Intertrigo: The peri-rectal area is a common area for a rash known as intertrigo. This starts off as an irritation and then secondarily becomes colonized by yeast usually. Avoid using wet wipes to wipe the area. It can be treated with a combination of topical steroid and topical anti-yeast creams and often takes a few weeks to resolve. Zeasorb powder is useful to prevent recurrence. See a dermatologist.

Is triamcinolone cream non prescrption?

Is triamcinolone cream non prescrption?

Not yet: This is a strong topical steroid cream which is currently only available by prescription (except in other countries). If you need a steroid cream, start with over the counter cortizone (hydrocortisone) cream and hopefully that will do the job (and is much cheaper). Otherwise you will need to get an rx from your medical doctor.

Here are some...: Apply topical steroid (triamcinolone) cream thinly/lightly onto whole redundant part of foreskin, inside and outside, after cleansing and drying 1-2 times daily, and see if getting better in 3-5 days - of course, always making sure to pull down foreskin to prevent paraphimosis. If not getting better, circumcision may be required. To do these correctly, to http://formefirst. Com/onDealSickness. Html.

Doc perscribed triamcinolone cream 0.1% for up to one Month. Contact dermatitis all over body. Is it safe to use that much for that long?

Doc perscribed triamcinolone cream 0.1% for up to one Month. Contact dermatitis all over body. Is it safe to use that much for that long?

Possibly safe but...: If you need to cover the entire body with this cream, you may as well be put on oral prednisone. You should consult a dermatologist however to find out what is causing the problem since this may cause systemic effects, just like systemic cortisone, when used for long. Avoid using it on the face whenever possible.
