Prednisone for rash NOT working!!

I went to minute clinic 9 days ago and was diagnosed with contact dermatitis (or poison ivy). I was prescribed prednisone and am on my last day of taking it. However, the rash has spread all throughout my body (to my breasts, private parts, etc). The burning has gone away, but the itchiness is driving me crazy. What can I do to get rid of this rash? (Why isn't the prednisone working??)

Hi drdegges,

I just finished reading your comments. Perhaps it's time to make an appointment with your family doctor. You ask how to get rid of this
rash. This sounds rather concerning considering the rash has spread
to various body parts. You need professional help. Maybe even a referral
to a dermatologist. I won't fool around and waste time by trying to cure
this yourself. You could make it worse. If this were happening to me,
I'd make a doctor's appointment asap. Good luck in finding out what
is causing the rash. Eve :)
