For 3 weeks I have been itching all over. I have been to urgent care and the e.r. and they prescribed me prednisone. it makes me extremely irritable and at first it was clearing up the rash so when I got down to taking one pill a day I stopped taking it. now the rash is back and I'm itching even worse. I have taken all kinds of allergy medicine that doesn't seem to do anything at all. I have also been using fragrance free lotions and taking oatmeal baths. I have never been allergic to anything and I'm not sure if I'm even having an allergic reaction since none of the medicine is working. Does anyone know what else it could be?View Thread
