I'm sorry you have a nasty rash. Are you on any form of anti-depressant for you emet? If not you might be able to take an antihistamine which may ease you rash. At the same time I'm sure your dr knows the right thing to give you. How long do you have to take the streroids? Surely the main thing is to ease the rash and itchiness. If you gain a little weight it should disappear when you stop taking the seroids. If you aren;t sure try looking it up on the web - there maybe some advice or general point about it on there that will help.
Whatever you decide (to take the steroids or not) I hope your rash clears up soon [img]smileys/smilies_01.gif[/img]
