In brief: Be specific

I do not understand "overdose".
Sometimes there is local irritation. Allergic reactions are not seen much. What are you treating? How much cream was applied? How often? Did you accidentally brush your teeth with it? It is very safe.

In brief: Seek medical help

If you really overdosed and have symptoms you need to be monitored until side effects resolved.
If used properly once with optional repeat in one week there should be no toxicity.
