I hope it helps... Just another thought to consider. I get the rash every single time I taper off steroids, even if I go quite slowly. I just know now that the rash will last about 2-3 weeks then go away once my body adjusts to being off the steroids. Not all of my doctors believed that I could get a rash from discontinuing the steroids. My dermatologist did though! And, my new GI believed it as well. But, after being on/off steroids so many times by now, I know myself, without a doubt, that is my body's reaction - like withdrawal - until my own adrenal glands kick in fully again.
