Avatar f tn as it investigates the new reports involving the heart surgery drug and the second steroid, called triamcinolone acetonide. The company issued a statement Monday that said it was reviewing the FDA's latest advisory, but is continuing to cooperate with the FDA and other federal and state agencies looking into the outbreak.

471737 tn?1327256051 Occasionally, when it really gets out of control, he gives me an injection of long-acting Kenacort-40 (triamcinolone acetonide). Sometimes, when the eczema is moderate and I do not need to visit him, I will buy my own steroid and antibiotic creams. The reason I asked was because I prefer to use a newer generation steroid like mometasone, though it is more of low-medium potency. However, mometasone does not come in a combination cream with an antibiotic on the market.

I applied this to my lips and on my chin where I could see the rash. The bumps on my lips went away sometime later on either sunday night (Jan. 10th) or monday morning (Jan. 11th).
Avatar f tn Well, I just had my second injection so, of course, I haven't had hair loss yet -- but I know it is coming. I've thought about just shaving my head -- and be done with it and wear pretty scarves, turbans, and ball caps. But, if I only lose half of my hair and then it grows back quickly, it won't be such a dreadful thing. But does it grow back quickly? This is a tough issue because I've heard that it is different for different people.

Avatar m tn I applied triamcinolone acetonide cream (60mg) for two weeks following this and it dissappeared. Would the daily application of this medicine affect a Clearview HIV 1/2 test? which was negative at the 6 week mark? 3.) Six weeks following exposure I get very congested and had a significant cough that produced a great deal of phlegm from both my coughing and nose. I took a Depo Medrol Shot 80mg on April 22nd and the symptoms subsided in one week, though I still cough.
Avatar n tn he uses a sunburn spray (or lotion) from the local drugstore, any brand, that has lidocaine and aloe, and a prescription from his dr. triamcinolone acetonide cream 0.1%.

1840891 tn?1431551393 Another one that works for canker sores inside the mouth is Triamcinolone Acetonide dental paste. Usually I just use lysine. My hepatologist does a PCR at 12 weeks and 24 weeks post tx. If it will make you feel better to do one at 6 weeks, it certainly can't hurt. I had some nasty post-tx digestion problems, waking up with horrible pain. Besides getting a good tummy massage, I found that not eating anything that is hard to digest, nuts, seeds and cheese, helped enormously. I can eat them now.
Avatar n tn this time the rash started on my forearms (I was wearing garden gloves) and became blisters and were leathery in a gash pattern. They were extremely itchy and spread up my arm. Calamine and triamcinolone acetonide cream prescribed after I went to ER helped temporarily. The rash spread to my torso and a few places on my legs as patches, with smaller blisters. A friend told me to try Zanfel, a cream that is activated with water and rubbed onto the skin to remove the Urushiol oil in poison ivy.
Avatar m tn My Primary Doc told me no makeup or lip sticks. She gave me a an ointment Triamcinolone Acetonide cream. Has not done a thing, I finally made appointment with Dermatologist. I have always worn lip sticks, balms, since my 20's (I'm 60 now). I take by injection B12 2000 MCG 1 time a month, also a prescription Vitamin D. I have had a vitamin deficiency for some time. I had a Gastric Bypass in 2003, Dr.'s blame that.
Avatar f tn I had a rash between week 2 and week 4 that took some dedicated treatment - lotions, anti-histamines, triamcinolone acetonide when the itching was really bad, a few oatmeal baths. I got a cold with a bad cough that lasted almost a month between week 4 and 8, and wondered for awhile if it was a side-effect, but sadly I seem to have given it to other members of my family (sorry!), so I guess not everything is a side-effect of treatment.
Avatar n tn Finally a NP recognized the eczema and put me on Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream 4X a day on the infected area, and he also gave me an additional morning regimen for the next 2 weeks. It's been 24 hours, and the redness is GONE, the swelling is nearly nonexistent, and the itch is minimal. Plus, I am completely moisturized. No dryness problems. I'm right before my period, and I was able to sleep through the night.
Avatar n tn One of the creams I was prescribed before, but havent really used until now, is called triamcinolone acetonide (a topical steroid cream) seems to completely alleviate the itchiness for several hours (applied 2x each day).

Avatar f tn Since all of us do have some sort of bulged disc in our cervical spine, I went to a pain managment doctor (an anesthesiologist). I requested an epidural steroid injection in between the C5 and C6. First I was sent to get an MRI of the cervical spine. Once my bulge was confirmed I got an injection. On about the 2nd day after the injection I had intense itching (this is a normal side effect for pain sufferers so I guess it's the same for itching) but then nothing for 3 weeks....
Avatar f tn For recurring itchy spot on my hand, my doctor last resort before dermatology clinic was Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream. I used it for a week and haven't had any problems with itchy recurring bump since. That's been over a month ago. After having that persistent problem for 9 months, it's a relief not to feel self conscious about it.
