YES: Diprosone (betamethasone dipropionate) is a topical steroid and can lead to chronic and sometimes permanent side effects on the skin like thinning, scarring and increasing or decreasing pigmentation (hyper pigmentation and hypopigmentation). These side effects can be avoided by using the cream sparingly and with frequent breaks.
