France · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 8, 2019

For Psoriasis: "My doctor injected me triamcinolone for allergies and I found out that my psoriasis was disappearing. But the injection last only 6 weeks."

Rx Triamcinolone (triamcinolone) for : "Squamous cell carcinoma On finger. I have had numerous positive squamous cell carcinoma’s biopsies and spray treatments. Dr thinks I’ve been exposed to arsenic poisoning. I can’t imagine how! This ones on little finger and bleeds and is crusty. It’s been there for years. Reddish and whitish scaly looking. Have used this ointment now for 2 weeks day and night. No improvement yet. He said after the 2 weeks to cut back to once every 3 days. I just don’t know what to do. Rather have the spot cut out. See him again in 3 months."

For Psoriasis: "Kenalog is a fantastic cream. I couldn't do without it. I also will get psoriasis inside my nose and I use Cortaid spray for 2-3 days to make it go away. I saw that Cortaid has triamcinolone in it and tried it and it worked. There is also an over-the-counter body lotion that is great...Curel Itch Defense works basically as well as Kenalog, except in extreme cases, so I save money on the Rx."

For Eczema: "I’ve been using triamcinolone for two weeks and I’m still itching. I called my dermatologist this week and they told me that it takes about four weeks to help. Why does it take so long for triamcinolone to work? I’m itching like crazy and have tried everything I can find with moisturizer but doesn’t help much. What will help? I asked the Dr to call in something called eursica and he wouldn’t prescribe it."

For Psoriasis: "This product is great with controlling my psoriasis, but I became pregnant twice last year and miscarried both times. The only thing I did exactly the same was use this cream. It isn't 100% positive that the cream is the cause but it's the only common denominator. I'm currently pregnant and have made it 6 weeks longer than the last 2 and am not using the cream! Using vitamin E oil instead of the cream and it's working out for me so far.."

Kenalog (triamcinolone) for Stomatitis: "It is best for stomatitis"

Bob January 27, 2019

For Eczema: "Been using 6 months condition worse"

Krissy · Taken for less than 1 month January 25, 2019

For Atopic Dermatitis: "I’ve had an annoying extremely itchy rash on my ankle. Wearing boots or high socks triggered a massive itch all the time. Even while sleeping, if I had my ankle on the sheet, I’d wake up severely itchy. I tried everything over the counter and a few prescribed products. My doctor prescribed me the cream and the itching went away in an instant! After four years of agony, it finally stopped itching! The rash itself hasn’t gone away yet, but at least it isn’t looking gnarly and gross from extensive itching anymore! This stuff is amazing!!!"

Pinky214 · Taken for 2 to 5 years January 7, 2019

For Dermatitis: "Triamcinolone in the Ointment formation is a MIRACLE ! EVERY winter, beginning of the season I get a couple patches of dermatitis. Always seems to be around my nose. Tried Hydrocortisone, and so many others...NOTHING...Kenolog Ointment(Generic) literally knocked it out in 2 days! EVERY time. My fiance started getting it as well when he saw the results ! I only use very little because it is on my face. But it is Incredible !"

Kenalog (triamcinolone) for Lichen Planus: "Only thing that stops itching and keeps the rash from spreading"

Shell p · Taken for 1 to 6 months December 6, 2018

For Atopic Dermatitis: "I have had atopic dermatitis since birth. During puberty it was horrible! Skin was itchy and oozed constantly. Had it on my arms, hands, wrists, and face. NOTHING I ever used (and I've used just about everything) helped. As I've gotten older it improved but in the winter months it would flare up. At a doctor's appointment for something completely different I mentioned my severely dry and itchy arms and hands. Doctor prescribed Triamcinolone ointment...WOW!!!!!! Arms and hands are soft and don't itch! Directions say to use 3 times daily but I use it every other night after a hot bath. This was a miracle medication for me!"

Aristocort R (triamcinolone) for Dermatitis: "OTC cortisone cream works better for insect bites."

Zoe · Taken for less than 1 month August 20, 2018

For Psoriasis: "I have recently been diagnosed with psoriasis and the first thing my doctor did was to prescribe this medication. It worked quickly and the horribly painful scaling I had behind my ears is completely gone."

