What can be the reason for itchy rash through out the body?

I have very itchy rash all over my body. I did 2 treatment of permethrin, prednisone 60mg for 3days, and Benadryl. My rashes and itches has stopped. I removed bed lines and wash with hot. But when prednisone has stopped my rashes and itchiness came back. What do I need to do now.

Hi,

The symptoms can be related to an allergic reaction. This is confirmed by the fact that the symptoms has stopped after the use of Prednisone.

For the itching I suggest to continue Benadryl and use Calamine lotion for local relief.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
