I may have swallowed a trace amount of lotrisone cream (left on my finger after application.) Should I be concerned?

In brief: You'll be ok

Do not be alarmed, a small amount will not harm you in anyway whatsoever. For the next few hours be sure to drink plenty of water to wash out the unpleasant flavor from your lips and mouth.
As a reminder, be sure to wash your hands after application of topical medications to avoid this problem in the future. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
