Answer

Corticosteroids

These agents have anti-inflammatory properties and cause varied metabolic effects.

Triamcinolone (Amcort, Aristocort)

Triamcinolone decreases inflammation by suppressing the migration of PMN leukocytes and reversing capillary permeability. Intralesional injections may be used for localized skin disorders.
