Discussions that mention triamcinolone

Skin Problems board


I've seen some infomercials for products which claim that cortisol (naturally produced by stress) causes fat to develop around the waist area instead of spread throughout the body. For example, see [url]http://www.lifenatural.com/corticel-faq.htm[/url]

I use cortisones (like triamcinolone or hydrocortisone) on a regular basis to combat eczema. Am I unknowingly dumping additional cortisol into my body and will eventually develop more of a belly than I would have normally? Should I take one of these anti-cortisol products to counteract the effects? Or is it all just a bunch of baloney? Thanks.
