We demonstrate injection of triamcinolone acetonide (“Kenalog”) suspension directly into skin inflammation, in this case eczema. It will work for stable plaques of psoriasis. The treatment is analogous to injections of inflamed joints, but in this case into the superior portion of the epidermis, the same technique as for TB skin tests. A slightly different technique is used for inflamed cysts in acne and hidradentitis. Generally, injections on the face should be avoided if you are new to the technique and in particular, skin around the eyes.
