Answer

Corticosteroids

These agents elicit anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties.

Triamcinolone topical (Oralone, Triderm, Zytopic, Kenalog)

Triamcinolone topical is a moderate-potency steroid with anti-inflammatory properties. It treats inflammatory dermatosis that is responsive to steroids. It decreases inflammation by suppressing the migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and reversing capillary permeability.
