Brief Answer: Stop using triglow cream Detailed Answer: Hello dear, Welcome to healthcaremagic. I have read your query and understood your concern. Triglow is a combination cream containing flucinolone acetonide as one of the component, which is a steroid. These steroidal preparations are not advisable to use for long time as these creams initially show good effects in the form of fairy and smooth skin. But later, if used for prolonged period, may harm the skin in the form of redness, itchy red colored lesions, excess hair growth etc. And to make it worse, the skin becomes addicted to these preparations. Additionally application of these creams around lips is usually not advised around lips because the side effects around lips are more common. So, i will highly strongly recommend you to stop using triglow further. You may use creams containing safer drugs like combination of kojic acid and vitamin C instead of triglow cream for maintenance therapy. I hope i am able to solve your query. If you have further query, you may ask me . It will be my pleasure to help you further. Stay healthy.
