I had the same thing happen recently, when I was treated for Stevens-Johnson syndrome brought, a reaction to allpurinol. I was given prednisone
in very high doses, tapering off gradually, usually over three week period. Each time I tapered down to about 10 MGS, the rashes and itching began.
I want to know if the rash will remit on its own, because I've had four short rounds of prednisone
already and would prefer to stay away
from it if I can. But the itching is fierce!
