Welcome to the forum.
We are a group of caregivers, partners, friends and patients whose lives are affected by liver disease.
There is some educational material at the top of our forum that might be helpful. Looks like you have begun to learn the ropes.
When I came here amost 2 years ago, my partner was very ill. He has sobered up, met the transplant requirements, and is almost a year post surgery now.
For almost 9years prior to the surgery, with Hep C and all that he had a horrible time with itching.
Folks here recommend Gold Bond.
But Mike drank a packet of Cholyestyramine after each meal and it did something with the bile salts I never quite understook, and it took the itching away completely. He would scratch himself in the night until he bled! And it stoped the minute his Hep Doc put him on the stuff!
Maybe Mike had some combination of conditions that made it work ,but it can't hurt to ask.
Come back often and tell your story. We'll drop by and share ours too.
