Triamcinolone acetonide is a white to off-white powder widely used for skin conditions.
It is practically insoluble in water and sparingly soluble in ethanol and m. It is soluble in acetone and slightly soluble in chloroform.
It is one of the medium-acting synthesized glucocorticoids. As one of the more potent triamcinolone derivatives, it is about 6~8 times as potent as prednisone, 5 times as hydrocortisone.
What Can Triamcinolone Acetonide Be Used For ?
Triamcinolone acetonide is an adrenal cortex hormone pharmceutical ingredient, which acts on glucose metabolism and can reduce the pathological response of antibody tissues to damaging stimuli. It is used for active rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis.
Triamcinolone acetonide is an intermediate-acting glucocorticoid, which has anti-inflammatory, anti-itching, and vasoconstriction effects. The water and sodium retention effect is weak, and the anti-inflammatory effect is strong and lasting. For dermatitis and other skin diseases, it can be absorbed by the skin topically.
It can be used but not limited to the conditions below:
1. Dermatitis and eczema accompanied by fungal infection or tendency to fungal infection;
2. Inflammatory dermatophytes caused by dermatophytes, yeasts, and molds, such as tinea hands and feet, tinea corporis, tinea cruris, and tinea versicolor;
3. diaper dermatitis;
4. paronychia and other diseases.
Due to the large scope of application of triamcinolone acetonide and econazole cream, the usage and dosage for treatment of different diseases are different: when treating dermatitis and eczema, the course of treatment is 2-4 weeks; the treatment of inflammatory fungal diseases should continue until the inflammatory reaction subsides, and the course of treatment is not More than 4 weeks. Use on thin skin areas such as face, underarms, groin, and vulva for no more than 2 weeks. If symptoms do not relieve, please consult your doctor.
In addition, people with skin tuberculosis, syphilis, or herpes, or varicella virus infection should not use triamcinolone acetonide.
During medication, avoid contact with eyes and other mucous membranes. If there is burning, redness, and swelling at the medication site, stop the medication immediately, try to wash the site with clean water and go to a hospital right after.
How Is Triamcinolone Acetonide Classified As a Glucocorticoid?
According to the biologically acting period, we divide glucocorticoids into 3 categories: short-acting, medium-acting, and long-acting hormones. Short-acting hormones are also called natural hormones, which are synthesized and secreted by our adrenal glands, while medium- and long-acting hormones are synthesized artificially.
1. Short-acting glucocorticoids: cortisone, hydrocortisone.
Features: Those are natural-existing hormones with weak anti-inflammatory effects, short-action period, and less harm to the HPA axis. They are not suitable for the treatment of chronic autoimmune diseases and we mainly use them for the replacement therapy of adrenal insufficiency.
2. Medium-acting glucocorticoids: prednisone, prednisolone, methylprednisolone, triamcinolone acetonide.
The anti-inflammatory effect and half-life of those steroids are in the middle, between short-acting and long-acting. So the side effects are less than the long-term Glucocorticoids. Those are the most widely-used glucocorticoids in clinical practice. It is mainly used for the treatment of rheumatism, autoimmune diseases, and immune transplantation.
3. Long-acting glucocorticoids: dexamethasone, betamethasone, and other methasone.
Features: they have strong anti-inflammatory effects, with long-acting period, anti-allergic and healing effects. However, they will significantly inhibit HPA axis. They are not recommended for long-term use but only should be used as a temporary med.
#1. Conversion of equivalent dose
Cortisone 25 mg = hydrocortisone 20 mg = prednisone 5 mg = prednisolone 5 mg = methylprednisolone 4 mg = triamcinolone acetonide 4 mg = betamethasone 0.75 mg = dexamethasone 0.75 mg
#2. Comparison of tissue penetration ability
The ability to penetrate the blood-brain barriers in order: methylprednisolone>dexamethasone>hydrocortisone
The ability to penetrate the placental barrier in order: dexamethasone>methylprednisolone>prednisone
