"Warning: Hydrocortisone does have a tendency to cause skin damage when used in the long term. It can also make the skin thinner. For this reason, it should not be used on the delicate skin of the face or genitals unless prescribed by a doctor: this is a legal condition of sale. It's worth making this clear: hydrocortisone products are not suitable for long-term use. In general, a week is long enough to be using a hydrocortisone product. This is why we do not provide quantity discounts on hydrocortisone products."
