Triamcinolone cream over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Triamcinolone cream over the counter


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 n tn In severe cases of jock itch, or doesn't respond to over-the-counter medicine, you may need a prescription-strength topical or oral medication. These include topical antifungals like econazole (Spectazole) or oxiconazole (Oxistat) and oral antifungals like Itraconazole (Sporanox),Fluconazole (Diflucan) or Terbinafine (Lamisil) Triamcolone acetonide is a more potent type of triamcinolone, being about 8 times as effective as prednisone.
Avatar f tn i have been told i should use benedryl, hydrocortisone cream 1% over the counter(haven't yet), got word of gold bond on this site, smells menthol which i don't like but it works pretty much immediately, had to use it last night in fact.. couldn't sleep last night, tried on own til 2am, then took restoril, now still grogy early am. i am waiting for the more nasty sides, the rash on face or other body parts that lingers, actually hope i don't get it.
Avatar m tn Major redness then showed up. Luckily I read up about the cream. The realisation of what I'd done nearly tilled me over the edge. At the same time my Mrs left me. So here I as with mega thin skin and red spots. And a red area at the Base of the glans. Also pink foreskin that was thinking and would stick to the glans. All because I listened to a crazy woman and wanted to keep her. Truth is. There was no problem.
Avatar n tn did all the over the counter anti itch creams, didn't help. I started using the Elidel cream a couple of weeks ago. So far, this is really helping and my itch isn't as bad and seems as though my skin is having an extra minute to heal and stay quiet now. I've even had a couple of days in a row that I didn't itch, itch and itch. My GI also prescribed a pill called hydroxyzine HCL 25mg (generic for Atarax). Maybe its the pill, maybe its the Elidel; or combination of both.
1102290 tn?1278503553 In addition, I would try to get an oral prescription antihistamine. Some people use over the counter Benadryl and over the counter steroid cream but they did nothing for me and my rash, just were not strong enough. Over the counter steroids creams and over the counter antihistamines were useless for me, totally useless. They did nothing. My treatment team was useless and dragged their feet doing nothing until the rash was really pretty bad and I demanded they do something.
Avatar f tn Since I have to treat 48 weeks I have been counting down the days until the Incivek is over and hoping that things will get a little easier once this part is over. Thanks!
Avatar n tn some are a little red, skin colored, white tip, making my skin rough to the touch, i have tried over the counter treatments and they just dry my skin out sometimes making it worse. Can anyone help me? what is this called? and how can i treat this??
Avatar f tn Application of mild steroid cream like dermacort also helps. For the itching please take some over the counter antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin. In case the symptoms persist then antifungals may be needed. A dermatologist should be consulted in that case. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn Prednisone, Medron, Zyrtech, Benedryl, Steroidal cream, over-the-counter anti itch creams, lotions, and gels,Doxepin, etc... Recently I have had numerous blood tests done and am waiting on the results. This is NOT eczema or psoriasis. As I am already on thyroid medication, I know that is not the cause. Recently, I met a 13 year old girl who has the same type of rash and was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease. If you have any further information, please post it.
Avatar m tn Others include skin thinning and atrophy, allergic reaction and tachyphylaxis(tolerance the skin develops to the vasoconstrictive action of topical steroids.). Steroids are not available over the counter and should be taken after a dermatologist’s prescription only. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
2094297 tn?1345392693 I've tried a lot of things, both script and over the counter. Finally made an appt with a dermatologist for next week. This was my 4th time treating and I never had anything like this before.
Avatar n tn It's bound to be tough, but you can do it. And your doctor can help. Try an over-the-counter or prescription cream. Over-the-counter hydrocortisone creams or prescription steroid creams can help ease itching and inflammation. Soaps or lotions containing coal tar may be helpful, too. Try other types of medication. Sometimes antihistamines help stop itching. In other cases, steroids may be injected directly into the affected area to reduce itching.
Avatar f tn He may need some prescription meds like fluocinonide ointment and hydroxyzine tablets. They work much better than the over the counter stuff (the over the counter stuff did not even phase my rash or the itching). Here are a couple of site with photos of Incivek rash and Riba rash:
Avatar m tn The doctor said it was probably caused by the antibiotics given before the surgery, and he prescribed Nystatin-Triamcinolone cream (Mycolog II). Now, 3 months later and after applying 2 tubes of the cream over this time period, the fungus has reappeared in full force. It looks like a large patch of red and yellow blotches. Is there another medication preferable to the Nystatin?
