It depends on the cause and the severity of your problem. You haven't said what the cause is for the rash. I would NOT automatically take prednisone for a skin rash unless it was caused by a problem that prednisone is designed to help. Prednisone is serious medication and you should only be taking it by the orders of a dr. Be careful with prednisone.
