If you use too much hydrocortisone (Anusol-HC, Cortaid, Cortizone and others) on large areas of the skin long-term, particularly if you cover the treated area with tight bandages or dressings, serious side effects can occur. Call your doctor right away if you experience any of the following:
  • thinning skin
  • easy bruising
  • changes in body fat (shape or location)
  • increased acne or facial hair
  • menstrual problems
  • impotence or loss of sexual interest
