Does anyone know if chronic pancreatitis can cause your abdomen to be itchy in the upper right?

In brief: Unsure

Pancreatitis can lead to biliary obstruction.
This would cause you to become jaundiced (skin and eyes turn yellow). Once people get to a certain level of jaundice they can start to itch all over. This is caused by deposits of bile salts in the skin. I have never heard of this being centered on ne area though.
