Uses

Triamcinolone shares the actions of the other topical corticosteroids and is used for the relief of the inflammatory manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. The drug is also used as a paste for adjunctive treatment to provide temporary relief of symptoms associated with oral inflammatory or ulcerative lesions resulting from trauma.

For EENT and systemic uses of triamcinolone, see 52:08 and 68:04, respectively.

Dosage and Administration

Dermatologic preparations of triamcinolone acetonide are applied sparingly in thin films and are rubbed gently into the affected area 2-4 times daily. The 0.5% cream and 0.5% ointment should be used only in the treatment of dermatoses which are refractory to treatment with lower concentrations. The 0.1 and 0.5% creams are applied 2-3 times daily according to severity of the condition. When the aerosol is applied, an area about the size of the patient's hand is sprayed for about 2 seconds from a distance of about 7.5-15 cm 3 or 4 times daily. Occlusive dressings may be used for severe or resistant dermatoses.

For use in the mouth, a small amount (about 0.6 cm) of the 0.1% paste is pressed to the lesion without rubbing until a thin film develops; a larger amount may be required to cover some lesions. The paste is applied at bedtime and, if necessary, 2 or 3 times daily, preferably after meals. If substantial regeneration or repair of the oral tissues does not occur after 7 days of treatment, further investigation of the etiology of the oral lesions should be undertaken.
