See answer : There is nothing in Hydrocortisone that is going to cause numbness. Possibly related to underlying dermatitis or your overall anxiety and perception/concerns regarding the current problem. Numbness is not an indicative sign of anything particularly serious in those areas, just a sensation. If you remain concerned and/or your condition worsens, then you should seek prompt and proper medical care.
