Corticosteroids for use in dermatology. Triamcinolone
The active substance of the cream is triamcinolone acetonide - a glucocorticosteroid that contains fluoride; when applied topically it has anti-inflammatory, antiallergic and antipruritic effects. The pharmacological action of glucocorticosteroids is based on the regulation of the synthesis of specific proteins of the body and ensuring the body's adaptation to stressful situations by reducing glucose utilization and enhancing gluconeogenesis. They further glycogen deposition, primarily in the liver, by increasing insulin secretion under hyperglycemia. They reduce the synthesis and increase the catabolism of proteins of muscle, skin and bone tissues; facilitate lipolysis. They narrow blood vessels, reduce their permeability and swelling of tissues.
