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. Rashes are very difficult to describe. Can you send a photo? There are very good over the counter anthistamines that can help hives.

Can triamcinolone acetonide cream 0.1 be used for bed bug bites. I travel a lot and been home two days and I believe I have been bitten?

Topical steroids: If you have them at home, they can be used sparingly, in very small amounts rubbed in thoroughly. I prefer using pramoxine (an ingredient in Aveeno (oatmeal) itch cream or Caladryl Clear) for itching.

What is triamcinolone acetonide cream USP 0.025 used for can u put it on your check if there is a wound at want heal?

I wouldn't: Triamcinolone is a topical steroid that can have adverse effects on wound healing. I don't understand the second half of your question. Please check with your doctor that originally prescribed the triamcinolone before you use it on an area different than what it was originally indicated for.

Breastfeeding and using triamcinolone acetonide cream?

Breastfeeding and using triamcinolone acetonide cream?

Ok: Very little systemic absorption from topical steroids so little chance of passage to child through breastmilk. However this is not true if the steroid cream is applied to your nipples, then the baby can ingest it.

Can one use triamcinolone acetonide cream on a ringworm?

Can one use triamcinolone acetonide cream on a ringworm?

Helps with itching: Triamcinolone=steroid is sometime combined with antifungal cream to help with severe itching/irritation (inflammation). Steroid itself does not treat the ringworm. Lamisil, lotrimin, or tinactin (tolnaftate) are available otc and are often adequate to treat commom skin fungal/ringworm infections on skin (not beard/scalp areas). If not better in about 2 wks, consult doc for proper diagnosis/treatment. Good luck.

How do I get rid of exzema for once and for all? Triamcinolone acetonide cream helps it go away but it comes back

How do I get rid of exzema for once and for all? Triamcinolone acetonide cream helps it go away but it comes back

Difficult...: It can be difficult to completely eradicate eczema but some measures that can decrease exacerbations include avoiding triggers that you are known to be allergic to, using mild soaps and detergents, frequent moisturizing with lotion (especially after bathing), etc. Use the triamcinolone cream on the affected area once the rash occurs until the area heals. See a skin doctor if it is worsening.

Can you masturbate using triamcinolone acetonide cream as lotion?

Triamciniolone cream: This would not be a good idea as the cream can damage the skin and may be absorbed into your body and cause Cushing's. Google Cushings and look at images. Suspect you would not like to look like this.
Also if too much is absorbed and you suppress your own adrenals you may die if injured.
