dear homan1977
please stop using cream like this or with similar composition for such a long duration else you might suffer from a condition called topical steroid dependant facies
continous use of topical steroid for long period will cause the skin to thin, with dryness, itching, pimples like lesions, excess hair growth , sensitivity to sun -- the list goes on

we can help you get rid of the addicton
but first please let me know - when was the last time you used this cream??
