In brief: Several
You may have a contact allergy to a breakdown product of hydrocortisone.
There are several other topical steroids that do not cross-react. Mometasone would be one potential choice.

In brief: Pro topic, elidel (pimecrolimus)
Pro topic or Elidel (pimecrolimus) are non cortisone creams which can br used for eczema.
Barrier repair creams such as hylatopic, eletone can be used as part of regimen for treating eczema. They can be used in combination. Oral supplements that are helpful include zinc and essential fatty acids found in flaxseeds. Depending on the extent and location allergy patch testing could help.
