Same css property getting repeated in the Inspect tab

there is one class defined only once in the theme/web/custom-variables.scss folder and the class is applied to a text box. changes are reflecting well in the browser but it getting repeated several times in the Inspect tab, Could anyone please suggest why this is happening and how to prevent this?

Do you have .dashboardfont class set on multiple elements that are nested before you define your textbox? It looks like it has multiple matches hence it showing multiple times.
