I don't have any experience with Lortab specifically, but I have found that most opiate pain meds give me itchy hands and feet, and itchy earlobes for some reason.
I have found that regular antihistimine-only Benadryl works well to relieve the itch. The downside is that it makes me groggy, but sometimes one capsule works well enough. And it is always helpful at night when I need to be sleepy anyway. Just a thought if you haven't tried that yet.
I hope you find some answers and relief soon!
