Triamcinolone for acne

Common Questions and Answers about Triamcinolone for acne


Avatar f tn what is the best way to manage acne caused by triamcinolone acetonide application. was used for a week?
Avatar m tn I go to this weird Korean skin care place for my bacne. A few months ago, they injected triamcinolone+lidocaine into a few specific acne spots. I started itching like crazy, breathing was difficult, and they let me go home after injecting me with an antihistamine (I imagine). Rash went away after my 3 hour nap.
Avatar m tn 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. I was once given doxycycline for this, but it only made the dryness worse. I put the triamcinolone on my face once daily and my face completely cleared up in less than a week. Now, after two weeks of using the triamcinolone on my face, I am getting occasional large pimples deep under the skin that never actually form a head.
Avatar m tn However, they should not be used for acne or rosacea. Although they reduce inflammation, topical steroids can actually make acne worse. They should also only be used on the face if advised by a doctor because they cause thinning of the skin. Steroids are usually only used for a short period of time. It is not clear from your post how long ago this occured. Most acne scarring is superficial and heals within one year.
Avatar f tn My son (age 9) has acne and we were refered to an endocrinologist for tests to rule out a premature puberty (since androgens don't normally kick in until puberty). A dermatologist also prescribed him Differin (Adapalene 0.1% gel). This should not be used on children under 12, unless directed by a doctor. Eloise.
Avatar f tn I want to say 5 is when I remember? (I'm 12 now). My mom had this too, but it's gone for her, on occasion she gets a bump or two. She got rid of them with exfoliation, lots of it, but that hasn't helped too much for me. According to her I have a serious case. What it looks like is a bunch of tiny little bumps all over the outsides of both my arms, mostly my upper arms, but that could just be due to more exfoliation there.
Avatar n tn To this point all of my HIV tests have come back negative, however over the past month I have broken out with acne on my forehead and especially above my eyebrows. The acne has not responded to any over the counter acne medications. Can stress trigger acne to this extreme? I also have a separate concern which I presented in the STD forum and would really appreciate your opinion/comment. This adds to my stress resulting from the same incidence mentioned above.
Avatar n tn I apologize in advance for the novel I'm about to write! I've always had moderately problematic skin: blackheads, whiteheads, & papules,& I see a derm. In an attempt to try a different avenue, I went to an aethestician in April & I allowed her to do a "mild" chemical peel on my face (20% glycolic acid). As a result, I got contact dermititis on my neck & was prescribed Bethamethasone Valerate .1%. It cleared up the problem in 2 days, & I thought it was great.
Avatar f tn Hi. It would be unusual to have acne vulgaris on your arms. This may be Keratosis Pilaris, a genetic follicular condition manifested by the appearance of rough bumps on the skin, commonly on the upper arms or thighs. Keratosis Pilaris Rubra is characterized by red inflamed bumps in these areas. Bearing only cosmetic consequence they are seldom itchy. Exfoliation and moisturizing can improve the appearance of this condition, look for products containing alpha hydroxy acids or urea.
Avatar n tn Internal steroids can produce acne, but it doesn't seem likely that there would be enough absorption from Kenalog in the skin to do that. On the other had, I don't know what your doctor means by saying that these injections would help acne, especially severe acne. "Huge amounts of hair loss" and severe postadolescent acne need to be addressed and treated in their own right. I would ask your doctor about that, and consider getting another opinion as well. Dr.
Avatar f tn Hi, You can apply for Comedonal acne tretinoin 0.025% cream or adapalene 0.1% gel or tazarotene 0.1% gel; alpha hydroxyl acid preparation. If you are having inflammatory acne then tetracycline or doxycycline or minocycline; benzoyl peroxide 5% gel; azelaic acid 20% cream; clindamycin 1% lotion or cream; erythromycin 2% gel or cream. If you are having recalcitrant acne in women then probably oral contraceptive containing norgestimate 0.25 mg and ethinyl estradiol 0.
Avatar n tn Hi, Steroid injections have become a common treatment of problem scars. The steroid used for intralesional injection is triamcinolone. Triamcinolone injections have been the standard treatment to induce flattening, fading, and decreased symptomatology of hypertrophied scars. However, minor adverse effects of triamcinolone injections include hypopigmentation and subcutaneous atrophy.More favorable response to steroid injections is seen in the treatment of hypertrophic scars over keloids.
Avatar n tn I recently started going to a dermatologist for the treatment of a keloid scar caused by acne. I've gone twice and both times he has used laser treatment (Cynosure Long Pulse V-Star Dye Laser) and Cortisone (Triamcinolone/Kenalog) steroid injections. I've recently noticed a depression or whole in my face in the treated area (right under cheek bone).
Avatar n tn Hi I am a 20 year old female and for years now I have suffered from acne on my inner thighs (my thighs are rather large and do rub together) they are all over and everywhere, I have been too embarrassed to consult my doctor, so this is my last hope. I am so self conscious about it I have yet to lose my virginity.
