Triluma cream is a prescription medication that contains a combination of medicines used to treat melasma, a common skin condition that causes dark, discolored patches on the skin, primarily on the face. It works by reducing the production of melanin, the natural skin pigment that causes darkening of the skin, and by promoting quick skin renewal. Triluma cream also helps relieve redness, swelling, and itching, especially in individuals with sensitive skin.
It is important to use this medicine as directed by your doctor and to check the label for specific instructions before use. Triluma cream should be used externally only, and hands should be washed before and after application. Avoid using more than the recommended dose and inform your doctor if you have any known allergies to this medication. Common side effects of Triluma cream include burning, irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. If these side effects persist or worsen, consult your doctor.
Triluma cream is available in cream form and contains three active ingredients: Hydroquinone, Tretinoin, and Fluocinolone acetonide. Hydroquinone is a skin lightening medicine that reduces the amount of melanin, while Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that helps in quick skin renewal. Fluocinolone acetonide is a steroid that blocks the production of certain chemical messengers responsible for making the skin red, swollen, and itchy. Triluma cream is manufactured by Galderma Laboratories and is available in various pack sizes.
