I have now be diagnosed with liver disease, early stages. I am dealing with iching all over my body. Not severe, but bothersome. Can anyone tell me this?

Now that I have stopped drinking and changed my diet that has in turn stopped my liver from getting worse for the time being anyways, will the iching ever go away or am I stuck with it forever? :(

Thanks to anyone that has the answer for me. :confused:

  • hey rob, i dont know the answer. an old wives tale to help with itching is to put some bicarbonate of soda ( cheap from supermarket in baking section) in a bath and soak in it. Glad to hear you have stopped drinking, surely the itching will get better. If you were drinking lots ( too much or too regular ) causing your liver disease then it may be worth you dropping in to AA to check out with some folk there, see if you have an addiction or at least find out if any of them had the itch problem when they gave up drinking...

  • Hiya Rob sorry to hear about the itching i know how you feel, i have just come from the hospital as i have an itching problem and they covered me straight away while i was in there with Dermol 500 it took the itch away instantly but they have prescribed me Emollient cream, which is a thick and the skin absorbs it quick but give it room to breath, i feel a little better but hey it's only my first day, try asking your doctor for some. Hope it helps ...
