I need help here. I moved into cirrhosis last year. I started with a MELD score of 7. Now my MELD score is 11 and I am itching something terrible. I mean deep DEEP itching. I am scratching so hard I've got bruises and sores all over me. I've tried Gold Bond Lotion and Benedryl Spray but neither will do the trick. Once I start itching, I can't stop. Is there anyone out there who can give me some advice to stop or even ease this terrible itching? Old Tiff? Anyone?

Thanks for the help!

HI OLD FRIEND HOW IS YOU HCV? ARE YOU ON TX NOW? DID YOU CLEAR? DO YOU REMEMBER ME KIDDO?

I CLEARED 13 YEARS AGO AND A STAGE 4 LIVER. I STILL HAVE THAT ITCH SOME TIMES NOT AS OFTEN AS I USE TO. BUT I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. FROM THE INSIDE OUT EVERY PART OF YOUR BODY EVEN OUT THE EYES.

MORE FLUIDS AND A BENADRYL PILL. THEY ALSO MAKE BENADRLY JEL THAT HELPS TOO.. BUT AS ALWAYS ASK YOUR MD PLEASE..
