Common Questions and Answers about Is triamcinolone used for poison ivy


Avatar m tn Hi Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% is a prescription topical steroid and can be used for the treatment of poison ivy. However, you should take it under medical supervision. The other treatments include non-steroidal topical medications, calamine lotion, oral antihistamines (Benadryl), and/or oral steroids (prednisone) or a steroid shot. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I found a PDF file paper that is a notice that a bio-pharmaceutical company in Mississippi is working with a potential cure for poison ivy. It is in the works !!! so help may be a stones through away. Once a remedy or potential cure is found they will then focus on other parts of the problem and may recognize the reoccurring events as a weakness in the lymph nods.
1391441 tn?1333851561 It's very much like having poison ivy - 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?
Avatar n tn Hi, Triamcinolone acetonide cream is indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Triamcinolone Acetonide(CORTICOSTEROIDS)is used to treat swelling, inflammation, and itching of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rashes, insect bites, poison ivy, allergies and other irritations. Corticosteroids for the skin are available in different strengths and forms (e.g., creams, ointments, lotions and gels).
Avatar n tn i have moluscum contagiosum and i use cortizone cream to reduce the itch and he can use the calamine lotion you would put on poison ivy can stop the itch too.. i have also been using this cream called triamcinolone acetonide ointment USP 0.1% im not sure if its actually working to get rid of it but ive noticed its slowing going away and i dont itch. you can also get cream called aldara.. its used for genetal warts but it does stop the itch.
Avatar n tn i was told by our medic that it was heat rash and he gave me some triamcinolone acetonide cream. I used the cream for a couple days and noticed that the rash started to heal. about a week later when i returned home from training the rash returned. now the cream seems to have no effect and it is getting worse by the day. there are no pustules or ingrown hairs, just red itchy bumps that wont go away. poison ivy and sumack have already been ruled out.
Avatar m tn Hello, Poison ivy is a form of contact dermatitis caused by exposure to the poison ivy plant. It is less likely for poison ivy 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.
Avatar f tn 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 poison ivy. 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.
Avatar n tn The doctor gave me a shot, like the ones given for severe poison ivy. 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.
Avatar n tn I had been to the doctor and he recommended 1% hydrocortisone cream, which I was reluctant to use because he said not to tell the chemist what I was using it for because they wouldn't give it me as it is not supposed to be used on the the face especially not close to the eyes.
Avatar n tn I used this for 3 weeks, and noticed it would peel some skin off, and even irritate, and looked as if it might be working. I had sex with the same girl for the first time again in months. 3 days later I had INTENSE itching, and a great deal of swelling only on the side of my penis where i had used the oil. I saw a doc and he decided that 1)i have HPV-he set me up with a derm.
Avatar n tn Now if i even touch a baby wipe or adult wipe with my hand, i get a poison ivy-like rash, which is strange because i used both for years with no issues. Apparently, you can develop an allergy to anything at any time. So now I just use Kleenex Hand Towels and water when toilet paper is not enough, and i fired my dermatologist.
Avatar m tn I did some research in the morning and happened to stumble upon the fact that mangos are in the same family as poison ivy, oak, and sumac. I went into the immediate care office later that day to get clarification on what it would be.
Avatar m tn I bought a cream off ebay for poison ivy that helps the itching. It is made with jewelweed that is great. it has other stuff in it also. It seems to start every spring and usually when I start cleaning out flower beds and gardening. It seems to happen more when I am out in nature and or dealing with outdoor plants and such. If I scratch a part of my body that is not currently affected, it seems to spread there too.
Avatar f tn It was itchy and looked like poison ivy. 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.
Avatar f tn 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 poison ivy 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.
1654058 tn?1407162666 Week 8 of Tela/Riba/Interferon Tx. Poison Ivy 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.
Avatar n tn 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 poison ivy 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.
5171728 tn?1364667389 I have been applying bacitracin w/zinc topically. And in addition to that, my doctor prescribed a 'mouth paste' called Triamcinolone Acetonide. This actually has been 'drawing out' the infection and with the little white gloves (all cotton) I purchased at Walgreen's, it's been a means to tolerate until they're gone. The swelling in my ankles, tops of feet and half-way up mid calf are what's killing me now.
Avatar f tn with the small itchy bumps i thought it was some type of reaction but the tat is atleast 8months old......i used some cream that was prescribed to my 14month old daughter for diaper rash....and so far (2 days now) the itch has almost completely stop and the rash is starting to dry and clear....ill find out exactly what is called and let you all know.....
80575 tn?1207135964 00 in the AM this turned into the worst itching that I have ever felt, worse than the worse case of poison ivy 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.
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 m tn I then use conditioner for head and beard area, dry my face then use double base moisturiser on the face, which is used very minimally, a tiny blob for each area on the face. I now have a great complexion and you would never know that i have web derm. The selsun shampoo is all i use to cleanse my face. i hope this info helps others as it did for me, as i said i thought i'd be trapped forever with this horrible skin condition. Now i have my life back thanks to this simple regime.
Avatar n tn My itching has now spread to the anal area as well as on my clitoris, which is sooo distressing. My hygiene is very good, but this has been an ongoing problem for two years. Before I go to bed at night, I shower again and this seems to help the itching. I always feel wet from a clear discharge which I believe makes the itching worse. I have to put some tp up there just to absorb the wetness all the time. My gyno has given me different ointments but to no avail. next he will do a biopsy.
Avatar f tn I am Australian and Eucalyptus Oil is used as a Antiseptic for cuts, bites or Muscular Arches Pains , it is widely used here in Australia and maybe not be available in other Countries
149918 tn?1208132344 But jesus crimminy, I just can't truly describe the whole experience with any justice. I used to get bad poison ivy 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!
288415 tn?1231634102 I checked on the internet for possible side effects and there were none. I have used it for 5 days now and I do think it is helping, though the itching still comes back from time to time. I'll keep at it for a couple of weeks and let you all know if it worked.
Avatar n tn At first I thought it could be poison ivy or something I picked up from a shopping cart. I have used all kinds of lip balm, mostly Neutrogena. In order to get relief I tried everything including Abreva. Then I put on some Neosporin antibiotic cream (the kind you use for cuts) and then on top of that Iuse Neosporin Lip Health. This comes in a day time tube with SPF 20 and a nightime tub that has no SPF. I just slather it on. The next day my lips felt so much better.
97615 tn?1212682189 My Doctor has been doing alot of research on this and he thinks he may have found a shot that it used for asthma, It is called Xolair. This is used to bring the IGE levels down, which is what is elevated in CU. Unfortunately, I do not have asthma so the insurance company will not allow it, stating that it would be experimental. My Doctor believes this will help they symptoms of cu.So for those of you that have CU, maybe you should have blood test done to see if your IGE levels are elevated.
