Can triamcinolone be used for ringworm

Common Questions and Answers about Can triamcinolone be used for ringworm


Avatar f tn I didn't get diagnosed but by using the medication and seeing which ones helped to clear the rash, i decided it is ringworm. I used Triamcinolone acetonide on it for the first day. After I stopped, it grew twice as big. So you were right to say that the steroids would make ringworm worse. So after the first day I used lotrimin and it still grew. It's been four days of me putting it on the whole day and it's drying up.
Avatar n tn I noticed after ejaculating the redness came back so then I called the Docter and asked if I can use a different cream that I used on a case of Ringworm that I had on my inner thigh about 1 year ago called SPECTAZOLE he said yes. So I used that cream and I still have the redness and the burning still bothers me after I urinate. It is really bothering me Doc I just want to be 100% cured.
883151 tn?1245518109 He has to stay on the antibiotic just incase they start to see something grow but so far it's not ringworm. That's good cause ringworm is gross but now he has to see a dermatologist. Aaaaauuuugggghhhh! He has so much stuff going on. He has really bad allergies, they've gotten so bad this year that I have to keep him inside for a week for his rash and red eyes to go away. He has problems with his teeth and is getting his second surgery on the second, he has respiratory problems.
Avatar n tn 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 n tn I went to my doctor and I was told that it was a fungus. I was given a cream called Nystatin and Triamcinolone. I have used it for almost three weeks now and the spots are still there and new ones keep appearing in the same areas. They itch here and there and they get red after I get out of the shower. The spots are circular and oblong and as said slightly raised. How long does it take for this cream to work? Additionally, does this cream have any affect on a womans menstral cycle?
Avatar m tn I am thingking that continued exposure to the triggering allergen can be contributing to the other symptoms. I think some investigative thinking on your part to determine what is causing the hives would go a long way in helping relieve all your symptoms. Feel better.
1765684 tn?1333822768 I've seen other posts that would indicate that the rash can continue for some time after tx, and while 12 weeks is a long time to still be getting new outbreaks, it may be that your pre-existing conditions cause it to take longer to settle down again. A dermatologist is definitely in order. Mine prescribed Triamcinolone ointment applied twice daily to the rash and Averno's Eczema Therapy cream applied twice daily everywhere. The combination has been very helpful. Good 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 cream for face. The cream for face seems to be working especially for the red patches that had started cracking and flaking. They are almost gone. Body is a different story I am STILL itching so bad. I noticed a couple of places on my arm that have a pronounced ring and depressed white area in the center--so now I'm thinking ringworm. (TOO)I have some econizole and am dotting it on just those areas that look like rings forming.
Avatar n tn I tried the Lysol wipes idea out of desperation and it helped the swelling go down, the redness and itchiness go away along with vaseline at night till I saw a dermatologist. He mentioned to me that it was hand excema. There is no cure for it but some things can be done to help. Perhaps you should ask your dermatologist about it or look it up.
Avatar n tn Hi, just thought i post some of my results, as ive had CRP for the past 8 years i remember being on minocyline and trying to take acidophillius and even though i was clearing the good bacteria in the acidophillius and bio yogurts i was eating caused it to come back rapidly, i know that long term use of minocyline can be horrible, i was on it for 3 years and i had to start having blood test regulary, it ruined the colour of my eyes and skin so i looked constantly unwell, so i cam off 4 months ago
Avatar n tn i plan to keep applying it in small doses at night for a while to be sure it is fully healed. hope this works for everyone else as well as it has for me! :)
Avatar f tn I would also like to know how I can be a part of this. I couldn't figure out for the longest time why the lower parts of my breasts had red bumps on them. I have worn victoria's secret for years and this problem had not developed till about 5 months ago. I too thought it was from sweating in the summertime. But they are still there, although they don't itch as frequently as they did a few months ago, it just looks terrible!
Avatar n tn I have been on meds( all in my post) and have had a MRSA test and that was neg. No one can tell me what this is. I had thought it could be from the hottub we used at the restort we were at 2 weeks before this started. I now have 3 tiny blisters starting on my left arm.Nothing seems to work to get rid of them or the ich. I guess I iched my other arm so much I got Cellulities from this.
Avatar f tn I have the same problem and have for some time. I have a large tattoo on my leg with a red flower in the middle of it. There are many different colors in this tattoo but only that red is giving me the problem. I've had this tattoo for years without any problems and now that one flower is pretty much ruined. I started out using neosporin and that did not work. My doctor then had me try Lotrimen cream. That seemed to help with the iching for a few days but it always comes back.
Avatar n tn I was so aware of it 24/7 and I was so worried it was something serious. I used cold sore lip balm (Herpecine-L) for about a week and thank god it went away. Try it, because if it's NOT a cold sore then the cold sore medicine won't work. At least you'll know what it isn't. Hope you get your answers, I know how annoying it can be! You may want to see a dermatologist if all else fails. Good luck!!!
Avatar n tn - file down the callused skin on my fingertips (sometimes really painful when there are fissures) with a fine grade emery board - apply antibiotic ointment and cover with rubber gloves (easiest), finger cots (rubber covers, kind of like condoms) or band aids - moisturize with Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy Plus Intensive Repair Enriched Lotion (has no odor and works better than others I've tried) when not wearing gloves Thanks for all your posts.
Avatar n tn Medications for herpies dont help, only thing that takes the itch away temporarly is to take a shower. It seems to relieve it for a while. Any clue as to what it can be and how to handle it would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I've had the exact same thing for almost 4 years now. I tend to get the bumps after crying or if my eyes tear up enough to water the skin around my eyes. I've been trying to see a Dermatologist buy they refuse to see me because it's around my eyes. I went to EVERY type of eye doctor and they know that it's not herpes, but they don't know what it is. It got soo bad I started using my Son's cream for eczema (fluticasone prop 0.05% cream) and as long as I use it once every day it keeps it away.
Avatar n tn also ask for oilatum bath addictive which can be used for the face and body which locks in moisture. 9.) most important, dont touch the skin or itch it, try and aviod changing temperature or humidity rapidly. 10.) use natural moisturisers that can be brought over the counter the best one is Aveeno cream.
Avatar n tn I think a few of you most definitely have scabies- I'm surprised that no one (esp if you've seen a doctor) has tested for, or even mentioned, scabies as a possibility (unless they did & you just didn't say so in your post)- bc a number of posts have mentioned the most common tell-tale signs of scabies- most especially itchiness between fingers &/or toes, as well as the mention of the itchiness getting worse at night- scabies are not only limited to fingers & toes though, which are th
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Has anybody tried Reflexology for this? You'd be amazed at the results it can have as it can be used to stimulate the adrenal gland which releases cortisole. Also try eating lots of salad, fruit and raw veg as these are all cooling foods. Im training to be a reflexologist at the mo and my tutor (who is an amazing woman) has a theory that things which irritate/stress you emotionally can irritate/stress you physically.
Avatar m tn But currently am not taking anything. Thats all i can think of for now. Hopefully this will help in some way for us to get to the bottom of this. I am so thankful that others have reported their issues with this. Cause its about the only support i can find.
