I was on prednisolone from April 2014 (PMR) starting 20 mg a day, and last Christmas the rheumatologist told me to drop the dose to 5 mg every other day. The itching started very soon after initially on my back, followed by lumps and rashes. It is now from my scalp to my ankles. Only my face, palms and feet have been unaffected. I have had tests and am due the follow up with the dermatologist in a weeks time. I believe it is LP and that it was sparked by a too-abrupt reduction in the steroid. I am still on the steroid, was put back to 5, then 4 six weeks ago, 3 today for next six weeks. The PMR is nearly gone but the skin problem is getting worse, I am close to despair.
