Chronic rash, occurring on a daily basis. Taking prednisone, zurtech. Cure?

I am currently on prednisone for a chronic rash that has been occurring on a daily basis for about two months. High doses of Zurtech allowed me two days without symptoms, but then despite taking the same dose the rash started to occur again. The prednisone works for a short period of time, but not long enough to last till my next scheduled dose. What should I do?

Thanks for the query.

You might be suffering from urticaria.

Prednisolone can help you but at the same time it has many side effects.

Better take treatment with anti histamines.

Also try to find out what exactly is causing this rash.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
