The common side effects of this ointment are acne, thinning skin ,burning, itching, dryness, inflammation of hair follicles, excessive growth of hair, acne-like eruptions, diminished skin pigmentation, dermatitis around the mouth, allergic contact dermatitis, softening of the skin, secondary infections, skin atrophy, stretch marks and prickly heat.
