i suggest u to better stop the prednisone syp as its elevating esr cause it is a steroid and reduces immunity and so stop it and observe only with atarax syp..if ur child is feeling gud then u can stop the medicine ..if still problem exists , consult paediatrician..
rashes usually are allergic and cause need to be avoided and should be found by u at home..wat all things are causing this rash need to be avoided for ur child at home..
so take care and avoid the allergen ..
