Triamcinolone for athletes foot

Common Questions and Answers about Triamcinolone for athletes foot


Avatar_n_tn Hi, Topical corrticosteroids such as Triamcinolone ointment are indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of skin dermatoses. Athlete's foot will not respond to this. Over-the-counter antifungal ointment, lotion, powder or spray such as Terbinafine, Clotrimazole or Miconazole my help with mild conditions. If the infection does not respond to the topical anti-fungals, you may need to go toa doctor for a prescription oral medication.
Avatar_f_tn I was told two months ago that the lesions and dryness on the corners of my mouth were caused by angular cheilitis. The first treatment attempt was with OTC athletes foot cream. This did nothing to alleviate the infection. I was then given a prescrition for Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide. Within a week of using this cream 2x a day all visible signs of infection were gone. I continued to use the cream for 2-3 days after this. I enjoyed 3 or 4 days free from infection.
Avatar_f_tn From what I am understanding about Folliculitis is that it is a bacterial/fungal infection. I had very very bad athletes foot a few years back that lasted 9 months and I had to get on a very heavy dosage of pills and creams along with benzoyl peroxide before I could get rid of it. Could this be something similar? Could it still be Folliculitis however I need stronger or different meds? I took Clyndamiasin when I was a kid for acne for quite a while also.
Avatar_n_tn I've most recently taken a look at symptoms, which I've had for sometime. I've had hayfever for most of my 63 years and food allergies have developed over the years. .... clams nearly did me in once! Over the course of the last 5 ?? years things have developed. As I recall, I started taking Triamterene/HCTZ for fluids and high blood pressure. At about the same time my ankles became itchy, I thought because of the diuretic. ?? About a year ago, maybe longer, other things started to occur.
Avatar_m_tn At times my scrotum is red, warm and itchy – most times it is slightly red, warm and itchy but at other times it gets a lot worse. Around my anus it is warm/burning (almost like athletes foot OR like you ate LOTS of spicy food and just went to the bathroom) and at times, like today, a circle around the anus is red. My lips feel like they are sunburnt or very chapped and even more so when I purse them (pucker them) and release. The creases at my eyes feel itchy.
Avatar_n_tn Urine is a natural antiseptic and can be helpful with this particular foot issue, as well as certain athletes foot problems. Rinse off the Pepsodent, urinate down your leg and rub your affected foot in as much of the urine as you can get on there. The open blisters and distressed skin will actually sting a little ... this is a good thing. Give it a moment to do its work before you rinse and soap.
Avatar_n_tn Does anyone happen to know the correct term for it? I know it's athletes foot related for sure-but is it contact dermatitis ? Even more does anyone know a cure for it? I understand I would have to throw away daily used things or stop using them for a while (and or buy new covers for a while-phone-keypad-steering wheel covers) if there is a cure touching things that are already infected will only bring it back.
Avatar_n_tn So I got some Lamisil AT and started using it, I used it for 14 days and low and behold my rash is gone and has not come back for a whole year now. I did not even know you could get athletes foot on your hands but that's what it was. So for all you who are going through this its worth a try and it cant make it any worse than it already is.
1840891_tn?1431551393 When I first started getting them I was really resistant to the idea of using monistat or an athletes foot med around my mouth, so first I tried Aquaphor ointment, which did work one time on one crack but never again, then I tried antibiotic ointment, which never helped at all. Finally I broke down and tried the monistat and it has worked really well - they clear up within 2 days.
Avatar_n_tn I have the same problem. I figured it to be a fungus or athletes foot on my hand. so I started using athletes foot spray used as directed and poof no more blisters! you must use for recomended time or just like a fungus it will come back. hope this helps yall.
Avatar_n_tn Ok.... so the roommate has had absolutely no signs of this. The roommate also slept in the same bed as the flea-bitten cat. I slept on the couch where the flea bitten cat first spent most of her time.
Avatar_f_tn for about 6 months now i have had this itchy spot on my upper right arm within my tattoo. once i start scratching it gets worse and i have to stop myself or else ill bleed.once i started scratching the first spot it has now turned into 5. there is one now that is not on the tattoo. i have had this tattoo for over 7 years without a problem. its seems to itch once or twice a day and doesnt go away even if i cover it with creams and bandaids.
Avatar_n_tn I can remember seeing the bumps on my feet about 5-6 years ago, just thinking for some strange reason it was just bad athlete's foot. About 2 years ago my right hand started to become dry. The palm of my right hand. Lotion, no problem. again, again,again. same hand. then itch again you get the idea. Well today, I noticed that i have on my right forearm 4 spot that look exactly like an ant bite, but ITCH sooooooooo much worse.
Avatar_m_tn All tests came back just fine. She told me that I have atopic dermatitis and gave me Triamcinolone cream to try for three weeks to try to stop the itch/scratch cycle. The cream does not work and as I tried to explain to her, it is not skin related, it is internal. I do beleive that it has something to do with histamines and blood flow, but I think there must be a cure.
