Generic Name: Triamcinolone Lotion (trye-am-SIN-oh-lone)
Brand Name: Kenalog

Kenalog Lotion is used for:

Reducing itching, redness, and swelling associated with many skin conditions.

Kenalog Lotion is a corticosteroid. The exact way that it acts against most causes of inflammation is not known, but it is thought to slow or stop the chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, which helps relieve discomfort.

Do NOT use Kenalog Lotion if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Kenalog Lotion

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Kenalog Lotion:

Some medical conditions may interact with Kenalog Lotion. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Kenalog Lotion. Because little, if any, of Kenalog Lotion is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low.
