The prednisone is notorious for its ballooning properties. The only thing I can think of that may be causing your symptoms is a type of psoriasis. It's very irritating and difficult to treat. If you had a biopsy done, that should in theory, give you a name of what you are dealing with.
If all else fails, and you are close to a major medical center, like the Cleveland Clinic, your best bet to get answers may be in a University Medical Center. I know the University of Florida can usually figure out weird symptoms as the docs there think out of the box, so to speak. I have always had great assistance with my weird issues there. We can hope something might be accomplished in that milieu.
