INTRODUCTION

PRAISCORT CREAM contains triamcinolone acetonide, which belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. It is used to treat and relieve itching and inflammatory conditions of corticosteroid-responsive skin diseases (dermatoses) such as seborrheic otitis externa (ear infection), dermatitis (skin inflammation) including allergic contact dermatitis (itchy skin rash due to allergies), winter dermatitis (a skin disease that occurs during winter), eczema (a dry, itchy, inflamed skin condition), psoriasis (a skin disorder with raised, rough, reddened areas covered with dry, fine silvery scales) and diaper rash, etc.

Before applying PRAISCORT CREAM inform your doctor if you have Cushing’s syndrome (overproduction of corticosteroid hormones), hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar levels), glucosuria (glucose in the urine), and increased pressure in the brain.

PRAISCORT CREAM should be used during pregnancy only if necessary. PRAISCORT CREAM should be used with caution by breastfeeding women, as it is not known whether it passes through breast milk.
