Hives: These evanescent itchy bumps are most likely hives indicating an allergic reaction to something internal or external(food,temperature change,medication,exercise,etc). Sometimes there is no obvious cause. Taking an antihistamine like benadryl(causes drowsiness) or claritin(nondrowsy) usually helps. An allergist or dermatologist can evaluate and advise you best. ...Read more
Yes: If liver disease includes a rise in billirubin level, itching can become unbearable. I saw a pregnant woman once with elevated billirubin from pregnancy related liver stasis. Her itching was so intense that she would use coat hangers on the bottoms of her feet until they bled from her scratching. Obviously, the itching can be miserable in this situation. ...Read more

You're sick. Why?: You need to demand that your physician tell you what is wrong with your liver. To leave you without an answer is unacceptable. Do you have a medication allergy? Hopefully you're not drinking. Do you have cholestatic jaundice? A viral hepatitis? Missing wilson's or hemochromatosis would be bad but it happens. Nobody here can help you until you get a proper workup from a competent physician. ...Read more
Is skin itch related to liver problems as I have a liver problem and this itch is really driving me nuts?
I am on imuran (azathioprine) and have developed itching all over (no rash). It has been about 6 months since my last liver enzyme testing. I have heard that itching can happen with liver issues. Should i be worried?
Maybe: Possibly, but without more information it is difficult to say. Certain liver conditions can cause itching, however other medical skin disorders can result in similar symptoms. I would recommend you see your pcp to check some liver tests at the very least, which should lead to further discussions if abnormal. ...Read more

Itchy during summer nights, especially when I sleep without shirt. However the rest of day I do not itch at work. i see google said itching can be sign of liver disease, i take xanax (alprazolam). But feel 100%?
It is possible: That the itching represents a skin sensation related to sedative use. This is especially true if its been more than 6 hrs from last xanax (alprazolam) dose. I am not saying this is the reason, but may contribute to intensity of symptoms as well. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
ALT is 115 and I'm itching. Had us ct and mri along with barrage of other blood tests. Other bloods normal. Scan show fatty liver. Itching a symptom?
Not yet: In liver disease, itching doesn't happen until you start getting conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. I'd look for some other cause -- it may be something as simple as sensitivity to your laundry detergent. Fatty liver in the absence of hepatitis C, Wilson's, and alcohol abuse is largely genetic; getting into intensive fitness may help a lot. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What type of itch is typically associated with liver disease? Is it a deep itch or more of an ants crawling on your skin itch? Thanks.
Pruritus/Cholestasis: The liver has hepatocytes that elaborate bile into cannaliculi. Bile passageways coalesce into the common bile duct. When liver disease is present, flow of bile is interrupted and itching presents because of the buildup of toxic bile substances. Studies show this pruritus or itching affects the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet, but can be generalized as well. Varied intensity/duration. ...Read more
