I was prescribed Triamcinolone topical cream for a small red and swollen spot on my right hand. After 3 days of use I noticed tenderness and lumpiness in my right breast. Has anyone else experienced this side effect and is it a cause for significant concern?

Breast tenderness and lumps has not been reported as a side effect of topical triamcinolone cream. There may be other causes of breast tenderness and lumps including premenstrual syndrome, normal hormonal fluctuations, breast cancer and other causes. It is a good idea to discuss this concern with your doctor and to have a breast exam to make sure something more serious is not going on.

I hate to mention this, but does breast cancer run in your family like it does mine. If it does don't be affraid to get it checked out, better to be safe than sorry.

I mentioned my breast tenderness to several doctors and none of them seemed to think it was related to using the Triamcinolone. I had a workup done, and it didn't appear to be anything serious, fortunately.

You could try Capzasin for your skin problem. It is over the counter now. It's act ingredients are Capsaicin 0.025%, Menthol 10%. My Derm. incouraged me to try it and I could feel it working. Understand, capsaicin comes from peppers and you don't want it in your mouth or on your eye's/ face. It might burn if your skin is open wounded and burn a little but not long. My skin heeled up in a couple of days. Follow all the directions on the bottle very closely.

My 6 year old daughter uses triamcinolone cream and protopic for her atopic dermatitis. It is on most of her body and she has been on it sence she was 2. She has had alot of nose bleeds and we have seen dr.'s for it and they say its just the inside of her nose being dry. If it is a medicine related effect is it still safe to use the creams and why didn't the Dr. tell us that could be the cause?

i have been taking prednisone and triamiciline,well I don't want to scare you but I was on a regimen 3 times a day for my psorasis it thins your skin way to much I can say this because I have damage I feel there has to be a better way I have also seen a medical technician in the hospital said she used it for many years and regrets it,she showed me her legs and it was horrifying little skinny legs at the bottom and major scars from all the thinning steroids eats your bones and any good doctor would not have their patients on the long term effects is not what they tell you my mother has many older 70's and 60's physicians some surgeons even and we are of tyhe oriental race all tell me these are not good for long term health issues should be used sparingly and for short use check with other doctors to find a safer way for your child scarred for life

Check with your doctor about taking her off of the triamcinolone and maybe using capzasin but BE VERY CAREFUL WITH IT & KEEP IT OFF HER FACE AND HANDS AT ALL TIMES. Let the doctor have the final say & don't be afraid to get a second opp. I have found that the younger doctors are more up to date on newer drugs and up to date on drug reactions as well.

I have been taking to her dr.s and got a second opinion. My childs health is very important to me. I am worried that some newer drugs can be just as bad. May find out given time worse. Unfortanatly I have a 1 1/2 year old girl now. She has the same problem. So far she is on over counter cortizone 10. I was told she can take triamcinolone but it did make some of her skin more thin and she was bleeding. I have not been on internet for a while so just reading this.

I take azmacort inhaler 2x daily, with Serevent and Singulair. I've had asthma since I was 1 yr old and have been on every conceivable combination of therapy available. This is the only combo that has relieved my symptoms enough to function normally. I have been in resp. arrest 3 times in the past 10 years and since I've been taking this combo I have only had 1 attack severe enough to require an ER visit. The azmacort/serevent made all the difference!!

My 8 year old son has had asthma since he was 18 months old. We've taken him to many physicians and tried pulmicort respules and advair MDI. None of which worked. How new is azmaort and has there been any studies in the pediatric popuation?

I am currently pregnant and using Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide cream and Hydrocortisone ointment 2.5%. I have been reading that there could be side affects. I was given this medication by doctor even after I told them I was pregnant.
I was assuming that this was safe cream/ointment to use.
I also take Zyrtec, Flovent inhaler and Singular for my asthma/allergies.

I use Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream 0.1%. Could not list it in my list of medications for IGuard. Are adverse reactions listed for the aerosol the same as for the cream? If not, what are the adverse reactions for the cream which I use as needed for facial skin irritations?

My daughter is 7 and she uses Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream on her irritated spots of exema. When this was perscriber to her the dermatologist told us not to use this on her face only on her body because of the steroids in the cream. She uses protopic for her face when needed. You might consider asking your doctor about it when you see them agian.

I have been prescribed with nasacord nasal spray but i'm afraid it could be addictive, the doctor told me to use it for 1 month, could it be addictive?

What types of interactions are there potentially between Wellbutrin and Nasacort??

43 – MediGuard

It is a pretty god product

30 – MediGuard

Try it, it's the best allergy nasaI have ever tried.

50 – MediGuard

Remember to rinse and gargle after you take all the puffs you are supposed to take at 1 time so you prevent thrush

61 – MediGuard

It works very well, I like to always have it on hand. Usually I use it at night after my daytime allergy med has worn off. It does not keep me up at night, like the allergy med (Claritin-D) does sometimes.

44 – MediGuard

It seems to be excellent for sinus pain and pressure

37 – MediGuard

Just hang in there, it doesn't take very long for the full effect of the Nasacort to take place.

47 – MediGuard

make sure you take as instructed

68 – MediGuard

It seems to work for me

69 – MediGuard

Yes, make sure you know the size of the tube it comes in.

54 – MediGuard

take as directed. Remove dentures, rinse mouth after inhalation

66 – MediGuard

Don't give up because it does take several days to notice a difference but it does work very well after it does

83 – MediGuard

may need additional decongestant

66 – MediGuard

It probably works differently for different people.

66 – MediGuard

Just use it consistently like the Dr. prescribes

63 – MediGuard

it works to control athsma even the suver cases.
