Triamcinolone is a prescription drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat skin inflammation and itching associated with skin conditions that respond to corticosteroids.

Triamcinolone is a medium-potency corticosteroid. It is believed that triamcinolone works by suppressing immune system activity.

How do I take it?
Prescribing information states that triamcinolone is applied topically to the affected area two or three times a day.

Triamcinolone comes in the form of a lotion, cream, or ointment.

Side effects
The FDA-approved label for triamcinolone lists common side effects including burning, itching, redness, irritation, dryness, papular (raised) rashes, skin atrophy (thinning, wrinkling, or visible depressions on skin), allergic contact dermatitis, secondary infection, stretch marks, and thickening of the skin.

Rare but serious side effects for corticosteroids include glaucoma, high blood sugar, and reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression (a dysfunction of the adrenal system).
