I have had uncontrollable itching since I got my Covid booster. My doctor started me on this since Benadryl, Benadryl cream, Benadryl spray & hydrocortisone did not relieve the itching. This cream almost instantly took the itching away. It did not cure the itchy rash that I have but has been a god sin to relieve the itching.

Developed a severe reaction to poison ivy on my forearms. It developed into large yellow blisters, swelling, inflammation, and itching. I used ice packs for relief. The doctor prescribed the Triamcinolone Acetonide 0.1% cream applied twice daily. After three days my condition improved immensely. The blisters receded and five days later the yellowish-red skin color was returning to normal. This treatment was very effective for me.

I had an ulcer on my leg and the skin around it would itch terrible, causing me to reopen the wound. The doctor prescribed Santyl for the ulcer and the Triamcinolone Acetonide cream for the skin around it. Although I had to be extremely careful (one on only good skin, the other only on the sore) together they cleared both problems. Thank heavens now I can walk again.

After a few months of annoying chapping on my lips, I was prescribed this by a dermatologist, to be applied nightly and washed off the next morning. After about 4 days, my lips started turning blue. I discontinued using it. However, over the next few days my lips turned black and the skin-- ALL the skin-- began peeling away, until I was left with barely one layer on red/black lips that seeped blood constantly. They were so sensitive I could not eat, and even drinking through a straw was painful. I returned to the dermatologist who explained this was reaction not unusual and that I'd need to keep using it until my skin was "adjusted" to it. I, of course, declined. He did prescribe a steroidally based remedy which I applied several times daily so my lips returned to normal after another week. I regard this as a dangerous medication, however helpful it may be, that requires great care in usage. I recommend anyone, when starting out using it, to apply it sparingly for a few hours a day at first before any greater application, regardless of a doctor's usage recommendation.

I have been battling a yeast infection for almost 10 years. I used this once a day and the end of the second day the infection was completely gone. A month later and it is still gone. Amazing.

Comment from: Eczema Rash 45-54 Transgender less than 1 month Caregiver Published: February 01

I had a really bad rash around my neck and chest that was bumpy and red. Small patches were showing up on my inner elbow. The rash kept growing in about two week period which was really scary. I couldn’t sleep due to the itch, so I went to a dermatologist who prescribed .1% Cream twice a day and oral steroids Presnisone. After cream application dries and absorbs lathered up with ointment or castor oil for moisture. The itch stopped in 2 days and almost all redness went away in 3/4 days. I’m on day 10 and the rash is almost gone. My dr said this was eczema. My red rash is now brown and scaliness of the skin is gone. Cream seems to help with that as well. Very happy with the cream. Will definitely keep it and reuse for any future flare ups. I had one flare up similar to this 5 years ago, but never found out what I had. Suffered and never got relief even after multiple derm visits. Glad I found this derm who helped me.

While this topical steroid was effective while we used it on my daughter to treat her atopic dermatitis, I wish we never ever used it. Her body instantly became dependent on it and whenever we tried to stop using it, instantly her skin flared worse than her eczema ever had. She is currently going through an incredibly painful topical steroid withdrawal (TSW) process. Please do not use this steroid, it will make your skin worse than you can even imagine!

Had a body scan by a dermatologist in late June. He noticed a long time small rash in two spots on my hands. He prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide 0.5% that might take care of it, called it contact dermatitis. I started the cream the same day. Seemed to dry up the rash that I'd had over a couple of years. Then at the 3 day point of use a red itchy rash appeared on my elbow joints and upper arms, back of my hands. Cream was not put on at the rash sites at all. Tried the cream on the rash, got worse. Drug side effects sheet said allergic reaction was possible rash. Contacted the dermatologist on the following weekend. He said rash not generally possible. Prescribed stronger steroid cream. Drastically worse. Went on line to trusted homeopathic site that recommended a homeopathic treatment of common OTC health items that began to soothe it but it took about 4 days or so, it finally subsided. Then returned with vengeance more outbreaks but with the homeopathics it subsided after 5 days. It's been a month or more since the rash went away. The original rash on my hands was not affected by the homeopathics. Unknown its cause. As a speculative test, I tried the Triamcinolone Acetonide cream again. Within a couple of days the small rash points began to dry up. Then as before the 4th day, today, the multiple rash points appeared on my elbow joints and back of my hands and some on upper arms. A new place appeared on my neck both sides. I have to conclude it is my body's adverse allergic reaction to the Triamcinolone Acetonide cream. I won't be using it again for sure. Just wish there was a quicker mitigant to apply to the rash and a way to get the cream components out of my body, i. e. a detox of its components. What can a person do to hasten the healing of the allergic reaction?

