Triamcinolone for yeast infection

Common Questions and Answers about Triamcinolone for yeast infection


Avatar_n_tn Rotted white hanging skin surrounding the area. I saw a dermatologist. He said it was a fungal/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and mostly occured from the long term antibiotic usage. The dermatologist at the time prescribed me Nyzoral cream. At this time I also noticed a rash/peeling in the folds of the skin between my legs. I applied the Nyzoral to this area and my armpit for over a week and saw no difference.
Avatar_f_tn I was using Nystatin & triamcinolone for a yeast infection and noticed on the information slip that it recommended not to use if you had herpes. I was wondering why or what possible effects of this cream would have since I was told I have herpes. Also, I've always wondered why doctors want to know if you have been diagnosed with herpes. Is there bad long term effects? I was diagnosed by a skin culture 25 years ago and was told it was a skin disease not a blood disease.
1606324_tn?1298297471 If i even wipe too much and irritate the skin like for example the labia will start to itch and I dont have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> or anything its just skin being irritated. I feel like I will lose my mind. Any help is appreciated.
Avatar_n_tn Hi Dr. Rockoff, I'm a 39 year old male. I had a fungal infection, most likely Candida, in my groin area (scrotum, penis, & some in inner thighs). I used an over-the-counter medicine, Micatin (Miconazole nitrate 2%), for jock itch. It started to sting and burn my skin, so I stopped using it after just two days. I went to a doctor (not a Dermatologist) and he prescribed a cream, Nystatin (100,000 USP) & triamcinolone (1 mg).
Avatar_m_tn fungal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> are the same thing. topical steroids can cause skin thinning. they aren't necessary for fungal infections either unless there is a lot of underlying irritation that needs dealt with. otc jock itch creams - just means over the counter. many different brands out there. ask your pharmacist for help if you can't find one on your own. no, stress doesn't cause yeast overgrowth.
Avatar_f_tn I developed a very itchy and painful rash that my physician diagnosed as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the last several months I have been on Nystatin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> Cream, keep the area clean, and wear cotton underwear. This rash has not cleared up. It's still red, hair follicles show pustules, and the whole area has a burning sensation. The stretch marks near it are inflamed and tender. What other treatments could be used to clear this up?
Avatar_m_tn That sounded a little odd to me, because the rash has been there <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a few months now, anyways he prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> 0.025%, Ketconazole 2%, and Bacitra/Polym (FO), they mixed all those together and I am supposed to put it on every night, I ve been doing this for 2 weeks now its getting a little better but its still noticeable, what do you think I should do?
Avatar_f_tn i have some left over triamcinolone acetonide cream ups 0.1% from a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> i got under my armpit from using a deodorant that was too strong <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me. i was wondering if i could use that to treat the warts because i dont have the money to go back to the doctor right now and dont want them to get worse! thanks in advance!
Avatar_n_tn I haven't had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years because of this. Talk to your doctor, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> more info, there may even be some info on the net about boric acid an yeast. You can get a small bag from the chemist in your local drug store, they can also give you the caplets...although they are sold in the 100''ll never run out. good luck!
Avatar_n_tn ) On top of having unprotected sex with my co worker, I was drinking a lot of beer / alcohol at the time, eating unhealthy, surfing a lot, sacrificing personal hygiene, and smoking cigarettes (which lowered my immune system) - pretty much asking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I was prescribed Mupirocin Calcium Cream, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> acetonide Cream, and Miconazole Nitrate. I cut down on sugar, beer and stayed out of the ocean to keep my groin dry.
Avatar_n_tn looked at it very carefully and stated that it was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. Prescribed Difucan and Nystatin w/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> and said to keep it dry w/ baby powder cornstarch. After 3 days the redness and burning on my scrotum was gone and the rash that had spread to my shaft had started to fade. After 10 days the scrotum is fine, but the rash that was on my shaft is now peeling as if the yeast has dead(die-off?) and now my body is trying to shed it.
Avatar_n_tn About a year and a half ago, my wife was prescribed Augmentin, a powerful antibiotic, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a cat bite. She got a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, as usual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> her with antibiotics. Shortly thereafter, I got a rash on my scrotum, which spread to my penis -- NOT usual (thank God). I tried treating the rash for jock-itch, to no avail. I went to the doctor, and he diagnosed it as eczema and prescribed triamcinolone 0.1% cream. It eventually went away.
Avatar_n_tn I called the doctor in the morning, to report of my worsened condition. My test results were negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> everything but a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. No bladder infection, no stds. Dr said to stop the antibiotic and take the second diflucan and continue with the cream. She said the burning urination was caused by the yeast infection. NOW- today when cleaning the area with a pH balancing wash, i see about a dozen pea size red bumps all over my genitals.
