I had almost the same rash - neck, inner arms, chest when I was tapering Entocort. Before Entocort I was on Prednisone. I am not on steroids now and I do not have that rash (but I have anal/perianal/vulva rash worse than anything, the cause of which doctors cannot detect or cure :( I used to put some cooling cream on (chamomille,menthol) and it helped me and also cool shower and fan. Hope you will get rid of it soon.
