Hello. Been on prednisone for 8 years. The red marks indicate another problem. There are various conditions that create those marks. A few red spots under the skin are normal. What you describe needs the attention of a physician. Anything that is not helping and is open has to go to your main Doctor or dermatologist. You could have any variety of infection including fungus, MRSA, bacterial.
Please see your physician. By the way, have you had a recent blood test? There are liver diseases that show up like that. Not to worry you but just to let you know this needs attention right away.
