    A few weeks ago I was feeling crappier than usual which is pretty crappy and I began itching and noticed I was starting to have a rash it got worse so I called the dr and he wasn't sure about it my blood sugar was 365 and I was feeling really weak.

    Well he put me on prednisone and anti itch meds and finally the rash is gone but the scars are terrible looking.

    Being that your blood sugar was 365, I assume you have diabetes?

    One who has diabetes should never be put on prednisone as it will make your sugar out of control. I don't know what your doctor is thinking but you really need to keep checking your sugar and bring this up to your doc.

    Your sugar being 365 is way out of control. There are other meds to deal with a rash other than prednisone and it is rarely if ever is used in diabetics.

    No offense, but your doctor doesn't sound like he/she knows what he is doing.

    You are taking an awful chance with your sugar being that high.

    Take care,
