Customer Question

Hi on Saturday when I went to sleep I woke up in the middle of the night with a itchy scalp. I am currently experiencing a itchy scalp and burning and tingling sensation only in the back of my head. I believe that it is an allergic reaction from an insect bite. Will Prednisone solve the burning sensation that i eas prescribed from the emergency room?
