Question: hi
I have gotten cream that you have suggested - Triamcinolone Acetonoide 0.1%
Rush became less red and more pale. However, I still feel minor itching and noticing that my skin lightly pilling off. That is probably why it is still itching a bit. Not as much as it used to be.I also taking Zertac, based on your advise.
Please, let me know if this is they way it is supposed to be or I need to do something else. Also, how long do I have to use the cream?
Thank you

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dmitriy. Welcome back and thank you writing to us.

I have answered your previous query too..

Peeling of skin suggests that your dermatitis is resolving. I suggest you to continue with the cream for a few more days.

If it is peeling too much you may also use a moisturizer over that area, twice daily and apply the topical steroid cream over it.

Usually a week or 10 days of topical steroid use is enough for a contact dermatitis to resolve.

Also continue with tablet cetrizine.
