Great for eczema and dermatitis

By 

from Wesley Chapel, FL

Comments about Alpharma Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream:

My dermatologist recommended that I try this product when I was suffering from eczema on my feet. My feet would itch terribly and wearing shoes was a nightmare. My feet would turn a bright red color and were very painful. I used this cream at night and put socks on. My feet felt so much better in the morning and the itching was nearly gone. Once I used this for about a week, my feet were noticeably better and much less red.
I usually have to use this at least twice a week during the winter months, and only when needed during the summer months. I would highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from eczema, it helps control the itching and relieve the pain as well.
The cream goes on very smoothly and absorbs well into the skin. I think wearing socks really helped keep the cream on my feet and gave it a chance to fully absorb into my skin. Eczema on the feet is hard to control, but this product makes it much easier to manage.

From itchy and red to normal

By 

from Spokane, WA

Comments about Alpharma Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream:

Both my son and I suffer from Exczema and I mean "suffer". His skin is so red and itchy when he breaks out all the time and they have yet ot figure out what he is allergic to, and how to make it all better. He itches all over and is miserable. He itches in his sleep, until it bleeds. Then get secondary infections in the rash.

We have needed stronger medicine before, but you can get thining of the skin with stronger steriod cremes. So we always turn to Triamcinolone.

We prefer to use the Triamcinolone since it has less side effects. He has to put it on to so much of his body that it is a good idea that we use it and rotate it with hydrocortizone. Triamcinolone is a great product and works on the redness and the itching as well as curing the exzcema. It takes care of the problem and doesn't take long to do it , by working fast it makes the rash clear quicker than over the counter medicine. You cannot get exzcema to clear with any creme over the counter like this.

Triamcinolone is our medicine of choice for Exczema.

Good for eczema, allergic reactions

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Alpharma Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream:

I recently found out that I am very allergic to Arizona mosquitoes. The hard way. Which is to say that when I got eaten up visiting a friend's house (like 15 bites on my legs and a couple of my hips and arms) I ended up in such bad, shooting pain, I had to go to the ER. For mosquito bites. 

The doctors prescribed me Vicodin for the pain, told me to keep taking Benadryl and had me fill a prescription for Triamcinolone. It definitely helped as a topical aid to keep the swelling down. 

If I had been in my right mind -- and not basically doubled over in pain -- I would have just passed on that prescription, though, because we already had a bunch for my husband's eczema. The doctors love prescribing the ointment to help clear up the rash that occurs when eczema suffers scratch. 

The only problem? Steroid creams/ointments are very heavy. They're not really meant to soak in. Which wouldn't be a problem, except that people with eczema tend to feel dirty easily/like their skin is clogged up by just about anything. Well, that's how my husband feels, anyway. I haven't polled a lot of other eczema sufferers.

So putting a heavy, thick cream or ointment on the skin is not really something my husband can stand for long periods of time. He's likened it to if a normal person put Crisco on. Yuck. So he puts it on, deals for as long as he can -- usually 60 minutes, occasionally a whole two hours -- and then runs for the shower. 

That still gives the ointment some time to work, but it just seems like maybe the drug companies should be working on something that doesn't make their target audience want to scrub with steel wool.

This is a amazing Cream It works for so many things

By 

from Quincy, CA

Comments about Alpharma Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream:

I absolutly love this cream I have been using it for so long and for so many thing. About 8 yrears ago my daughter was bitten by bugs and she little face swelled up so bad she could not see out of one eye.  The Doctor gave me **Triamcinolone 0,1% Cream to apply to the bitten areas right away.**  Right away the pain and swelling was gone .and in most cases there was  no sign of the bite the next day. And it works the same  way for all bite.  A few  years later my daughter was told she has PhitySoriaisis and the  doctor gave me a  mild steriod cream when I got home from the drug store it was the same **Triamcinolone. ** The same medication we have been using for all the bug bites.  Within days her ichy red and painful spots were almost all the way gone and now we get one or two here and there at a time and use the cream and they are gone.

N ow just in the last two weeks I had to have surgery and have a bandage I need to change every day.  But the tape that holds the banage on is litterally ripping my skin off and now I have sores all around the outside of the bandage where the tape is.  I just asked my Doctor about it and he send me to the drug store for a  perscrition for a mild steriod cream.  When I  got home I found out to my amazment that it was the exact same cream I have been using on my daughter for over 8 years. **Triamcinolone** is a awasome cream with a million  uses.  It is also good for mild burns like whar you get in the  kitchen.  I tell everyone I know about this cream and how well it works, in 4 days the reddness and sores are gone on my skin from the tape and since it is a  differant kind of cream you can put the cream on under the tape and the tape still sticks. **Triamcinolone**  Is a thick rich cream and is a little greasy but it spreads well and easy and you don't have to use much to get the job done. It is a white odorless cream.  It is a wonder cream that is great for a ichy bug bite, wind burn, scraps, abrasions Pororoasis and so much more. I highly recommend this medications

This cream is great on dry cracked itchy skin.

By 

from Brunswick, GA

Comments about Alpharma Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream:

Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream .01 is great.  My husband's skin had turned leathery then almost like bark on his legs and arms, then started cracking. His doctor showed how to use this product, combined with Urea Cream (40%) on all the rough areas and it made a world of difference within 4 weeks of twice daily use.  Expensive but very well worth it.

This stuff works great!

By 

from Dover, NH

Comments about Alpharma Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream:

**This helps my exczema a lot!  Just use as directed and you should see a big difference.  I wouldn't be without this stuff.  It is a must have for my winter dry skin also.  You do need a prescription from your doctor but if you are serious in getting some help for some really irritating skin, it's well worth the trip!**

Good for what itches you or makes your skin go nuts.

By 

from southern, NC

Comments about Alpharma Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream:

I am itching like crazy - or I was.

Someone let me borrow some Triamcinlone Acetonide. OK. I know it's not cool to borrow perscription meds, but if you had been itching this much, you would have too.

I did do the research online. This med is for redness and itching. It can also be used on mouth sores, but this jar says not to be ingested. My mouth is no issue anyway. I am rubbing this on my arms and legs and places I will not mention.

The person who was kind enough to share this had problems with poison ivy break outs. So, he keeps this on hand for that problem.

I needed it to take the edge off mosquito bites. It should not say bites. I do not get the red dots like most people. I get these hugh lumps and itch. It's bad enough that I can't even sleep. And, of course, mosquitoes love me to boot.

I am seeing the doctor tomorrow. It's actually just a check up, but the timing is good. I will talk with her about this mosquito problem.

One thing I do know is that Triamcinolone Acetonide does help on the itching. I am OK right now and ready to head to bed. With Benadryl Cream (which is a very good product), I had to get up and put on more. I hope this will last the night. I really hate to get up itching and try to find and put on itch cream when I'm half awake.
