Go to an eye dr!: Triamcinolone is not one of the best or safest drugs to use around your eyes. There are special eye ointments/creams containing steroids that only an eye doctor can prescribe accurately, because any steroids that get in the eye can increase your intraocular eye pressure. Plus, when swollen lids deflate, they appear wrinkled. So, have an expert eye doctor check this out.
