When I first got sick I was itching like a fool. So I can imagine how you feel.
I tried the following: Soaking in the tub with Aveno oatmeal bath. Aloe, straight from the plant,(leaves kept in the fridge, the cold felt good) Benadryl did not work for me, the Dr. gave me a prescription for Atarax, which I had used when I had hives, it knocked me out but it worked.
I was itching so bad that I even tried rolling on the carpet like the dogs do when they itch.
I hope the itching stops.
about the itching. My husband has tried 4 different medications (prescription) that has not helped for the itching. We have purchased everything over the counter you can immagine! I have even put corn startch all over him. He looked like the pilsbury doe boy. At one point I did corn starch and oatmeal. If that wasn't a mess. I will willing to try anything. His back seems to be the worst! Vanderbilt has now taken him off all but the Hydroxizine. That does give him an hour or so of relief. Crazy isn't it. I have decided that the itching could possibly be a good form of torture!!!. Sorry I couldn't help.
Hi, Ryno! I've been moisturing a lot and the itching is only mild now, in the middle of my back. My gall bladder was removed when the rt. lobe of my liver was removed (cancer.) I thought I would have a problem digesting fats, but I actually don't eat much fat in any form.
I do appreciate all the suggestions.
