peeling skin & calluses on knees

My 14 mth old son has peeling skin on the fingers and toes.  He also has what feels like a heat rash on his back, stomach, & legs.  Also on his knees he has developed calluses.  This slowly started about 3 or 4 days after taking Zithromax which he has taken many times.  This has been going on for about 2 weeks and is just getting worse.  I have been bathing him in Dove and putting Aveeno lotion.  I've taken him to a Dr. and to a dermatologist and no one seems to know.  They have perscripted Prednisolone and the only thing that seems better is the palms of his hands and feet are not as red.  Does anyone have any ideas of what on earth this could be?
