A triamcinolone acetonide cream, for example, is a corticosteroid used to help treat eczema, dermatitis and rashes. The triamcinolone reduces the redness, itching and swelling caused by these skin conditions. It can be highly potent.People can use this medication on their skin, but not on their faces, groins or underarms, unless directed by their doctors. Side effects include bruising and itching. Less common, but more serious side effects include acne, skin thinning or allergies. A doctor or pharmacist should always be consulted with any questions.

Fluocinolone acetonide cream is another topical corticosteroid used by people with eczema, dermatitis and other skin conditions. There are no substitutes for these creams, and a prescription is necessary for proper care and safety. Like triamcinolone acetonide creams, flucoinconole acetonide creams provide moisturizing relief and inflammation treatment for the skin, and although these creams will relieve red, itchy symptoms, they will not cure them. In addition, the creams should only be used on patches of skin, not on large areas. The side effects of fluocinolone include bruising, discoloration, the appearance of spidery blood vessels or the thinning of skin. A doctor should be consulted if any of these side effects appear, and as there are no substitutes for these creams, a prescription is required for proper care and safety.
