Can alopecia areata be treated in pregnancy with kenalog (triamcinolone) injections or should expectant mothers wait until after delivery?

I would not advise: Kenalog (triamcinolone) is a Category C agent. Animal studies show adverse fetal harm but no controlled human studies have been done. The OB will be the one to make that call.

Decided to take a kenalog-40 shot, when should I get the shot?

Decided to take a kenalog-40 shot, when should I get the shot?

Try to avoid Kenalog (triamcinolone): Kenalog (triamcinolone) is not an allergy shot, but rather a corticosteroid. As such it has significant side effects that are cumulative. The more steroid injections you get the greater the risks of permanent, possibly life threatening injections. They also do not cure symptoms rather cover them up. With multiple, effective other therapeutic options oral/injectable steroids should be reserved for severe reactions.

I think I have a dent in my butt after a kenalog (triamcinolone) injection?

Possible: A side effect of kenalog (triamcinolone) and other steroids can be atrophy or loss of tissue just below the skin where the injection was given. Steroids that are injected can also cause a loss of pigment to the skin where the injection was given. These are not common problems but they can occur.
