Why the dry scaly area on ankle is burnt and leaking fluid after using Triamcinolone Acetonide ?

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.

Hello,

It could be a pustule. Nothing much to worry and it will heal once the fluid is cleared.
If there are signs of infection, antibiotics have to be started.

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