Entocort rash

Has anyone experienced a rash as the result of tapering off of Entocort? I tapered from one a day to none a few days ago and have a ridiculous rash on my torso, chest, under my knee. It itches, but they aren't ulcer-like and are smooth bumps that are very red.

My GI says it's unlikely to be Entocort related, but I'm skeptical since that is the only thing that changed.

Are you on any other medications? Rashes are listed as a rare side effect of Entocort. How long her you taking it? Can you post an image of the rash?
