According to RxList, triamcinolone acetonide cream treats a variety of skin conditions, including dermatitis, eczema, allergies and rashes. This cream is a medium-to-strong corticosteroid that reduces swelling, itching and redness.
Triamcinolone acetonide, sold as Aristocort, Kenalog and Triderm, is also used to treat atopic and contact dermatitis, inflammation of the skin caused by disease, plaque psoriasis and psoriasis of the scalp, and anal and genital itching, according to WebMD. Because this topical medication can cause or worsen glaucoma, users must wash their hands thoroughly after applying it and avoid introducing the product to their eyes. If the cream enters the eyes, nose or mouth, flush the affected area with plenty of water.
