How long does it take Triamcinolone to start working?

I have this crazy rash thing on my legs, started a couple weeks ago with a small patch and has gradually spread. It is blotchy and itchy and generally unpleasant. I finally went to the doctor on Friday morning and was diagnosed with eczema and prescribed Triamcinolone, 2x a day for up to 2 weeks. How long should it take to start helping? Because my blotches are still spreading! [more inside]

What's up with my skin?

I've had a mysterious rash for the past 8 months, starting 2 weeks after my first child was born. Two different dermatologists say probably eczema, and I probably just have to live with it. Should I give up and live with it, or try to do something else? [more inside]

Andropause or hypochondria?

I am about to turn 40, and the last couple years have not been great for me physically, so if this is middle-age, then I don't want it. In my case, the problem is dry skin, which has plagued me more or less all my life, but looking back, it seems like in former decades it was a relatively minor annoyance compared to the scourge it has become. Sometimes I go into an itching frenzy. Not good at night when I'm trying to sleep or when out in public. [more inside]

baby straight jackets?

Our itchy baby can only sleep if we swaddle her securely. By securely, I mean we have to wrap her quite snuggly, safety-pinning the stretchy cloth to prevent her from wriggling out and scratching herself awake. It took some trial-and-error to find a wrapping method that could contain her. Can snug swaddling harm babies orthopedically? [more inside]
