In brief: Unlikely
Topical steroids which are applied only on the skin typically only cause adverse effects on the skin.
They are usually not absorbed enough systemically to cause other effects. I think in order to cause any systemic effects large amounts would have to applied to the whole body or at least a large percentage of the body.
