Common Questions and Answers about Can triamcinolone be used for acne


Avatar m tn However, they should not be used for acne or rosacea. Although they reduce inflammation, topical steroids can actually make acne worse. They should also only be used on the face if advised by a doctor because they cause thinning of the skin. Steroids are usually only used for a short period of time. It is not clear from your post how long ago this occured. Most acne scarring is superficial and heals within one year.
Avatar n tn In addition to the triam cream, he recommended I continue to use differin all over my face, including my temples, which seems to be irritating this area more(I've been using that med for over a year for my regular skin problems). In addition, other areas of my face, 1 side of my nose & my entire chin area are now breaking out in large pus-filled nodules. It is out of control. Now for my questions: Have I done permanent damage to my skin because of the length of time I used the BV?
Avatar f tn Hello, A complete clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and a management of your condition. It may not be possible merely on the basis of a picture. From your symptoms it seems that these could be pimples, cysts or Keratosis pilaris. Acne occurs due to a blockage of oil underneath the skin and builds up with bacteria causing inflammation and develops into a pimple.
Avatar m tn There seems to be no correlation to any food born allergies at this point that we can tell. As you know identifying food allergies can be difficult. Like I said the allergist only identified minor allergic to normal things. Non were considered severe. We have gone the supplement route B complex, B6, Zinc and Fish oils and no change at all to the condition. Also tried multivitamins.
Avatar n tn Hi, Steroid injections have become a common treatment of problem scars. The steroid used for intralesional injection is triamcinolone. Triamcinolone injections have been the standard treatment to induce flattening, fading, and decreased symptomatology of hypertrophied scars. However, minor adverse effects of triamcinolone injections include hypopigmentation and subcutaneous atrophy.More favorable response to steroid injections is seen in the treatment of hypertrophic scars over keloids.
Avatar f tn Hi, You can apply for Comedonal acne tretinoin 0.025% cream or adapalene 0.1% gel or tazarotene 0.1% gel; alpha hydroxyl acid preparation. If you are having inflammatory acne then tetracycline or doxycycline or minocycline; benzoyl peroxide 5% gel; azelaic acid 20% cream; clindamycin 1% lotion or cream; erythromycin 2% gel or cream. If you are having recalcitrant acne in women then probably oral contraceptive containing norgestimate 0.25 mg and ethinyl estradiol 0.
Avatar m tn Products which contain AHAs or Urea will help improve its appearance. Your doctor may prescribe Retin-A (also used for acne) or Triamcinolone Acetonide, a synthetic corticosteriod, if keratotis pilaris is diagnosed. This could also be allergic contact dermatitis which is much more likely to itch than keratotis pilaris. Take an anti-histamine tablet such as Piriton (chlorphenamine maleate) which is available without prescription. Applying Hydrocortizone cream to an allergic reaction will help.
1363351 tn?1277784788 sometimes they have white heads and when i squeeze them it'll be like a pimple. i've tried acne medicine for it, but it hasn't helped. it's not really urgent, i'd just like to get rid of it.
Avatar m tn A mild soap or soap substitute, such as Dove or Cetaphil should be used for washing. Scrubbing should be avoided. I sincerely advice you to get the diagnosis confirmed from a dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Hello, I had mutual unprotected oral sex with a TS escort 3 months ago and am concerned on what may be the onset of genital herpes or warts. Five days after the encounter, I was tested by my primary physician for gonoreah, syphlis, chlamydia, hepatitis B, and HIV which all came back negative. About a month later the tip of my penis started "tingling" for various lengths of time.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be due to contact dermatitis or pompholyx. It is characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles which itch and then peel off. As a result the skin may also fissure. It is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.
583092 tn?1218131807 If complications include infections (often of Staphylococcus aureus), antibiotics may be employed. The immunosuppressant Tacrolimus or pimecrolimus can be used as a topical preparation in the treatment of severe atopic dermatitis instead of traditional steroid creams. However, there can be unpleasant side effects in some patients such as intense stinging or burning. Let us know if you need any further information.
Avatar f tn Exfoliation, intensive moisturizing creams, creams and lotions containing alpha hydroxy acids and urea may be used to temporarily improve the appearance and texture of affected skin. In my opinion you should talk to a cosmetologist/dermatologist about this and get these evaluated. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

Avatar f tn What does skin atrophy look like? I used a steroid cream Triamcinolone on my face months back. I used it periodically over the course of 3 to 4 months. Now my facial skin looks almost scarred. I can't quite tell if it is permanent scarring or atrophy. Can a steroid cream produce scarring? Is this reversible? How long does it usually take to reverse?
