Toricinolon cream 0.1% for skin diseases (corticosteroid, triamcinolone acetonide, Kenalog)
What is Toricinolon cream 0.1% for skin diseases (corticosteroid, triamcinolone acetonide, Kenalog)?
Toricinolon cream is formulated with triamcinolone acetonide, which is a synthetic corticosteroid. This compound functions as an agonist for the glucocorticoid receptor, initiating specific gene expressions that bring about anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects. In terms of potency, triamcinolone acetonide is estimated to be approximately five times more powerful than cortisol.
Toricinolon cream proves its efficacy in addressing various skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, dermal pruritus, prurigo, insect bites, psoriasis, as well as burns and frostbites. Notably, research highlights its effectiveness in treating atopic dermatitis in children; however, close supervision by the attending pediatrician is required.
