INTRODUCTION OF TRIAMADERM
Triamaderm Ointment is a type of medicine known as a topical steroid. It is used to treat certain skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and rash. It helps reduce symptoms like swelling, itching, and redness.
You should always use Triamaderm Ointment exactly as your doctor has told you. It is only for use on the skin but do not use the cream or ointment on your face for more than recommended. Do not cover the area you have treated with a bandage or plaster unless your doctor tells you to. You should use this medicine regularly but do not apply large amounts or use it for longer than prescribed. It should be spread thinly. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after 2 weeks of treatment.
Triamaderm Ointment has a few potential side effects but not everyone will get them. These may include allergic skin reactions, bacterial skin infections, acne, thinning or a change in color of the skin, burning, stinging, and itching. Serious allergic reactions to this drug are rare but let your doctor know if you are bothered by side effects or they do not go away. Not all creams are likely to work for all skin conditions and may make some worse. Make sure you read the instructions that come with your medicine.
Let your doctor know about any medical issues you have, especially poor blood circulation, diabetes, and immune system problems, as well as about other medicines you are taking (particularly steroids).
