I figured out that I have an allergic reaction to medicine my doctor gave me and I have a really bad rash EVERYWHERE on my body. I was prescribed to take 10mg of prednisone. 1 tablet by mouth twice a day for 4 days. I have a play tomorrow! I took my first pill last night and a pill this morning. When will the rash go away!!!
How long does it take for prednisone 10mg to start working?

Hi Rosie... try not to freak out about this, ok??? It will go away. Whatever you do... DO NOT take more of the prednisone at a time with the hopes it will heal the rash quicker. That will make you hyper, anxious, nervous... sleepless and lots of other worse problems you don't need or want.
The prednisone starts working right away. There is no way to make the body heal faster. It heals in time. But the redness may go down quicker. Have a good time at the play. Being on stage is a wonderful thing.
It takes a few days for the rash to go away. Make up works wonders if you have to be in a play, lolol
