Overview
Triamcinolone is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat skin inflammation and itching associated with skin conditions that respond to corticosteroids.

Triamcinolone is a medium-potency corticosteroid. It is believed that Triamcinolone works by suppressing immune system activity.

How do I take it?
Prescribing information states that Triamcinolone is applied topically to the affected area two or three times a day.

Triamcinolone comes in the form of a lotion, cream, or ointment.
