I have my second dose of PI in as many summers so I recognized it right away. Got on prednisone starting at 50mg and tapering down. After four days I am still getting small outbreaks on new parts of my body. As the prednisone dosages become lower, I'm worried the spread and severity will increase. Should I be worried, or do I need to give it more time? What is my next step?
