Aristocort is a topical medication that acts as a corticosteroid. Triamcinolone Acetonide is the main ingredient in Aristocort.
Aristocort is prescribed to individuals suffering from a variety of dermatological conditions. These skin problems include rashes, skin allergies, dermatitis, and eczema. The indicators typically associated with these ailments are swelling, itching, and inflammation of the skin.
Aristocort contains a corticosteroid. This product is used to reduce inflammation and inflammatory reactions caused by the immune system. Inflammation is usually caused due to the presence of foreign bodies in the body. The immune system reacts, causing irritation of the skin to occur. Corticosteroids inhibit these reactions in two different ways. These steroids suppress certain activities of the immune system ensuring that no further irritation appears on the body. It also causes the blood vessels in the skin to contract. This too, reduces the appearance of the rash and soreness.
Aristocort should be used in an amount that has been suggested by a healthcare attendant. You should refrain from using Aristocort in amounts that are smaller or larger than the suggested dosage.
