Triamcinolone poison ivy

Common Questions and Answers about Triamcinolone poison ivy


Hi, I was wondering about a possible treatment for extreme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>. My husband had initially a small patch on his left forearm, that was almost a week and a half ago. Now its spread from his forearm to both arms (top and bottom), his ear, the small of his back, the back of his neck, and his feet (where he wasnt even exposed to the poison ivy!) Its become so itchy that he no longer sleeps well as he continually wakes up due to him scratching himself in his sleep.
triamcinolone acetonide(CORTICOSTEROIDS)is used to treat swelling, inflammation, and itching of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rashes, insect bites, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>, allergies and other irritations. Corticosteroids for the skin are available in different strengths and forms (e.g., creams, ointments, lotions and gels). The type of medication used depends on the location of your condition and the type of skin problem being treated.
It's very much like having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> - 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?

Hello, poison ivy is a form of contact dermatitis caused by exposure to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> plant. It is less likely for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> 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.
It would resemble <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>, with small blisters that itch and swell, but goes away in a day or so. Each blister has a noticeable black dot in the middle, and after a few days the blister goes away and the skin dies where it was. This flairs up about every 3-5 months. When I went to my general doctor he thought it might be mild Eczema and prescribed triamcinolone acetonide. What does this sound like to you?
The doctor gave me a shot, like the ones given for severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>. 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.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>. 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.
I believe I got this problem about 2 and a half years ago from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> oak. Parts of the rest of my body were affected, though the symptoms were more like the typical spider-bite-like swelling. Only the backs of my hands have a problem today. I did not apply the triamcinolone acetonide cream I was prescribed after the initial problem occurred frequently or very much at all. Recently I applied the cream every day and the rash disappeared.
(it seems to be moving by where i touch perhaps) It looks different in different places, Though in most placesit looks like tiny red bumps- on my finger and ears it looks like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>-tiny little white bumps (i haven't touched any plants). The rash seemed to start on my ears. The weather here has changed significantly getting very hot and humid and i run outdoors so heat rash was the best i could come up with, but it just seems too coincidental to be following this other problem.
Went back in and she said it looked like a yeast infection. She prescribed Nystatin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span>. It cleared it right up. However it came back about a week and a half later. Then I was given fluconazole. Doc had me on that for 1 week. If anything it seemed like it made it worse. VERY ITCHY! Now doc is having me go see a dermatologist in 3 weeks to see exactly what it is. I'm 25 years old, married with 2 kids, healthy and have NEVER had any problems with yeast.
He said <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>, based on a newly appearing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>-type rash on my arms and legs and prescribed fluocinonide and Benedryl. I couldn't think of any possible exposure to poison ivy. The thickness of the hives went down, but the inflammed skin all instantly died. It continued to spread and itch. (I washed everything I had touched and scrubbed my whole body with detergent three times to ward off any spreading of the supposed urishol exposure.
Took four days to get a dermatologist appointment. He said <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>, based on a newly appearing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>-type rash on my arms and legs and prescribed fluocinonide and Benedryl. I couldn't think of any possible exposure to poison ivy. The thickness of the hives went down, but the inflammed skin all instantly died. It continued to spread and itch.
I've had a rash for about 6 months now. It started on the back of my leg and my dr. thought it was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>/sumac rash. Needless, to say in July a bunch of little bumps appeared on my arms and legs (itchy and burning type of bumps). He then thought it was chicken pox but it turns out that it is also not that. I still have them and I've gone to a dermatologist who biopsied them and tested for lupus. He has since diagnosed me w/PMLE and has started me on UV light therapy.
It was itchy and looked like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>. 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.
I did some research in the morning and happened to stumble upon the fact that mangos are in the same family as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>, oak, and sumac. I went into the immediate care office later that day to get clarification on what it would be.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> 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.
Week 8 of Tela/Riba/Interferon Tx. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> 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.
I think I mentioned that others have had bad rashes, I saw the pictures some reminded me of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> or chicken pox. You could also try a dermotologist. The first time I treated I could get no help from my hepatologist, he kept telling me my side effects were not related to my tx, they were.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> 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.
Hey everybody, I got the same stuff on my lips as everyone of you mentioned above. Actually, it got even worse, it spread out on bottom of my nose, and lately I got blisters on top of my hand. I went to the doctor and she said: "poison ivy". I told her that I wasn't doing anything outdoor before the bumps pop up. She said that could take 2-3 weeks to develop. I wasn't sure that she was right, but I remembered couple weeks ago I did remove some crawling plant off of my house.
00 in the AM this turned into the worst itching that I have ever felt, worse than the worse case of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> 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.
she labeled it folliculitis, gave me orial 1)prednisone 20 mg tab 2 po qam x3d. 2)nystatin/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>triamcinolone</span> cream TID basically to cover all the baces, she gave me rx antibiotic cream to treat what might be growing in my skin, and the prednisone, in case it is an allergic thing. telling me she dnk what it is.
But jesus crimminy, I just can't truly describe the whole experience with any justice. I used to get bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span> 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!
OMGoodness, I thought I wasseriously alone, LOL. This is the most annoying thing in the world. It's like I have constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>, 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......
•Foods (commonly eggs, shellfish, nuts, berries, dyes, or other additives) •Drugs (any drug can touch off an allergic reaction, although allergies to penicillin, sulfa, and aspirin are especially common) •Pollens and plants (nettles, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ivy</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> oak, and so on) •Animal fur •Insect bites or stings •Exposure to heat, cold, or sunshine Hives are a nuisance, but are not usually dangerous.
It felt like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>poison</span> oak had somehow gotten in my underwear. I have been to three doctors, and tried every oc medication on the market, as well as natural medication, and what ever the doctors perscribe. I will get temporary reliefe, and think it is finally going away, and then bam! It's back. I was glad to see I was not alone with this problem. The doctors said my test all came back normal, and they are not sure what I have. I do have a thyroid problem also and take sythroid.
