My father has the itchy skin and the sores all over him. He's been on benadryl injections for ages. Well, we found something that really works. Aveeno makes a colloidal oatmeal bath that is FANTASTIC for this. My father is almost 100% healed up, despite the fact that his ESLD gets worse. Where he had oozey yellow sores, he now has pink skin growing. It's amazing. ANd the relief he feels from it, while not 100%, is tremendous.
Walmart carries their version of the same product and it's twice the product for half the price. Just thought I'd share. I know that the itching is one of those side effects of this disease that will drive people insane, and if someone else can find relief from it, then that makes me happy.
