Medication for dark spots on the legs

hello doctor i have marks on my legs since last 4 to 5 years because of scratching . They are dark spots clearly visible, my doctor suggested me to use halotop to get rid of those marks and to my surprise it is working great..infact i can see difference every week. But i researched on internet and i found that it is a steroid so should i stop using it permanently or use it sometimes because it is very effective.

If your marks are fading you can use halotop until the marks on your leg disappear then you can use it on alternate days and slowly increase the duration between use.Steroids should not be stopped can slowly stop halotop and use it if the lesions reappear
