I've used fluocinonide 0.05 for years. Now my HMO allowed triamcinolone acetonide. I have constant itchy skin eruptions, scalp itch and brittle hair with hair loss. Is triamcinolone going to address these issues?
Is triamcinolone acetonide an anti-fungal?

No, triamcinolone is not an antifungal. It is a corticosteroid and similar to fluocinonide. It depends on your diagnosis as to whether the triamcinolone will help. See a dermatologist if your hair loss persists to evaluate the cause (particularly to rule out scarring alopecia as a cause).
