Any bad side effects to azmacort (triamcinolone)?

Mild side effects: When used properly and in recommended dosages the side effects of Azmacort (triamcinolone) are minimal. Compared to placebo, there is a higher occurrence of sore throat. This can best be avoided by rinsing the mouth and throat after use. Oral candidiasis (yeast infection in mouth) can occur if you do not rinse mouth after each use. These side effects are mild and easily controlled.
