Horrible rash that won't go away.

So, I have had this rash covering my entire torso, my arms, and my thighs for a little over two months. It is incredibly itchy all the time and it just seems to be getting worse and spreading. It's made up of small red bumps that are grouped together. I assumed it was some kind of allergic reaction and have since changed to perfume and dye free laundry detergent, but that has not made a difference. I have been to the doctor twice, he said it looked like an allergy rash the first time I went in. The second time I went in he seemed completely at a loss. I just finished a month long, tapered off prednisone treatment. It did not really help, other than keeping it somewhat under control for a short period. Now that I am off it, it is completely out of control again. I have literally tried just about everything to make it even bearable to live with, but nothing has worked. I have an appointment with a dermatologist schedule in a month, but I don't know what I am going to do until then. I can't remember the last time I slept more than a few hours. I am losing my mind and completely at a loss. I really need some help. I was considering going to my doctor again to see if it's possible to get back on another prednisone prescription, but i don't know if that would do more harm than good. Any helpful ideas would be great.

Thank You
