax during the day and doxepin at night because it causes teriedness. I still itch a bit but much better today.
But jesus crimminy, I just can't truly describe the whole experience with any justice. I used to get bad poison ivy and oak as a kid. Horribly rashed over, puffed up eyes, blisters between my fingers (strangely enough don't get it anymore as an adult). And then I had scarlet fever when I was in 7th grade and I remember most of my skin sluffed off while taking these oatmeal baths. Both situations were bad and very itchy. But by god they were a walk in the park compared to this sh1T!
My itching has now spread to the anal area as well as on my clitoris, which is sooo distressing. My hygiene is very good, but this has been an ongoing problem for two years. Before I go to bed at night, I shower again and this seems to help the itching. I always feel wet from a clear discharge which I believe makes the itching worse. I have to put some tp up there just to absorb the wetness all the time. My gyno has given me different ointments but to no avail. next he will do a biopsy.
OMGoodness, I thought I wasseriously alone, LOL. This is the most annoying thing in the world. It's like I have constant poison Ivy, hehe.... I started at 12 weeks, it subsided at 25 and now it's back with full force. Now I have been told that it is a DNA thing. Your body reacting to the DNA of a boy...... How many of you had BOYS???? I don't know the sex, and was wondering that maybe that is why my hormones are flaring up, and creating these hives......
My Doctor has been doing alot of research on this and he thinks he may have found a shot that it used for asthma, It is called Xolair. This is used to bring the IGE levels down, which is what is elevated in CU. Unfortunately, I do not have asthma so the insurance company will not allow it, stating that it would be experimental. My Doctor believes this will help they symptoms of cu.So for those of you that have CU, maybe you should have blood test done to see if your IGE levels are elevated.
I checked on the internet for possible side effects and there were none. I have used it for 5 days now and I do think it is helping, though the itching still comes back from time to time. I'll keep at it for a couple of weeks and let you all know if it worked.
Soaking my hands in Aveeno collidal oatmeal bath 3 times a day for 10 minutes help the blisters to dry up faster and when the dry skin comes you must keep your hands moisturized with and ointment like Aquahor and a prescribed medication as well that your dermatologist will give you. One way to know for sure if this is dermatitis is to see if there is any history of eczema in your family because this is genetic and no way to spread it to someone by touching them.
I am drinkning hot lemon water to cleanse my system and I was taking reacton but i really don't want to continully take pills like that. Is stress a big factor for these hives? Is six months a long time for them to last? I have seen an allergist but I was allergic to dust mites and still shellfish so should I go back to them and get tested again? What else can I do to get rid of these annoying hives? It's driving me crazy!
I have been fortunate not to break out into a rash, but the itch is constant. The itching, for me, is usually across my back and all over my breasts. All my other Victoria Secret bras were made in Indoneisia, SRI Lanika (never heard of it), the Philippines, and the Domenican Republic, but I'm at the point now that I may stop purchasing Victoria Secret. I have loved their products and only used their lingerie for the last 10 years.
also the kids hand i shook, my friend with the shorts is also friends with him and he got the same thing on his hand, im am yet to ask his about the other symptoms. so i think this is jock itch. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT IT IS NOT A STD, because i am not sexually active. not that im abstant, just not lucky lol. soo im fairly positive it is JOCK ITCH. i would be wayy to imbarised to talk to my parents. so im not sure what too do.
