Thinning Skin and Hydrocortisone Cream? What are the risks associated with cortisone creams? The primary risk, and what most seem to be concerned about, is thinning of the skin. While that is indeed a risk of using cortisone creams, it is important to stress that this is uncommon, and a risk that develops primarily from long-term, chronic (and excessive) use of cortisone creams. Despite this fact, many people fear thinning of skin is a risk even with responsible use of such treatments, or that it will happen immediately, and that is not the case. [2,3,4]
