You should not use triamcinolone acetonide while you are taking other medications that include steroids. This could lead to a potential overdose. Those who are sensitive to systemic absorption should be careful when applying any dressings, as tight wrapping can increase the rate of absorption. Avoid placing the cream in large areas or using it for extended periods of time unless specified by your doctor. Those currently undergoing chemotherapy may also be warned to avoid triamcinolone acetonide, because their absorption rate will be altered by the treatment, increasing the risk of overdose.
