Aristocort Ointment Description

For those individuals dealing with the itchy, red, painful inflammation of eczema, psoriasis, or other forms of dermatitis, Aristocort Ointment may be a better option for calming flare-ups. This is a strong potency topical corticosteroid medication due to the ointment formula that promotes a better absorption of the active ingredient, Triamcinolone Acetonide. There is no cure for eczema or psoriasis, but the right medication can relieve your symptoms and you can go about your day.

Calm Down Symptoms of Itching, Redness, and Inflammation

When applied as directed, Aristocort Ointment is absorbed quickly into your skin cells and works to suppress the production of inflammatory chemicals, including prostaglandins, histamine, and bradykinin. The inflammation is reduced as well as the swelling and redness. The itchy scales may still remain but Aristocort Ointment is able to maintain moisture in your skin so the flaky scales will not be itchy. The more you scratch, the higher your risk of breaking the skin and this allows bacteria to enter.

Conditions Treated by Aristocort Ointment

The research on eczema now indicates that this skin condition is a result of an impaired barrier function that allows toxins and antigens to seep into your skin and cause an immune response so the skin becomes inflamed and swollen. As the outer layer of your skin is less able to hold in moisture due to the dysfunction of the skin barrier, your skin becomes dry and itches.

Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition that can flare-up due to a faulty immune system. For unknown reasons, your immune system begins to react to your skin cell cycle and speeds up the production of new skin cells. However, the old skin cells are unaffected and they need time to be able to shed or slough off. The raised patches of red skin form as the new cells surface and bunch up with the old cells.

Before Aristocort Ointment is Prescribed

Even though Aristocort Ointment is applied topically, you should still inform your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding to be certain of any risks. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list all OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This will help determine if your doctor feels Aristocort Ointment is right for you.

Aristocort Ointment Precautions

Long-term use of corticosteroids can cause a thinning of your skin so it should only be applied during flare-ups as instructed. The treated area should not be bandaged or covered, unless you are told otherwise to do so by your doctor, as it is a strong potency drug and can increase your risk of side effects. Keep Aristocort Ointment and other medications out of children’s reach and do not share Rx meds with anyone else.
