3 year old with irritation on the legs and arms. Using cortizone cream. Worried about ingestion of steroid

Hi, my daughter (3) has skin irritations that she often gets on her arms, legs and hands. Tonight she had it pretty bad on her hands so I used some Cortaid, on them, but despite my warnings to keep her hands away from her mouth I found her sucking on her thumb which may have had some of the cortizone cream on it. I had her drink some water but do I need to do anything beyond that?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Try and avoid such situation from happening again and again.

Wearing of gloves may help.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
