I wear very soft clothes. The prednisone I think helps alot but also makes very hungry. I have gain 15 pounds . No good on me I'm only 4ft11

I put white vinegar on a wash cloth and drape it over the sore areas on my arms and legs. Just like treating a sunburn.

Thank you everyone for your input. It is a very large area on my back and a good portion of my chest is getting blotchy. Shoulders and biceps as well. Called my specialist but she's not around till Wednesday. It is odd because I've watched it get worse over the last month considerably worse. In the last week it seems to be faster.
