Triamcinolone topical is employed to alleviate the symptoms of diverse skin conditions, such as psoriasis, characterized by red, scaly patches on certain body areas, and eczema, which leads to dry, itchy skin and sometimes red, scaly rashes. Classified as a corticosteroid, triamcinolone functions by activating natural substances within the skin to diminish swelling, redness, and itching.

Uses and Dosage

Only apply this medication to the skin, avoiding use on the face, groin, or underarms unless specifically instructed by your doctor.

Begin by washing and drying your hands. Clean and dry the affected area before applying a thin layer of the medication as directed by your doctor, typically 2 to 4 times daily. Avoid covering, bandaging, or wrapping the area unless directed by your doctor.

If you’re using this medication on your hands, there’s no need to wash them after application.

When applying near the eyes, take care to prevent contact, as it may worsen or cause glaucoma. Avoid getting the medication in your nose or mouth. In case of accidental contact, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water.

Use this medication solely for the prescribed condition, and do not extend its usage beyond the prescribed duration.

If your condition persists or worsens, inform your doctor.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • burning, itching, irritation, stinging, redness, or drying of the skin
  • acne
  • change in skin color
  • unwanted hair growth
  • tiny red bumps or rash around the mouth
  • small white or red bumps on the skin

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • severe rash
  • redness or swelling or other signs of skin infection in the place where you applied triamcinolone


Prior to using triamcinolone, ensure you inform your doctor or pharmacist about any allergies you have, especially if you are allergic to other corticosteroids like hydrocortisone or prednisone, or if you have any other allergies. The product may contain inactive ingredients that could lead to allergic reactions or other issues.

Before using this medication, discuss your medical history with your doctor or pharmacist, particularly if you have a history of poor blood circulation or immune system problems.

Avoid using the medication if there is an infection or sore in the area to be treated.

In rare cases, prolonged use of corticosteroid medications over large areas of skin might reduce your body’s ability to respond to physical stress. Before undergoing surgery, emergency treatment, or if you experience a severe illness or injury, inform your doctor or dentist if you have been using this medication recently or within the past few months.

While it is unlikely, using this medication for an extended period in children may temporarily slow down their growth. Regularly consult the doctor to monitor your child’s height.

During pregnancy, only use this medication if clearly needed, and discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.

It is uncertain whether this drug passes into breast milk when applied to the skin. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding if you are using this medication.
