In brief: Yes, possibly

All medications have side effects.
You don't necessarily get them all or even any. Hydrocortisone cream is a steroid - which has many potential side effects. But if you need it, you need it. Doctors always weight the benefits to the potential harm of any treatment. Steroid creams can cause thinning of skin, localized bleeding, increased risk of infection, & increased blood sugar among others.
