Hi,
Triamcinolone (trade name Kenalog) is a synthetic corticosteroid that can be injected into the subcutaneous area, as it may help  alleviate stubborn swelling and decrease the presence of scar tissue.

This drug is commonly used by Dermatologists by injection into Infected and swollen Sebaceous Cysts and scar adhesions. As with all steroid medications it comes with side effects, the most notable being being redness or pain at the injection site.
The other common ones being headache, menstrual period changes and/or post-menopausal bleeding, easy bruising and/or bleeding, swelling of the ankles/feet, persistent weight gain, puffy face, unusual hair growth and thinning of the skin etc.

These side effects will disappear when the medication is stopped in most cases. However, this may not always be true in long-standing cases when some of the side effects cannot be reversed.
It depends on an individual's predisposition as well as other factors associated with the medication.
