Thanks for your query.

You can continue to use venusia cream as it is just a good skin moisturizer.
So long term use leads to soft skin.

Now as far is the other cream is concerned, 've is a topical steroid. It is used only when the condition is acute and when prescribed by a dermatologist.
You should not use it for long term on your own.

Long term usage of topical steroid creams can have various side effects.
So treat only who prescribed by a dermatologist.

Hope it helps.

Welcome to healthcare magic
Venusia cream is a moisturizer, you can use it for long term without any problems.
Elocon cream is a mid potent steroid cream and Triglow cream is a combination of retinoid, hydroquinone and steroid.
Elocon and Triglow should be used according to the advice of dermatologist. Follow his advice and follow up with him at the specified time. Do not self medicate or use it continuously without supervision.

Long term use will make skin sensitive and sunlight can make sensitive skin darker. Avoid excessive sunlight and use a sunscreen daily.

These medicines are not bad , gives results when used on the correct indications under supervision of expert.

Hope this helped
Take care