A heavy petroleum based topical application is very greasy and never absorbs into the skin, therefore, after waiting and hour, it becomes necessary to wipe it off to get dressed. I'm not getting the benefit of the product and am having no improvement or resolution for the intended purpose. Also, I had ruined clothing that had color bleached splotches exactly in places I failed to completely remove the product from my skin. Product needs to be formulated in a non petroleum base, able to absorb completely, and hopefully not destroy clothing.

I’m on chemotherapy and my feet have been tender and sore around the balls and heels of my feet. It feels like crisco on my feet, no smell, doesn’t absorb very well. But seems to be taking the pain away. Just started tonight.

While this topical steroid was effective while we used it on my daughter to treat her atopic dermatitis, I wish we never ever used it. Her body instantly became dependent on it and whenever we tried to stop using it, instantly her skin flared worse than her eczema ever had. She is currently going through an incredibly painful topical steroid withdrawal (TSW) process. Please do not use this steroid, it will make your skin worse than you can even imagine!

Had a body scan by a dermatologist in late June. He noticed a long time small rash in two spots on my hands. He prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide 0.5% that might take care of it, called it contact dermatitis. I started the cream the same day. Seemed to dry up the rash that I'd had over a couple of years. Then at the 3 day point of use a red itchy rash appeared on my elbow joints and upper arms, back of my hands. Cream was not put on at the rash sites at all. Tried the cream on the rash, got worse. Drug side effects sheet said allergic reaction was possible rash. Contacted the dermatologist on the following weekend. He said rash not generally possible. Prescribed stronger steroid cream. Drastically worse. Went on line to trusted homeopathic site that recommended a homeopathic treatment of common OTC health items that began to soothe it but it took about 4 days or so, it finally subsided. Then returned with vengeance more outbreaks but with the homeopathics it subsided after 5 days. It's been a month or more since the rash went away. The original rash on my hands was not affected by the homeopathics. Unknown its cause. As a speculative test, I tried the Triamcinolone Acetonide cream again. Within a couple of days the small rash points began to dry up. Then as before the 4th day, today, the multiple rash points appeared on my elbow joints and back of my hands and some on upper arms. A new place appeared on my neck both sides. I have to conclude it is my body's adverse allergic reaction to the Triamcinolone Acetonide cream. I won't be using it again for sure. Just wish there was a quicker mitigant to apply to the rash and a way to get the cream components out of my body, i. e. a detox of its components. What can a person do to hasten the healing of the allergic reaction?

This medication works very well for me. For those here who like me have a problem using the ointment, know that you can ask your doctor to prescribe the cream form of this medication which goes on very easily and is readily absorbed. After a minute it will dry.

I have used periodically for 2 years. I apply on my neck only. Then the rash on my neck AND face will disappear in 2 days. Rash on face and neck returns within 1 to 2 weeks.

A heavy petroleum based topical application is very greasy and never absorbs into the skin, therefore, after waiting and hour, it becomes necessary to wipe it off to get dressed. I'm not getting the benefit of the product and am having no improvement or resolution for the intended purpose. Also, I had ruined clothing that had color bleached splotches exactly in places I failed to completely remove the product from my skin. Product needs to be formulated in a non petroleum base, able to absorb completely, and hopefully not destroy clothing.

I am a great looking bald man. When I was younger I got a horrible sunburn. So bad I was hospitalized. Now many years later there are patches of dry flaky skin that if you wash to hard will start bleeding. My skin is oily so I have no idea how the skin gets that dry but it does or did. After about a week of use my head is now as smooth as strippers butt. Great stuff!

I have very uncomfortable side effects, dizziness, fatigue, anxiety, restlessness. Steroids are seriously strong on your system and over time allergic reactions can take a heavy toll

I gave this ointment one star. It is helping, it's greasy and stings for a while, but here's the reason I'm writing this review, after have bouts of this skin thing, which starts as a yeast infection, semi cured with oral antifungal Diflucan, hundreds of dermatologists, doctors, you name it, I found a nutritionist who pinned the whole mess out, after a major diet change, tons of supplements, it eventually went away. That was 2014, my lost year. But alas, although I don't eat sugar, processed junk of any kind, but do love my red wine and a brief round of antibiotics for a bad tooth, it came back. I'll leave everyone who posted here and just everyone, with three words to research if you have some weird itchy burning skin thing (and exema is a generic term for "who the heck knows what it is"), you'd do well to research CANDIDA, LEAKY GUT and, by far the worse physically, CANDIDA DIE OFF. I know what I've I, and how I got it, this steroid helps with the symptoms temporarily but with a grave cost to your immune system. This horrible debilitating skin condition starts in your guts. Perhaps not everyone, but if you tried everything, gone to dozens of doctors, dermatologists, and still have no clear diagnosis......and keep in mind, maybe one in fifty medical experts know anything about candida.

Great results. It doesn't cure anything but it sure relieves the itching. I only use it every couple of days before the itching returns. Works for me.

I got this for irritation/itching/burning of my genitals. It helps the burning/itching feeling very quickly and is not irritating to the very delicate skin.
