Rash: If the rash is extremely itchy it sounds like a stress related pomphoylyx dermatitis.
It may also a medication you are allergic to. If Medrol (methylprednisolone) did not help try drinking Tonic water. It has quinine which is a component of a drug called Plaquinol which helps with autoimmune rashes.
You should be worked up by a dermatologist.
