Not simply on its own. To treat a yeast infection of the skin a combination of nystatin and triamcinolone needs to be used to produce a steroid drug. The nystatin is used to help destroy the yeast while the triamcinolone helps to ease the itching and redness of the infection. However, it is important that you understand you must not use it on a vaginal yeast infection.

The steroid medication is used by applying a thin layer to the infected area and leave it open to breathe so prevent from covering it with a bandage for example. You must apply in the intervals instructed by your doctor and refrain from using it casually because the steroid may penetrate the skin and cause further problems.

To treat a yeast infection you must not simply use triamcinolone acetonide cream because it will not clear up the problem. This specific cream is used to relieve swelling, itching and redness on the skin. These skin irritations usually come from eczema, insect bites, a rash of some kind or dermatitis. It comes in three strengths and cannot be bought over the counter as it has to be prescribed. If your doctor does prescribe you the cream you should apply to the area and rub it in gently for around two to four times a day. I reiterate that you must follow the instructions directed to you by your doctor because the amount of application may depend on how serious your skin condition is.

There are some side effects that you should be aware of such as dryness, excessive growth hair and a constant burning sensation. In addition you may contract softening of the skin, stretch marks, and large bouts of acne or prickly heat. If any of these things happen to you or your condition worsens you must see a doctor as soon as possible.

No, not only this steroid but all topical steroids are not recommended alone for the treatment of fungal infection.