Avatar_n_tn Shamefully, for almost 8 years I have been getting very small itchy blisters on various spots on my arms and legs. The small blisters develop and immediately itch intensely, which is how I know they're there. They have a clear fluid inside, with no puss. When I scratch them in my sleep or when they break, they often weep a little amber colored liquid. Also, when I scratch them, more tiny blisters will develop around the original blister, signifying an infection.
288415_tn?1231634102 I rummaged around in the medicine cabinet and found some Ketoderm cream 2% that was prescribed to me 2 years ago for athlete's foot. I figured if it could stop the itch of athletes foot (which is a form of fungus) then maybe it would work on my ears. I know I shouldn't be self prescribing like this, but doctors don't seem to have the answer. I checked on the internet for possible side effects and there were none.
Avatar_n_tn i was in the army for 4 year and right out of basic i thought i had athletes foot but ive had it for 4 years and did everything i could for it and it wont go away. 2 months ago i started to notice the web of my fingers start to itch and peel too and now my eyelids are peeling, red, and sometimes itch and its covered my whole eyelid and started to spread around my tear duct.
Avatar_n_tn Ok, so I've been putting up with on again, off again itching for months on my labia, near my vaginal opening. Never "diagnosed" with HPV but I did get rid of a suspected wart this past year. Can you have a bacterial infection without discharge? It drives me CRAZY sometimes, the only thing that calms it is gold bond ointment, which is minty and refreshing but I'd like no itch. No "rash" that I can see, unless I give in and scratch.
Avatar_n_tn H-E-L-P!!! I've had this uncontrollable itch on my outer labia's for the past 7 years. Everyday I itch, I feel like a freak because I am always scratching (not in public). My labia gets sore from the scratching and I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none.
Avatar_n_tn I had put up with the problem for 11 months, gradually becoming worse. And now after 2 months of it having gone away, it has returned again. This time it happened much quicker, starting on the right lower eye, then moved to the left. The right under eye is very red, sore and dry. It feels so rough to touch. I have not worn make up today and have only applied vaseline and aqeous cream. I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be?
Avatar_n_tn red puffy itchy flakey eyelids, I went to a pharmacist, and she said she has had the same problem and that its a fungus, she told me to use lamasil (athletes' foot creme), and so far all the looks of the problem have gone away, its just still kinda itchy, but i think its working, i just started using it a couple of days ago, so we will see.
Avatar_f_tn If it doesn't get better in a week, then I'll try Tinactin fungal (foot cream used for atheletes foot).
Avatar_n_tn Try 1% clotrimazole cream (athletes foot/jock itch), over the counter. If your very red and inflamed use 1% cortisone cream, over the counter, until redness is gone, continue with clotrimazone. Prescription Lotrisone is too strong, not to be used on your face. Cut the sugar. Mae sure you're not iron-deficient. Buy good probiotics, ESPECIALLY if you'r taking or have taken antibiotics, or eat tons of FRESH, not canned, sauerkraut.
Avatar_n_tn I have tried lots of things to try and rlieve the discomfort and heal- i have tried canisten cream, hydrocrortisone cream, anusol- the best thing so far has been athletes foot powder (strange i know) used after showers on the area like talc- seems to dry the cuts up quickly and helps healing. hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn Additionally, many lines are starting to appear horizontally, starting from the base of my thumb and moving toward the middle of the palm. From what I know, I have athletes foot as well. The hands started to wrinkle after the athlete’s foot, so maybe the two are connected. I am going to see the DR ASAP and let you know what he thinks!
Avatar_n_tn We've waited as much as 3 weeks for the healing process, but it seems no matter how long we wait, they just reopen. They dont necessarily hurt all that much, but they tend to sting right after. I've tried a number of differnt remedies from Neosporin, to Vitamin E gel, to Bandaid cut stuff to hydoperoxide (which tends to be my test to see if they are still open (fizzing and stinging and that means they are still open). Ive even resorted to blistex. Nothing seems to fix this.
Avatar_n_tn But then I became more and more worried, and began to research it and that's when I came across this website. After reading everything I decided to go see my OBGYN. He of course tested me for Herpes, and even though I had read everything that you have all been through, and knowing that none of your tests had come back positive, I was still nervous. He also tested me for a yeast infection.
Avatar_n_tn My mother who is Type 2 Diabetic, experinced these tears along with yeast infections and athletes foot infections all through her 30's and 40's until her diabetes was diagnosed and she got her levels under control. I honestly find it rediculous that the modern medical community, which treats the majority of women's reproductive health problems as shameful, has no flipping idea what causes these tears or how to really treat them.
Avatar_n_tn My husband has been having skin rashes around his eyes, raised small red bumps, for several months and just won
Avatar_n_tn natures way, 480 mg 2. clotrimazole, generic antifungal from cvs, same as lotrimine af for jock itch and athletes foot, any will work 3. 3 advil twice a day for the first 2 or 3 days, but take as long as u want if it helps? i'm not a dr...
