It may take upto 4 months.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Sorry for such a long delay in my response.
Usually we prescribed some sunscreen when going out in sun with soap also.
So you can use lactocalamine lotion which is safe and effective and economical also.
The side effect of steroids goes away in upto 4 months,sometimes take longer time also.

Brief Answer:
It may cause carcinoma but after long term uses.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
You can use it but not on regular basis means daily because with prolonged use there maybe chances of cancer also.
It may cause mild irritation and inflammation because it exfoliate the skin and sun exposure should be avoided.
Due to persistent use skin irritation may cause cancer,use only prescription which contains 2% cream not less or more than that.
So you can use it regularly for initial 2-3 months but sun exposure and skin irritation avoided.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.
