Can triamcinolone acetonide B be used to treat severe diaper rash on a little girl?
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on April 10, 2023.
The cream contains nystatin which is used for women's yeast infections and also contains the steroid triamcinolone, which treats inflammation and swelling. Would this be OK to use? Obviously, I don't want to make it any worse. The little girl is 12 months old.
No, do not use the steroid cream on your babies diaper rash. Triamcinolone is a potent steroid and should not used on a 1 year old child unless recommended by a doctor.
Your pharmacist will be able to recommend a safer mild corticosteroid / anti-fungal cream.
