What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Aristocort Ointment contains the active ingredient Triamcinolone Acetonide and is a corticosteroid used to treat various skin conditions. This ointment works by reducing inflammation, redness, and itching, typical symptoms of conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and allergies. Labeled as a medium-strength corticosteroid, Aristocort Ointment assists in symptom management, but it does not provide a cure for the root causes of the skin conditions it targets.


When using Aristocort Ointment, it's crucial to carefully follow the instructions provided by a healthcare provider. Typically, a thin layer of the ointment should be applied to the affected skin area two to four times a day.

It's important not to exceed or reduce the prescribed amount and duration of use. Before application, ensure that the skin is clean and dry, and remember to wash your hands thoroughly after each use unless treating your hands. Avoid using occlusive dressings or tight bandages unless instructed by a doctor, as they can enhance medication absorption into the body.


Triamcinolone Acetonide is the active ingredient in Aristocort Ointment.


Patients should avoid taking or using this medication if they have a known hypersensitivity to Triamcinolone or any components in the formulation.


  • Before starting treatment with Aristocort, make sure to disclose the following to your healthcare provider:
    • Any existing health conditions
    • Known allergies
    • A complete list of medications you are currently using
    • Your status regarding pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Strong topical corticosteroids can absorb through the skin and may cause symptoms like increased blood sugar and signs resembling Cushing's syndrome.
  • Using large amounts of potent steroids, especially under sealed coverings, can increase the risk of systemic absorption.
  • Regular monitoring for hormonal balance and body temperature is necessary if you use a large dose under an occlusive dressing. Treatment adjustments might be needed based on these tests.
  • Typically, stopping the steroid results in quick recovery of hormone functions and temperature control. Some may experience withdrawal symptoms requiring medical attention.
  • Children may absorb more steroids through the skin, increasing their risk for side effects.
  • Stop using the steroid and seek treatment if skin irritation or infection occurs.
  • These preparations are not intended for use in or around the eyes.

Side Effects

Aristocort Ointment often causes local reactions such as burning, itching, irritation, and dryness at the site of application. Users might also experience unusual hair growth (hypertrichosis), acne-like eruptions, lighter skin patches (hypopigmentation), and skin thinning.

Using occlusive dressings over the ointment can increase the likelihood of more intense side effects including severe skin dryness, folliculitis, dermatitis around the mouth (perioral dermatitis), allergic contact dermatitis, skin maceration, secondary infections, and stretch marks (striae). Signs of serious reactions like significant skin thinning, widespread color changes, or persistent irritation should prompt a consultation with a healthcare provider to possibly modify the treatment regimen.
