Thanks for your query
Flutivate contains steroid for topical use in very low doses. This topical steroid will not cause any harm to you even after long term use because as it is topically used it has negligible systemic absorption, thus very less systemic side effects and steroid concentration in it is very loss to have any systemic effect.
Thank you.
