Does smokeless tobacco cause rash on the body?

I have had this rash for about 3 months, Been To the Dr, as long as I m on prednisone the rash stays away. Can smokeless tobacco cause this rash? I have been dipping for about 30 years. I have never had any problems with being allergic to anything.

Hello, thank you for using Healthcaremagic. I read your query and I understand your concern. Any type of substance can couse an allergic reaction. Sometimes the allergic reaction is not immediate but may be delayed. I can't say for sure if it is tobacco or something else since allergies proves need to be done. The only way to treat it is to stop the contact you are heaving to the substance.
Hope my answer was helpful, if you have any other questions I'll be glad to help you. Best regards Dr Xhufka.