Avatar_f_tn have you been tested for STD's??
Avatar_n_tn I took him back and they said he had a yeast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. He has been on Nystatin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 6 days now but his rash is not looking any better except <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> that the redness is not as bad. Does anybody know any other things to try or suggestion of different Rx that would help clear this up?
715122_tn?1229750085 Also, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> and Nystatin is a combo steroid and antifungal, common to be rx'd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span>, but usually along with an internal antifungal med...
Avatar_n_tn I got tested for Genital herpes which came out negative, but I have been looking online and alot of people say that many people get a misdiagonosis of Herpes as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. That is when I was diagonosed with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> (Papsmear and they found alittle yeast). I've been lost ever since the Middle of November because this is when it seems to have been happening!
Avatar_f_tn A week after having sex with my new partner, I noticed itching and vaginal discharge extremely similar to a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. When I have sex with my partner I also notice a tick White pasty substance coming out if my vagina. I recently got over a really bad uti aswell.. The itchy finally whet away and the tick cheesy discharge reduced alot. But it recently has come back. There isn't any smell. I have some triamcinolone acetonide cream. Will this help if it is a yeast infection?
Avatar_n_tn CURRENT SITUATION. I currently have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> that I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about six or seven weeks. It is by far the worst one that I've ever had both in the amount of area that it covers and and the duration. Here is the sequence of events and treatment thus far. This started at the end of May. I noticed what I would call my typical yeast infection and applied monistat 7 for several days. It continued getting worse.
Avatar_n_tn I am also been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> 1% ointment on my hand since I was 12 years old that I use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> eczema on fingers. Symptoms improve slightly and do not go away fully but it gets embarrasing to go to doctor again. 1 year after encounter I have nonstop bleeding, turns out to be ectopic pregnancy with iud perfectly in place still. I have the iud removed but ectopic was not detected until after it burst the fallopian tube, fallopian tube removed. Still keep having mild symptoms 2 years later.
Avatar_n_tn Third, your symptoms are not at all typical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> genital herpes. Your sympotms also aren't typical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a fungal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, and your doctor agreed. Steroids like triamcinolone can make fungal infections a lot worse and all doctors know it. They are sometimes used for yeast or fungus if symptoms are severe, but only in combination with antifungal treatment. Same for hepres: steroids alone often make symptoms worse.
Avatar_f_tn IM VERY scared losing sleep and suffering from anxiety now I'm taking miconadale <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and it has a area red with tiny bumps afraid this might be another outbreak I'm freaking out because before last week never had anything like this and my boyfriend is somewhat health conscious so I doubt if I got anything from him!
Avatar_m_tn I also got tested for hsv and everything came back negative, except for hsv1 but i have tested positive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years. A year before this incident i tested positive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> hsv 1 at greater than 8.0. I also tested positive for BV, and she gave me antibiotics for this. Does this sound like herpes or a fungal infection? Could this be an hsv1 herpes infection on my genitals?
Avatar_n_tn She prescribed Valtrex and Nystatin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> acetonide Cream. I used both and In about 2 weeks symptoms cleared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the most part. Since the first outbreak, I have not had such severe symptoms. I still however have an ongoing problem of sensitive foreskin. (never had this in the past) There is usually a section on my foreskin that is uncomfortable. The skin looks a little more reddish there, however seems to have the same texture of the rest of the foreskin.
Avatar_n_tn Mention that you heard it could be a chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> on the vulva area. You may feel embarrassed to ask <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> these tests, but I am so thankful that I sucked it up and was straight up about what I thought it was. Now I know, yeast. It's better to know that not know and continue to be upset and/or infect other people! Hang in there, hope you find your answers & relief soon!
Avatar_n_tn I went to the Dr., he gave a bunch of antibiotics as a preventive measure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> STDs and urinal tract <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I also had a blood test that cleared me of all STDs, but the urine test showed that I was passing a stone, which might have explained the burning while urinating and the urinal tract infection. After I was done with the antibiotics and all, I developed this redness around the top of the penis and that little bump. The redness seems to come and go.
Avatar_n_tn I am pregnant and I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. My ob gyn prescribed me a cream that has nystantin and triamcinolone acetonide. I was reading the patient information leaflet and I got nervous when I read this among the precautions paragraphs: "there are no teratogenic studies with combined nystantin and triamcinolone acetonide. Corticoisteroids are generally teratogenic in laboratory animals when administered systematically at relatively low dosage levels.
