As was said above, there are some things you can do to affect the water retention that is such a common side-effect of prednisone usage. But really, who cares? It's just a temporary superficial side-effect. If it really does bother you, you can monitor your fluid, sodium, carbohydrate, and overall caloric intake combined with effective exercise. Personally, I think all that is too much trouble simply to be concerned about temporary water retention and increased blood pressure.
