I understand the above work (and in my experience the one I use which is Elocon works well) by supressing immune function to inhibit DH when it flares up. Does this mean over time it can reduce white blood cell count? Mine has gone down since I started using it on a sporadic basis 2.5 years ago. Cheers.

First paragraph appeared to confirm my suspicion:

i.e. steroids (and the assumption I am making is that this include topical steroids) can reduce white blood cell numbers.
