I was prescribed Prednisone 20mg for 4 days for back

I was prescribed Prednisone 20mg for 4 days for back pain. I took 4 yesterday and then 2 today. My heart feels like it’s going to jump out my chest. Is it the medication that’s causing this. Will a baby aspirin help I’m very concerned as I’ve never had an increased heart rate of 130!!
Thank you

My doctor prescribed Predisone for low back pain. The pills are 10 mg and say to take 4 a day for 3 days, 3 tablets for 3 days, 2 tablets for 3 days, 1 tablet for 3 days. Previously I took them 5 for one day and tapered down to 1, for a total of 15. I cannot remember what size tablets. Is this recent prescription appropriate?

I had itching from the inside out and started scratching. I originally had it near my belly button (yeast). It continued to itch and was on my abs, waist, back, arms and thigh tops. I went to see a Derm and she prescribed Ivermectin 3 mg with Prednisone 10mg. My itching has lessened a lot but my back still itches. I can t think of having scabbies, and she noted an allergic reaction to shampoo. What are your thoughts? Could yeast be the culprit? Thanks!
