What is Aristocort Cream used for?

It also has vasoconstrictor actions, which means that it causes blood vessel narrowing. Triamcinolone in Aristocort Cream 0.02% works by blocking the enzyme involved in the production of a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin, which causes inflammation. Triamcinolone also blocks formation of other mediators of inflammation, like kinins and histamine release which causes itching, and also modifies the body's immune response. These actions of Aristocort Cream 0.02% reduce symptoms of inflammatory skin conditions.
