It’s used to treat atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, eczematous dermatitis, neurodermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, insect bites, lichen simplex chronicus, exfoliative dermatitis, stasis dermatitis, nummular eczema, psoriasis, and pruritus ani and vulvae.


In a suitable base, Triamcinolone Acetonide (a Triamcinolone derivative). Topical steroids are used for their anti-inflammatory, anti-pruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties.

Dosage and Administration

A small amount of Triamcinolone is gently rubbed on the affected area 1-2 times daily. Some cases of eczematoid psoriasis may be treated more effectively by the application of Triamcinolone under an occlusive dressing.

Occlusive dressing technique: Gently rub a small amount of Triamcinolone on the lesion until it disappears. Then reapply, leaving a thin coating, and cover with a pliable non-porous film. For convenience apply Triamcinolone intermittently (12-hour occlusion during the night) followed by reapplication without occlusion, during the day.

Pediatric use: Triamcinolone should not be used in children under 8 years. Administration of topical corticosteroids to children should be limited to the least amount compatible with an effective therapeutic regimen. Chronic corticosteroid therapy may interfere with the growth and development of children. As children are more likely to get side effects, they should not normally be treated for longer than 5 days.


Patients having a history of hypersensitivity to any of the preparation’s components should avoid using triamcinolone acetonide. It’s also not recommended for skin TB, fungus infections, and viral skin disorders (Herpes simplex, chickenpox, and vaccinia), as well as perioral dermatitis, rosacea, and ulcerative conditions.

Side Effects

Burning, itching, irritation, dryness, folliculitis, hypertrichosis, acneiform eruptions, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, and allergic contact dermatitis, maceration of the skin, secondary infection, skin atrophy, striae, and miliaria have all been reported with topical corticosteroids, either with or without occlusive dressings.

Pregnancy & Lactation

There have been no appropriate and well-controlled investigations on the teratogenic consequences of topically administered corticosteroids in pregnant women. As a result, only if the potential benefit outweighs the danger to the fetus should topical corticosteroids be administered during pregnancy. It’s unclear if topical corticosteroid therapy would result in enough systemic absorption to produce measurable amounts in breast milk. Corticosteroids that are taken systemically are secreted in breast milk in amounts that are unlikely to harm the newborn. When topical corticosteroids are given to a nursing mother, however, caution should be maintained.

Precautions & Warnings

Triamcinolone Acetonide should be stopped if any reactions or peculiarities occur. Topical steroids should be used with caution and close observation of affected regions, keeping in mind the risk of infection spread from anti-inflammatory drugs and the possibility of terminating steroid therapy and/or commencing antibacterial therapies.

Triamcinolone Acetonide should not be applied to healthy skin or wide regions of skin, and it should not be used in the eyes because it can cause glaucoma and cataracts. Atrophic striae are more likely to appear when steroids are used for long periods of time (greater than 4 weeks). The use of flexures and intertriginous zones for an extended period of time is not recommended. Topical corticosteroids are absorbed in a higher rate in children, making them more susceptible to systemic harm. Long-term continuous topical steroid medication in babies should be avoided. Even without blockage, adrenal suppression can develop.

Triamcinolone Acetonide should not be applied to healthy skin or wide regions of skin, and it should not be used in the eyes because it can cause glaucoma and cataracts.
