Hi everyone,
i have been breaking out in hives and terrible itching for about a month. Can anyone tell me if this could be related to my HepC? Also this is rather embarassing but does anyone else seem to have trouble with gas? Sometimes it is so bad that I don't even want to wear pants because the pressure causes so much pain. Anything on this also?

I have had problems with horrible itching before that my hepatoligist says is related to my autoimmune hep, so I would think that would be applicable to other liver disorders. However, I have never had hives relating to my liver disorder but I have when I have had allergic reactions to things. Have you changed any of your personal productts, soap, shampoo, etc or any of your laundry products? If I were you I would check with my doctor just to make sure. Let us know how things turn out.

Hi, I wondered if you started new medicine? Usually, hives are associated with a reaction to either medication or household products; soap etc. You should report hives to your Dr immediately. If you should become short of breath or feel like your throat is swelling that is a medical emergency. Hives are the bodies way of telling you it is reacting to something. Also hives can be brought on in some cases from an emotional issue. Since it is near xmas have you been near a pine tree? Because hives can be from an environmental source it could be from something like that. I know itching is associated with some cases of hep and liver disease but I am not familiar with cases of hives. Anyway, stop and figure out if you have started and new meds or new products, new plants in the house, etc.

Hi Pasey.

Itching and hives are extremely common side effects of Hep C - we all get it to one degree or another. When the liver can not fully detox the blood - the skin attempts to. Warm baths with baby powder after elps me & get hydrocortizone cream. If you hives get worse after that see a Dr. - but you will be told to get hydrocortizone cream. Just my experience.

Thank you all for the replies. I can't not think of anything new that I have been using but will ask my son if he can think of anything new also. I'm getting some hydro. cream today and I always love an excuse for a long soaky bath! LOL
Thanks to all of you. I feel like I have found an extended family that I can talk to about my condition. It is already helping me feel better. If not phsyically than emotionally for sure. You have no idea how wonderful that is to me.
Thoughts to all,

Hi Pasey,

Diet & over hydration effect how well our livers can detox the blood. When I got severe hives I went vegetarian & tried to drink a gallon of water a day - the liver loves help with a good flush. & LOTS of Vit C - lemon is an excellent natural source. Put it in your water, sprinkle it on veggies, use it as much as you can. Let me know how that hydro cream works.