Avatar n tn org/wiki/Seborrhoeic_dermatitis Soaps and detergents such as sodium laureate sulfate may precipitate a flare-up, as they strip moisture from the top layers of the skin, and the drying property of these can cause flare-ups and may worsen the condition. Accordingly a suitable alternative should be used instead. Among dermatologist recommended treatments are shampoos containing coal tar, ciclopiroxolamine, ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, or zinc pyrithione.
Avatar m tn I used Clinique's three step Acne Solutions system for three days. The system consists of a salicylic acid foam cleanser, a salicylic acid toner, and an oil-free benzoyl peroxide moisturizer. I have used salicylic acid before without incident, so I don't think it was the cause of the problem. The day after I started using these products, my whiteheads started clearing up. The next day, my eyelids were swollen and flaky. I used it for a third day, being extra cautious and avoiding my eyes.
Avatar n tn I used to get many injections for my acne, mostly in my chin area. None of them have left a scar or indent in my face. It does in the beginning, but as Dr. Rockoff mentioned they go away after a few months. I also use Retin-A which also helps scars a bit. My doctor mentioned to me that the amount of injection used is very important. For example, if he injects them once and they come back again, he won't inject them again until a month has passed.
Avatar m tn It flakes every day. My eyes are swollen and flaky. Everything stings, even touch. What can I do for real relief? How long will this last?
Avatar f tn THe medication is a steroid and is for inflammation. You can use it for 2 weeks or so without problem. Its not for long term us. Use the search feature and archives there is a long discussion about this problem you may find useful.
Avatar n tn This one is real itchy and the ones on my legs don't itch. I know this can be from cryo which I tested postive for prior to tx but am now undectable (which I've heard can be false). I cleared at week 11 for the HCV as well. I'm awaiting biopsy results but am very anxious. I've had this for 3 weeks now. Searching on the internet the hive-like rash looks like a form of vasculitis and the other one looks like that lichen planus (sp?).
Avatar n tn I went to a walk in clinic and the provider thought it could be Herpes, with a remote possibility of Yeast. She prescribed Valtrex and Nystatin Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream. I used both and In about 2 weeks symptoms cleared for the most part. Since the first outbreak, I have not had such severe symptoms. I am happy to Negative Blood Tests for Herpes (Herpeselect) HIV, Clamydia etc...5 months after exposure. 11 months out I tested neg. to herpes again using herpeselect.
Avatar n tn Recognizing and limiting emotional stress. Acretin contains tretinoin which should be used with caution and only after a dermatologist’s guidance. But it is useful for acne or lichen sclerosus. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn A few days should be fine,desonide can be used just to tide over,a short course,once a day.
Avatar m tn I also have the eczema behind my ears and use Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment (used only for the trunk of the body) but when I use it behind my ears it slowly makes a great recovery with all the pigment.
Avatar n tn For some reason young women seem to be prone to an endless cycle of dryness and irritation of the lips. This results in what some people call Chapstick addiction. Of course, it isn't a real addiction; it's just that all you have to do is think about your lips and you have to lick them. In addition, you are looking at your lips very closely, or else you wouldn't be able to describe minor and insignificant changes in such detail.
Avatar n tn I had this rash a few times. Just about a few weeks ago after my surgery it got worst. Maybe a reaction to the meds that was giving me. Hydrocortisone was NOT working at all. Anything oily made it itch like the dickens. I was desperate and found this cream that my aunt used, "Triamcinolone Acetonide. I noticed the itching stopped and he rash started clearing away. I thought it was just me until I read your comment stegosaurus81. Best of luck!
Avatar f tn Anti-itch drugs, often antihistamine, may reduce the itch during a flare up of eczema, and the reduced scratching in turn reduces damage and irritation to the skin. For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide). Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema.
Avatar n tn Sounds like your doctors are trying to find the problem, but have you had a plain xray for sinusitis? Clear sinus drainage can come out the ear when the eustation tube is blocked. Another, but quite rare, problem would be CSF fluid drainage. That is the fluid from the spine coming out the ear. It is high in glucose and will taste sweet if you tasted it. Often when this fluid gets into the outer ear, peeling may occur.
Avatar n tn Laura: There are many ill-defined itchy conditions which make people miserable and respond poorly or erratically to treatment. If scratched--and they usually are--they often leave scars which I suppose can be reminiscent of chickenpox, and I assume that is what you are describing. Doctors sometimes refer to this as "prurigo nodularis," which more or less restates our ignorance in Latin. Cause is unknown.
