Is skin itching normal after using mupirocin with triamcinolone acetonide?

I have a bacterial skin infection and was using Clindamycin phosphate lotion as suggested by my doctor. The itching had stopped completely but the skin infection would come back every time i stopped using the medicine. I am using mupirocin along with triamcinolone acetonide now. This is as suggested by my doctor. I have been using it since 2 days and I feel very itchy. I have to apply triamcinolone acetone from time to time to stop this itching. Is this normal?

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The itching can be related to an allergic reaction to the medications that you are using.

I suggest using Loratadine 10 mg to prevent the itching.

If the symptoms continue, I suggest to consult your doctor about this side effect.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