Al · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 31, 2018

For Atopic Dermatitis: "I had been to several dermatologists all gave different diagnosis and different medications. None of them helped. I decided showing up at the Emergency room couldn't hurt, (last straw) So the Doctor prescribed me this medication. Within minutes of applying it went to work beautifully. The redness disappeared and the blemishes started clearing with in days. I had suffered for years with a skin problem so severe that I rarely left the house. Thank God for this ER Doctor who prescribed this for me."

For Eczema: "Triamcinolone did clear the eczema on my neck in about a week. However after using it for 2 weeks like my doctor prescribed, I developed perioral dermatitis (PD). I guess I was transferring it to my face inadvertently. I would've rather lived with my eczema than develop PD. If you use this, be extra careful that you don't transfer it to your face in any way. I'd ask for something weaker/non-steroidal if your eczema is mild."

Dan · Taken for less than 1 month April 22, 2018

For Atopic Dermatitis: "So I've had dermatitis for the last 10 years or so and nothing has helped at all. I've tried so many creams, gels, natural remedies, soaps, diet change, etc.... Sadly the dermatitis is only on my face which drives me nuts. I went to a new doctor a couple of weeks ago during a breakout and told her all of the above. She mentioned this gel that I wasn't sure about because I don't really want to use these heavy duty medicines on my face, but I told her I'd give it a try since I am at the end of my rope with this. In the two weeks or so that I've been using this, my redness and dry flaky skin has disappeared. I noticed a big difference after the first day. My skin has not been clear like this in a decade and I can't believe it. I'd like to incorporate other products with this so I can alternate, so that I don't build up too much of a tolerance, but this product has changed my life!"

For Eczema: "Suffering from extremely dry and itchy skin problems and eczema. This ointment has helped me tremendously."

SpiritualHitman March 23, 2018

For Atopic Dermatitis: "Been using this for years. I have no side effects"

Abs · Taken for 5 to 10 years February 24, 2018

Kenalog in Orabase (triamcinolone) for Aphthous Ulcer: "This works incredibly well on the horrible mouth ulcers I have suffered on and off with since childhood. Not using a toothpaste with SLS has greatly diminished their frequency. But when I do get them now, I apply a little paste and they’re usually within a day or two, rather than a week or two. It’s a miracle cure!!!"

Anonymous January 28, 2018

For Psoriasis: "This ointment does not work for my psoriasis at all and I have patches all over - nothing seems to be helping me, I need some help I can’t live with this for the rest of my life I’m only 18 something needs to help me! Does anyone have any suggestions?"

KristenkHdz · Taken for 1 to 6 months January 16, 2018

For Eczema: "This one works. I've had eczema all my life, and the outbreaks seem to come in clusters then calm down. I'm post-menopausal now, and I must say, they've been worse in the past two years than they have been since I was in the midst of my pubescent years. That said, this medicine works. It calls for three applications daily, but I don't have to use it that often. The spots clear up with two applications daily and in just a few days. It has helped quite a bit, and in a short amount of time."

For Eczema: "My 4 year old has been using this cream for the past 3 years because she has eczema on her elbows only (seems weird) only during the winter time and it works like a charm!! Love this medicine, highly recommended to do the job!!"

Chefro · Taken for 5 to 10 years July 22, 2017

For Eczema: "Been using this for years, I have eczema on my eye lids. Usually after day two, it's as though I never had a problem. I was told not to use it for longer than 10 consecutive days because thinning skin may occur. It clears it up quickly."

Kenalog (triamcinolone) for Psoriasis: "I have had psoriatic plaques foe nearly 17 years. The itch can sometimes be insane and as I'm sure many here would at least imagine, has caused me to take drastic actions to quell it. The only way I have explained it is that the itch is well below the skin and the thick plaques make it impossible to reach. I love getting the injections for two reasons. First as many have said it quiets outbreaks faster and more efficiently than almost anything I've ever uses. Second and I know this may sound weird but having that sharp needle press into itchy skin feels incredible. Then followed by the medicine (kenalog) saturating the itchy area. I get it every four months"

Patient CS · Taken for 2 to 5 years March 19, 2017

Kenalog (triamcinolone) for Psoriasis: "This has had more benefit controlling psoriasis on hands and feet over any biologic I've taken over the years. I've yet to find a medication with better results."
