I was prescribed this cream b/c I had a horribly itchy rash on my legs, that would not go away. After no cause could be found, ti was determined that it was possibly a minor staph infection. This medication worked very, very well for me. Not only did it relieve the itching, but within days began to clear the condition. However, it did not work immediately, as I had hoped, so patience was needed. Further, I was told that this medicine has a tendency to 'thin' ther skin and cause spider veins, so the cream should ONLY be placed on the area that is bothersome, even if it means applying to each little bump. I was very happy with the effectiveness of this medicine.

I've been using Triamcinolone Acetonide to treat the redness of the skin on my lower legs and ankles. The cream works wonders alleviating itching, pain, the redness expanding.

I have a patch of skin on scalp about the size of my pinkie finger that I am treating with this product. So far the results have been good. I apply three to four times a day. At night I wash hair and reapply. It is critical to rub the cream in thoroughly. This takes several minutes for the scalp to absorb the cream. I will try to remember posting back again in a couple of months to report on my progress.

Medication works while being used; condition improves/clears; use is stopped. Condition comes roaring back within days. Drug doesn't seem to completely eradicate condition.

I have Stasis Dermatisis, I have been using this off and on for three years. As far as stopping the itch, it doesnt. Maybe i have to use if more often daily. I only use it twice a day, and most times once a day or not at all. You have no idea how uncomfortable the itching is. In the begginning i was taking predisone and that did a job on my skin, It did not stop the itch. It made my skin thin, so when i scratched i bled. I take coumadin also. I have been to many dermotalogists seven to be exact all over the state of Conn. No help there.

I have eczema mostly on my hands, sometimes my legs. Used to get really bad w/ cracking and bleeding. I put some of this ointment on itchy spot and it keeps it from getting real bad. Lotion never worked - often made it worse. OTC lotions did nothing. This is all that works for me!

This medication has caused the effected area on the outer palms of my hands to become scaly and encrusted to a point where I can remove dead skin resembling fish scales from the area. Once I remove the dead skin, the redness, itching, and pus filled boils return within a matter of minutes. I have been using this Triamcinolone 0.1% topical cream for the past two months without any significant results.
