Triamcinolone poison oak

Common Questions and Answers about Triamcinolone poison oak


Avatar n tn I first got poison oak on my right leg in 1998. A few months later, a rash formed on my lips. I got poison ivy on my right ankle in Maryland in 2006. Three years later, I had an outbreak of what looked like poison ivy in a place that poison ivy couldn't have touched, on my left thigh. And it's come back again in 2014. I'm writing to say that after all this time, I think I've solved the mystery of my own recurring poison ivy rash. I get it on my lips from eating mango.
Avatar n tn i recently went to the doctor to get some cream for poison oak (it's not poison oak on my penis) and i was given some triamcinolone cream. would that be safe to put on my penis and see if it clears up the rash?
Avatar m tn Have you ever heard of long-term dermatitis developing from poison ivy, oak or summac? I would appreciate your comments on this question. My wife and I may be planning to start spending winters down South starting next fall, where I will be able to be close to salt water from the ocean and plenty of sunshine compared to the Midwest Great Lakes region. I've read that sun and salt water are excellent treatments for eczema. We previously lived in North Carolina for 8 years.
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 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 Doesn't have to be contact dermatitis to cause a blister type reaction. It looks very similar to poison oak/ivy breakouts but on a smaller scale. I've learned to just ignore it.
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.

I had systemic poison oak once and was given similar treatment as you and it subsided but while it was happening it was a nightmare and took over my life dealing with it. It was a lot like what you describe. I too was in the hospital and they gave me the IV stuff and it started to improve right away.
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.
Avatar m tn So I looked up this steroid cream to maybe give me a clue if this was fungal or what and found it treats many things like poison ivy, poison oak, allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis. So who knows but It took about 5 days to feel like I was good and I quit using it. All is good. I put a bit on about once every two weeks just to keep the heebie jeebies away though! Hope this helps someone else!
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 n tn •Foods (commonly eggs, shellfish, nuts, berries, dyes, or other additives) •Drugs (any drug can touch off an allergic reaction, although allergies to penicillin, sulfa, and aspirin are especially common) •Pollens and plants (nettles, poison ivy, poison oak, and so on) •Animal fur •Insect bites or stings •Exposure to heat, cold, or sunshine Hives are a nuisance, but are not usually dangerous.
Avatar n tn It felt like poison oak had somehow gotten in my underwear. I have been to three doctors, and tried every oc medication on the market, as well as natural medication, and what ever the doctors perscribe. I will get temporary reliefe, and think it is finally going away, and then bam! It's back. I was glad to see I was not alone with this problem. The doctors said my test all came back normal, and they are not sure what I have. I do have a thyroid problem also and take sythroid.
Avatar n tn performed a punch biopsy which will answer the true diagnosis in 10 days. He prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream 0.5%. Wishing not (at this point) to jump into the world of steroid creams, I resorted to a more homeopathic remedy, which I am delighted to say, is improving my condition dramatically. I first use a home-mixed colloidal silver/aloe vera gel to cleanse and moisten affected areas.
Avatar n tn My doctor prescribed a lotion that really helps. It's a cream combination that can be mixed together by the pharmacist - Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide. I hope that helps people. But the minute I put on a clean bra, it happens again. Has anyone found all cotton bras. I read that a lot of manufacturers blend the cotton with rubber or some kind of synthetic. I guess it's hard to find a bra without any synthetic. Let me know if you've found any purely cotton bras.
Avatar n tn I itch until I want to scream! I went to the DR. and he said it was Ecezema and prescribed me Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment and it did not work. I went to WalmART and got AVEENA Calamine & Pramoxine Anti-Itch Cream. to my relief it worked and OMG I can finally relax for a min until another breakout. I also got the AVEENA bath crystals. Which has Colloidial Oatmeal. I am relieved for these products. Soak in the bath water with this product and the welts and itchyness will be relieved.
