Diabetes, had extremely high levels of blood sugar readings, using Trimovate for skin soreness at the vaginal opening. Side effect of steroidal cream?

I have been using Trimovate prescribed by my GP since Tuesday for soreness of the skin at the opening of my vagina . I have been a type 1 diabetic for the last 31 years and never had this problem before. I have had extremely high blood sugar reading yesterday morning 23.8. this morning 25.9. Which yesterday I controlled during the day by adjusting my fast acting insulin and will do so today again. Is this a side effect of using this steroid cream?

Uncontrolled high sugar leads to various bacterial and fungal infections and this is what has happened to you.
You must also use an anti fungal cream and an antibiotic cream along with this steroid cream and must control your sugar.
Your skin soreness will not go unless and until your sugar levels are brought within normal range.
