Hi I am here to help assist you with an answer. Desonide is not available OTC therefore the closest related anti-inflammatory OTC steroid cream is Hydrocortisone cream. The highest strength available OTC is 1%. It helps with redness, itching, inflammation, and irritation of the skin. Hopefully this fully answers your question. Once satisfied please rate my answer. Thanks.

You shouldn't use hydrocortisone on your face. It can cause thinning of the skin
