Hello,

You can try using a very good moisturizer for your dry patches on skin first. If it doesn't work then you can go for other options like triamcinolone.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sruthi Chelikani, General & Family Physician

I have been using Triamcinoclone Acetonide Cream USP 0.1% on my face ... as I am highly allergic to things such as smells (fragrances, dirty people, some outdoor trees, etc.) and it has been working very well. I only use it once a day 3x per week. Why on earth would my doctor take me off of using this, when it has been working great as a barrier cream .. so to speak .. where I do not turn red or swell .. people have truly noticed the difference. NOW, he has decided he wants me to use HYDRO CORTISONE CREAM .. which I think would have a harsher impact on my face and more side effects. Your input is greatly appreciated, as I am very perplexed why he would change me doing the Triamcinoclone from once three days a week ... to hydro cortisone cream. Any ideas?? Sorry .. I am on a very limited income and guess that I will just deal with a new change that bothers me ... as things have been going so well ... don t understand the need to change the medicine ... oh well. Thanks anyway!!

I was directed by a doctor to use TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE OINTMENT 0.1% on a dry scally area on my ankle and it basically burnt the area such that is leaking fluid like a burn. The doc then switched me just Vaseline but the area still weeps and is sore. I do have a call into the dr.
