How to use Triamcinolone Acetonide Paste
Do not apply this medication in the eyes or on the skin. It is to be used only inside the mouth.
Dab or press (do not rub) a small amount of paste onto the area to be treated until the paste sticks and a smooth, slippery film develops. A cotton swab may be used to apply the paste. Do not attempt to spread or rub the paste in. This will only cause it to become crumbly, grainy, or gritty.
Apply to the affected area 2 to 3 times daily after meals or at bedtime as directed by your doctor or dentist.
The treated area should not be bandaged or otherwise covered or wrapped unless your doctor or dentist directs you to do so.
Mouth infections may worsen while you are using this medication. Inform the prescribing doctor or dentist if your condition persists or worsens after 7-14 days of treatment.
