Would taking Fluticasone cause thickness under the skin?

Took a dose of Fluticasone Propionate and soon developed a thickening under my chin. How can I make this go away? I ve seen people who have taken Prednisone and their neck never looked the same again (my mom for one). I should have never listened to the doctor that a short usage wouldn t cause this.
