Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
If you repeatedly keep getting scaly skin not getting resolved on hydrocortisone, then you need to get it physically examined by a dermatologist to rule out psoriasis. Or else, you can try calamine lotion which will soothe the irritated skin.
Hope this was helpful,
