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. ...Read more

This should be reserved for emergency and not as maintenance. Its effect may last for about a week.
The most important step is applying moisturizer within 3 minutes after bathing on a regular basis plus topical steroid or something like protopic. You need to consult an allergist if you have one in your area since there are many other much safer treatment options. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

My son ate some mystatin and triamcinolone acetonide cream should I be worried? I mean he seems to be fine.... But I don't know if I should take him to the emergency room or what? What should I do?
Relax: Neither of these is toxic and both come in forms we give a baby by mouth. I would take the opportunity to get the poison control centers number and keep it by the phone. I would also scan the house for other ways baby can get into materials that could be poisonous or dangerous. Babies like to explore and unfortunately, they eat things to see how they taste. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
