Good question. Did you see a dermatologist? Sounds to me you have scarred skin.
Prednisone does thin the skin. However it is over years of use or very high doses. Still, your skin may be sensitive and should be carefully checked by the dermatologist. Keep hands hydrated and wounds covered with antibiotics and bandaids if open sores. Have this looked at soon.
