I used triamcinolone acetonide cream on my chest for really bad hives and now my chest has broken out VERY severely. Did the cream cause it?

No: Allergy to triamcinolone acetonide is rare so there's probably another explanation. Also this drug may not be very effective here if hives (Urticaria) is truly what you have.

Can I use triamcinolone acetonide cream for acne?

No.: It is not advisable to use triamcinolone (a steroid cream) on the face. Steroids are designed to be used as temporary anti-inflammatory agents on rashes.
