Table of contents:

Aristocort R cream is a topical medication used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash. It contains the active ingredient triamcinolone acetonide, which is a topical corticosteroid. The cream works by reducing swelling, itching, and redness associated with skin inflammation.

Aristocort R cream is available in a concentration of 0.1% and should be applied topically to the affected area as directed by a healthcare professional. Use Aristocort R cream as prescribed, and to avoid applying it to sensitive areas such as the face or near the eyes.

Use and Dosage

Apply Aristocort R Cream only to the affected area of the skin. Do not apply it to the face, groin, or underarms unless your doctor has advised you to do so. Before using the cream, wash and dry your hands and clean the affected area. Apply a thin layer of the cream to the affected area and gently rub it in, as directed by your doctor. Use it 2 to 4 times per day, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Do not cover, bandage, or wrap the area, unless your doctor has advised you to do so.

After applying the cream, be sure to wash your hands unless you have been instructed to use it on your hands. Take care to avoid getting the cream in your eyes, nose, or mouth, as this may worsen or cause eyesight problems. If this does happen, rinse the affected area immediately with plenty of water.

Use Aristocort R Cream only as directed by your doctor. Do not use it longer than prescribed. Use exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
