Avatar m tn Visual diagnosis 3 years ago as plaque psoriasis in the genital area and prescribed Triamcinolone cream 1%. When I felt itchy, I began using the cream immediately. Within a week to 2 weeks of using a small amount of the cream daily my skin healed. Unfortunately it would recur within about a month. Visited derm dr. recently and he diagnosed as herpes. I have not used the cream and have had a lot of pain and outbreak in the same 2 sites.
Avatar n tn can triamcinolone acetonide cream be used on "tags"? I am 70 yrs young and have many tags all over the upper parts of my body between my waist and up to and including my neck. Also, I have a tube of it that has the date of Jun 10 on the crimp. Does that mean it isn't good anymore?.
Avatar m tn I have, however been diagnosed with psoriasis. I was diagnosed with psoriasis six years ago. I was prescribed triamcinolone acetonide and ultravate. They were wonderful for my psoriasis, but went several years without health insurance and I was unable to refill my prescription. Recently, I was able to get more triamcinolone. Although I have not been diagnosed with acne, I have had trouble with breakouts of red spots and flaky, dry skin on different areas of my face for years.
1606324 tn?1298297471 Can I use the Triamcinolone cream on my armpits? I have eczema but my skin is also very sensitive, a small minor irritation quickly turns into some ugly inflamed itching crisis. The deodorant I was wearing was irritating my armpit so i scratched a little, and now it itches more and more and is sore. :( I have this same probem anywhere on my skin. Was wondering if it was safe to use it around the genital area also.
Avatar n tn Lately I've noticed skin peeling around a larger area of my armpit, underneath also above in the shoulder area, like a sunburn peeling with some discoloration. I started on accidopollus and called my derm. Put me on Triamcinolone Acteonide Cream, 0.1% at this time I did notice a slight soreness and swelling in my armpit glands After researching I realize it could be inflammation due to the yeast infection as well.
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.
Avatar n tn is it safe to use triamcinolone acetonide cream on the base area of your penis? is it safe to use on the clitoral area of your vagina?
Avatar m tn 5% on my 6 month old baby for eczema 3 or 4 times in a month (never to his face). Also applied triamcinolone .1 % 3 times after a week of using hydrocortisone (never to his face). No one explained to me in detail how to apply these. I am upset because I now believe my baby never needed these in the first place. I actually stopped using these and tried bath treatments along with lotions and Vaseline which helped keep the eczema at bay until it finally went away at 10 months of age.
Avatar m tn Hives all over. I'm allergic to the triamcinolone right? But ya know, she had the nerve to tell me I may have been allergic to the needle! The metal! What?? So I just want to know how serious this is. This one website says that hives are a serious side effect for which I should seek emergency medical help. But right now I'm just taking some benedryl and hoping it goes away like last time (and I think it is...) But how serious is an allergic reaction to triamcinolone?
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 Around 13 I was prescribed triamcinolone acetonide cream usp 0.1% for my eczema. There was a misscommunication and I ended up using it for 3 years basically 2 times a day. Could this have any way had affected puberty? My growth? My penis growth? I've read that topical steroid creams if used for extensive times can effect your growth. Could this cream have affected my growth? I asked my dermatologist and he said no, that this specific cream was to weak to have any harm on me.
Avatar n tn I have some itch, is Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP 0.1% a good cream for this? Are there any side effects to this cream?
Avatar n tn prescribed Fluocinonide cream usp 0.05 by TARO, I also have on hand Triamcinolone Acetonide cream usp 0.1. Are they interchangeable The rash is getting larger and itches as it grows.
Avatar m tn I've tried moisturizers and vitamin E and I stay end up with a tight feeling sore face and I won't be able to get to the dermatologists for a couple months, and last night I just found Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream 0.1% which I believe my doctor gave to me awhile ago when I complained about dry skin before it was this bad.
Avatar m tn I was prescibed triamcinolone acetonide for lower extremeties. I have excema and had a very dry winter and my upper body is dry, itchy, and raw. The above takes the itch away at night when I scratch in sleep. Is upper body application OK?
Avatar n tn I am suffered from eczema, and the dcotor gave me a cream called u-triamcinolone, i would like to know is there any side-effcets i use it twice a day?
Avatar n tn Dr.- I had been prescribed Nystatn and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream last fall for a fungal infection on the tip and upper shaft of my circumsized penis. It has recently been brought to my attention that Triamcinolone is a steriod and can have adverse effects on skin tissue after it was re-prescribed to me in a 30g tube, so I discontinued use. I used it over a 5 month period refilling the 15g tube approximately 4 times after the initial prescription.
Avatar m tn One of my mom's friends who is a retired nurse suggested the use of a topical steroid known as triamcinolone acetonide. She said it cured her son's acne. So I gave it a shot. Huge improvement. Stopped using after it ran out. Noticed my skin became extremely thin and sensitive. I got back on it after a few months and when I had broke out BAD. The cream left scars of every pimple ( dark spots ) all over my face and I still have them 'til this day.
Avatar f tn cancer or nothing like that) but im starting to get a few bumps around my anus. my guess is warts but im not 100% sure. i have some left over triamcinolone acetonide cream ups 0.1% from a yeast infection i got under my armpit from using a deodorant that was too strong for 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 She prescribed me diflucan, an antibiotic, and nystatin and triamcinolone acetonide cream. I wasn't able to immediately pick up the medications, and didn't begin treatment for another 10 hours or so. The next day I was still in moderate pain with extremely painful urination. I continued with the antibiotic and triamcinolone cream. Initially the cream gave me temporary relief. However my condition worsened to the point that i was waking up in pain, and in tears every time i went to the bathroom.
Avatar m tn I used some gloves (Nitrile Exam Gloves) and i had a bad irritation because of that. I stoped used the gloves anymore and I went to the doctor. He gaved me NYSTATIN and TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE OINTMENT USP. It worked for a couple of days but then the ointment was gone , and i had no more refill. After only one day, the irritation started again. I went to the doctor again and he gaved me TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE CREAM USP, 0.1%.
Avatar n tn I used Triamcinolone Acetonide on my face maybe a couple times a week for a couple years, and now its all red and irritated when I dont even scratch it. How can I improve the skin on my face?
Avatar f tn I was prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP 0.1% for it. I am to use it inside of my mouth on my cheeks and gums 4 times a day. The warnings say not to get it in your mouth or if swallowed to contact your local poison control center. I am afraid to use it. I contacted the pharmacy where I got it filled and he didnt want to comment on it. He said I should contact my doctor. I contacted them a few days ago and didnt get a reply as of yet. Is it safe to use as I was told?
Avatar n tn I used triamcinolone for my exzema. The cream didnt do me any good so I had to use the ointment. It worked really good for my exzema but I did gain some weight which isnt so bad. But after I ran out or stopped using the cream my skin on my face would become darker and my lips and face would like break out. How and what can I do to prevent this; I keep going back to the ointment to make it better but is there any other way?
