3 weeks ago my doctor put me on a prednisone dose pak and also injected prednisone into my body. A week later I developed a rash on my right side of my face and all the way down my chest. After 1 1/2 weeks, it is still there and sometimes burns like fire or itches terribly. Also hives appear. Very painful. Could this be caused from the steroids? What will help to heal this?
