confused Hi Everyone,  i have been reading your posts for quite a while, but have only posted a couple of times.  My husband is 60 and has end stage liver disease.   He has been hanging in there, we are trying to get him on a transplant list , however he has heart issues as well and we haven't been successful with it so far - but we are working on it...  He is really sick and nauseated all the time,and he is down to 175 lbs from 209, he is just so sick.  He itches like crazy , and now he has bumps (like welts) all over, and this morning he woke up with them in his mouth and ears - is anyone familiar with this?  This is just so hard on him and  I feel for all of you going thru this as well - but it is such a comfort to read the posts and know there are people out there that understand.   He has a doctors appt Monday -
thanks

Mermaid, It is not unusual for the itching with liver disease. I am concerned about hte welt and also having them in his mouth that sounds more like an allergic reaction to something and he has maybe hives that needs to be addressed. I would check with a Dr on call.

He should also try taking Benadryl.  This does sound like some sort of allergic reaction.

Hugs,
