Hello,

Triamcinolone acetonide is a synthetic corticosteroid used topically to treat various conditions. It is used to treat itchiness, dryness and redness. It is not used to treat specifically the fungal infection. It can calm the symptoms.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Regards,
