Hi docs, would hydrocortisone cream %1 stunt my growth?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Steroids and growth: Steroids used internally, in either the inhaled or oral forms, can affect growth. The degree of growth suppression depends on how high the dose is and for how long it is used. Low potency steroids such as Hydrocortisone cream, when applied topically in the usual manner, are unlikely to have much effect on growth.
