Triamcinolone poison ivy

Common Questions and Answers about Triamcinolone poison ivy


Avatar n tn Hello, It does not sound like recurrent poison ivy rash without any contact with the poison ivy.It can be fungal infection,heat rash,sweat dermatitis or intertrigo. An intertrigo is an inflammation (rash) of the body folds.It most commonly occurs due to bacterial,viral or fungal infection. An intertrigo usually appears red and raw-looking, and may also itch, ooze, and be sore. Pls keep the area clean and apply some topical antiseptics.
Avatar n tn Hi, I was wondering about a possible treatment for extreme poison ivy. My husband had initially a small patch on his left forearm, that was almost a week and a half ago. Now its spread from his forearm to both arms (top and bottom), his ear, the small of his back, the back of his neck, and his feet (where he wasnt even exposed to the Poison Ivy!) Its become so itchy that he no longer sleeps well as he continually wakes up due to him scratching himself in his sleep.
Avatar f tn I have had poison ivy for almost 3 weeks. Being so widespread (both legs, stomach, back, both forearms, & left eye) I was prescribed Prednisone for 10 days. Half way thru it, my doctor weaned me off quicker due to me not reacting so well to the side effects. The REALLY terrible bubbly areas actually looked SOOO much better, so I was okay with his decision. As the days progressed, it seemed some areas stopped getting better and even look like they extend further than I started with.
Avatar n tn 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). The type of medication used depends on the location of your condition and the type of skin problem being treated.
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 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 there are no pustules or ingrown hairs, just red itchy bumps that wont go away. poison ivy and sumack have already been ruled out. i have always used protection during sexual intercourse and have only been with one person for the past 5 so im sure any std can be ruled out as well. any advice on a cure?
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 n tn It would resemble poison ivy, with small blisters that itch and swell, but goes away in a day or so. Each blister has a noticeable black dot in the middle, and after a few days the blister goes away and the skin dies where it was. This flairs up about every 3-5 months. When I went to my general doctor he thought it might be mild Eczema and prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide. What does this sound like to you?
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 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 I believe I got this problem about 2 and a half years ago from poison ivy or poison oak. Parts of the rest of my body were affected, though the symptoms were more like the typical spider-bite-like swelling. Only the backs of my hands have a problem today. I did not apply the triamcinolone acetonide cream I was prescribed after the initial problem occurred frequently or very much at all. Recently I applied the cream every day and the rash disappeared.
Avatar n tn (it seems to be moving by where i touch perhaps) It looks different in different places, Though in most placesit looks like tiny red bumps- on my finger and ears it looks like poison ivy-tiny little white bumps (i haven't touched any plants). The rash seemed to start on my ears. The weather here has changed significantly getting very hot and humid and i run outdoors so heat rash was the best i could come up with, but it just seems too coincidental to be following this other problem.
Avatar n tn Went back in and she said it looked like a yeast infection. She prescribed Nystatin and Triamcinolone. It cleared it right up. However it came back about a week and a half later. Then I was given fluconazole. Doc had me on that for 1 week. If anything it seemed like it made it worse. VERY ITCHY! Now doc is having me go see a dermatologist in 3 weeks to see exactly what it is. I'm 25 years old, married with 2 kids, healthy and have NEVER had any problems with yeast.
1462810 tn?1327364049 He said poison ivy, based on a newly appearing poison-ivy-type rash on my arms and legs and prescribed fluocinonide and Benedryl. I couldn't think of any possible exposure to poison ivy. The thickness of the hives went down, but the inflammed skin all instantly died. It continued to spread and itch. (I washed everything I had touched and scrubbed my whole body with detergent three times to ward off any spreading of the supposed urishol exposure.
1462810 tn?1327364049 Took four days to get a dermatologist appointment. He said poison ivy, based on a newly appearing poison-ivy-type rash on my arms and legs and prescribed fluocinonide and Benedryl. I couldn't think of any possible exposure to poison ivy. The thickness of the hives went down, but the inflammed skin all instantly died. It continued to spread and itch.
Avatar n tn I've had a rash for about 6 months now. It started on the back of my leg and my dr. thought it was a poison ivy/sumac rash. Needless, to say in July a bunch of little bumps appeared on my arms and legs (itchy and burning type of bumps). He then thought it was chicken pox but it turns out that it is also not that. I still have them and I've gone to a dermatologist who biopsied them and tested for lupus. He has since diagnosed me w/PMLE and has started me on UV light therapy.
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 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 also have been to an allergist and am not allergic to any common foods. The rash resembles poison ivy but I have not been in contact with it. It always starts on my forearms closer to my wrist and I will have erruptions on the front of my legs and on my chest. It is usually just a few bumps in each area but it is extremely itchy. I never have it on my head, face, neck or genital areas. Topical Cortizone has not helped nor has a week of steriod pills.
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.
5171728 tn?1364667389 I think I mentioned that others have had bad rashes, I saw the pictures some reminded me of poison ivy or chicken pox. You could also try a dermotologist. The first time I treated I could get no help from my hepatologist, he kept telling me my side effects were not related to my tx, they were.
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.
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 Hey everybody, I got the same stuff on my lips as everyone of you mentioned above. Actually, it got even worse, it spread out on bottom of my nose, and lately I got blisters on top of my hand. I went to the doctor and she said: "POISON IVY". I told her that I wasn't doing anything outdoor before the bumps pop up. She said that could take 2-3 weeks to develop. I wasn't sure that she was right, but I remembered couple weeks ago I did remove some crawling plant off of my house.
Avatar f tn she labeled it folliculitis, gave me orial 1)prednisone 20 mg tab 2 po qam x3d. 2)nystatin/triamcinolone cream TID basically to cover all the baces, she gave me rx antibiotic cream to treat what might be growing in my skin, and the prednisone, in case it is an allergic thing. telling me she dnk what it is.
