I am not really sure what the above condition is. But I know that Prednisone is a steroid given to pets as well as humans to treat various skin infections that no other medications can take care of. It is used for sunburns all the way to psoriases (sp?), which is what I have taken it for, for 3 years when I was a teen. It takes a while for the skin irritation to clear up. I would suggest asking your vet if, due to the circumstances, the dosage should be adjusted/increased, or if he plans on continuing the prednsone after 30 days.
