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

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.
