She has a rash that has went from head to toe and a Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack hasn't helped. Stress makes it worse nothing else or time of day. Not in private area.
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.
