It could be used, but prednisolone is the first choice

Bullous pemphigoid is an auto-immune disease, and corticosteroids like Triamcinolone are the cornerstone of the treatment. While Triamcinolone can be used for immune-suppressive treatment, prednisolone is recommended drug in these cases, and since there are no upsides to using triamcinolone and it's more expensive, there is no reason to use it over prednisolone or prednisone, unless they're unavailable.
