Customer Question

my 6yr old has had a rash on his face and trunk for about 5 days. I took him to the doctor and they put him on prednisone for 5 days. It has not helped at all. He is not running a fever and feels fine. but his face appears to be swollen. He has very bad alergeys. The rash seems to get worse when in heat. do you have any ideas or should I take him back to the doctor
