Thanks for query,
You have not mentioned for what disease and who has prescribed this cream.
If it is a must then discuss with your doctor and think of alternative of this cream.
I think local application of steroid has not much side effects
Along with this cream you can use some moisturizing lotion.
Take vit,A,D and E tab orally.
Do not do self medication.
Ok and bye.
