Aristocort R cream is a medication that contains the active ingredient triamcinolone acetonide, which is a medium- to strong-potency corticosteroid. It is used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash.

Triamcinolone acetonide in Aristocort R cream helps reduce swelling, itching, and redness that can occur in these types of skin conditions. It is a topical anti-inflammatory drug from the cortisone family (corticosteroid).

Use and Dosage

Do not cover, bandage, or wrap the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.

After applying the medication, wash your hands unless you are using this medication to treat the hands.