Avatar n tn I have redness and pain, though not balantitis. Do not overuse over counter or pres cream, heard can thin skin, so use caution do not use for many days.
Avatar m tn For the itching please take some over the counter antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin. In case the symptoms persist then antifungals may be needed. 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. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
363110 tn?1340924019 I have extremely itchy bubble-like blisters predominantly on one index finger, but it does appear on other finger & both palms. I also have what appears to be a different type of splotchy rash on my abdomen, forehead, chest, on the side of my left eye & on both ears. At one time I had a rash on my eyelids but this has cleared up. This has been going on for weeks, with varying levels of severity and it seems one area will heal & something new will pop up.
Avatar m tn The dermatologist took skin samples to test for various possible diagnoses, but all the tests came back inconclusive. I was prescribed the topical steroid cream triamcinolone acetonide by the dermatologist. After the early visits using the topical cream and antibiotics the bumps of the rash came down to be flush with the level of my skin, however they have remained as red circles with very little change in appearance or number.
Avatar n tn It burns and itches and I have had it for two weeks. I have tried over the counter creams and corn starch. The area is raw in some places. I have not had intercourse in over a year. The only thing that I found at home to work was and old perscription for triamcinolone acetonide cream.
4494421 tn?1355438826 I used an over the counter cream " Triamcinolone Acetonide " and it worked great for me. Other then that maybe others will chime in here but you can also check in the search box.
Avatar f tn Hello, One possibility for such type of bumps can be keratosis pilaris. It occurs when the human body produces excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin. There is currently no known cure for keratosis pilaris, however, there are effective treatments available which make its symptoms less apparent. Treatment includes tretinoin or Triamcinolone cream or Adapalene, a retinoid medication.
Avatar n tn I went through the same thing every prescription you can imagine even all the over the counter stuff I suffered for months, my eczema was bad my pits, my back my neck, stomach, between my thighs I was covered then my obg prescribed me triamcinolone acetonide ointment 0.5% and it has worked miracles I used it for a week and it cleared everything, maybe it will do the same for you.
883151 tn?1245518109 Well the doctor called with the results from Aries tests. I knew there would be nothing with the rash on his arms. I already knew it was an allergic reaction from laying in the grass. He's had eczema since he was a baby. Anything he touches, he gets a rash from. The dry scalp is something different. He's had a dry scalp and dandruf for a long time. Then he started with this patch that won't grow, actually now it's two patches that won't grow.
Avatar m tn I am considering switching to an over the counter anti fungal cream because I've read that the steroid cream may be too strong for regular use and may in fact keep my skin irritated instead of getting rid of the irritation. I am possibly going to see the doctor again tomorrow, but I would appreciate a second opinion. I have read horror stories of people having this problem for many months and I am very concerned this could happen to me.
Avatar f tn I have also tried over the counter drops for swimmers ear, and they did next to nothing. The only relief I have ever had was with the steroid drops the doctor prescribed when it got infected, and that was wonderful, but whenever I go off the drops the itchiness comes back within a week or two. Does anyone with this condition have any ways of relieving the itchiness on a regular basis? Or is the doctor right that there is nothing I can do about it?
Avatar m tn I've looked it up and it does say that this drug causes FDE, but so does other over the counter drugs such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. I went to the doctor and he said it is irritated and gave me Triamcinolone Acetonide Topical. Its a steroid and antifungal cream. Hasnt been so effective though. I also used Aldara on the same spot but that was over 2 months ago. The current symptoms have been present for almost 2 weeks now.
Avatar m tn The dermatologists have said they have no idea what to do next. We have tried EVERY over the counter medication, special baths, laundry detergents to no change. I welcome ANY suggestions...
Avatar n tn Most cases of pityriasis versicolor respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and Nizoral. Regarding keratosis pilaris,it occurs when the human body produces excess keratin, a natural protein in the skin.
Avatar n tn My dermatologist also prescribed a steroid cream but I'm reluctant to use a steroid cream on my eye. ONyx 600- What is the name of the eye drops that helped the blepharitis? I'm want to try that next.
