I have been using Betamethasone valerate (0.12 %) for three weeks (with occlusion) on my left and right knee to treat an allergic contact dermatitis.Now that the rash is gone, I was advised to stop applying the topical cortisone.

Or, should I wait for some time because of the increased risk of infection (I am especially worried about ringworm)?
