In brief: Yes

Desonide is a mild topical steroid often used for steroid-responsive skin diseases in more sensitive skin areas like the face.
It should be used intermittently with breaks to avoid any side effects like skin color changes (light and dark), skin thinning, stretch marks, and scarring. As long as you are using it properly, you are not likely to have problems or side effects.
