A prednisone taper can affect your blood sugars. Talk with your prescribing doctor and see what he/she wants you to do (ie. monitor your blood sugars a little more frequently while you are on the taper). The prednisone dose is not unusually high and a prednisone taper would be appropriate for the unknown rash, you just need to know how to manage your diabetes while on the prednisone. Ask your primary care physician for guidance in this situation. Good luck.
