If you take prednisone for a rash and stop 2-3 days early will the rash come back?

Maybe (not) . . .: Depends upon cause of rash & whether resolution of rash was coincidental to Prednisone or not. If rash due to infection & you weren't given antibiotics, then improvement was just coincidence & will probably get worse shortly, regardless of prednisone.