Avatar m tn Products which contain AHAs or Urea will help improve its appearance. Your doctor may prescribe Retin-A (also used for acne) or Triamcinolone Acetonide, a synthetic corticosteriod, if keratotis pilaris is diagnosed. This could also be allergic contact dermatitis which is much more likely to itch than keratotis pilaris. Take an anti-histamine tablet such as Piriton (chlorphenamine maleate) which is available without prescription. Applying Hydrocortizone cream to an allergic reaction will help.
Avatar f tn It has lasted for about 10 months and I take protopic and it seems to help and Triamcinolone works but as soon as I stop using them it comes back in just a couple days. I just want a cure for this because medications help but it just keeps coming back. As you can see, it is just a group of small bumps acne like, they are not painful and they just show up almost overnight and are somewhat bright red. They seem to stay under my mouth and chin area.
Avatar f tn So for the longest time I've had these..bumps (I rarely call them pimples at this point). I started noticing them around 10 years old, especially when I went through puberty. But these bumps are occupying a tight, bundled spot between the space of my bottom lip and chin bone. They got worst recently, no puss but they got huge with tiny pimples around the group. The skin sheds off regularly, bleeds a lot. But they definitely feel like pimples until it just dries up and flakes off.
1363351 tn?1277784788 sometimes they have white heads and when i squeeze them it'll be like a pimple. i've tried acne medicine for it, but it hasn't helped. it's not really urgent, i'd just like to get rid of it.
Avatar f tn I used products for acne on my forehead and they did clear up. But nothing has worked on my arms and i've tried many things. I don't know if it's a rash caused by something i'm allergic to or maybe from the sun. Is there some kind of ointment or creme to use to clear it up??
Avatar n tn itching rash on face,chest,and back that looks like acne. i have been to dermotolgist and he said it was sensitive skin or allergic to uv rays. i have tried triamcinolone acetonide cream that the doctor prescribed and only helps alittle on itching. this has been going on for a year now. any suggestions?
Avatar n tn Five days after the encounter, I was tested by my primary physician for gonoreah, syphlis, chlamydia, hepatitis B, and HIV which all came back negative. About a month later the tip of my penis started "tingling" for various lengths of time. I went to see my primary again and she diagnosed it as fungus, and prescribed me nystatin and Triamcinolone acetonide cream which I used for a week and seemed to stop the "tingling" sensation.
Avatar m tn Its around my eyes and on my eye lids, mouth, under my nose and on the sides of my nose(kinda of inside) and on my chin. It starts with a little pimples like acne, but then it spreads out like a rash. It doesnt itch or hurt, its just very sensetive when you touch it. It started a very long time ago, more than a year.. Ive seen few doctors, they thought that it was allergies to something.. Ive used few steroid creams that they gave me, they help for few days but than it comes back again..
Avatar f tn A keloid can occur after surgery, after major skin trauma but also after very minor skin damage, such as an acne spots. It is also possible to develop a keloid even if there has been no obvious damage to the skin at all. With this kind of information it is indeed difficult to say whether you can really avoid getting those keloids. I am sure you are aware of Keloid treatment.
Avatar f tn I can live with the the rough, pigmented skin on my body, however, it is now starting on my face. The facial bumps have been present for about 5 months with no improvement. Fortunately, they are skin colored, small hard bumps. I fear they will become pigmented over time. I have not tried exfoliating creams or other treatments on my face because I have incredibly sensitive skin. Every facial product I have ever tried (make-up, sunscreen, face lotions, etc.
Avatar m tn It started on the right side then appeared on the left, and began spreading locally around the temple area for about a week. It started as small raised red bumps that were similar to normal acne, were somewhat sensitive to the touch but not itchy. After initially spreading around the temples, the rash has remained isolated on either side of my face.
Avatar n tn Hello, Keratosis pilaris 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 He seemed to think it was a type of acne and has given me minocycline. If I do have KP or chicken skin is this an effective medication? The bumps are very hard to squeeze and if they are squeezable a very small amount of white stuff comes out. which resembles a fine string. Any ideas? Diagnosis?
Avatar f tn Try using Neosporin or polysporin with your triamcinolone cream. Triamcinolone caused red marks on my face and a bit dryness and white patches appeared. I started mixing Neosporin and triamcinolone cream together and noticed the redness going away. Polysporin also helped me also. I discovered my skin is too sensitive to use triamcinolone cream by itself.
Avatar n tn I would like to know what is going on forever I have always had redness on my chin. but now for the past year I have had off and on red dryskin on my face. the sides of my nose skin cracking and red as well as the bridge of my nose eyebrows and chin. this comes and goes I do not use makeup or facial products. never had acne. and I would like to fix the problem. what is it what treatment is there.
Avatar m tn Hello, From the symptoms it can be due to contact dermatitis or pompholyx. It is characterized by a sudden onset of many deep-seated pruritic, clear vesicles which itch and then peel off. As a result the skin may also fissure. It is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites.
