Does anyone have info or treatments for itching? My scalp and lower back have a very itchy rash. Tried ointment shampoo, antihistamine and steroids…wont go away. I am Stage 4 liver cirrhosis. Dermatologist and PVP are stumped.
Thanks, I’ll try it!

@skolotilin, I hope that you find some relief from the itching. Have you asked your doctors why you have this itching?
Congratulations on a stable and improved liver. What is being done to monitor your liver?
When my ammonia levels get hi I start itching all over. When levels drop itching stops
I go to Mayo on the 20th – 22nd of September for follow up and more tests
That will be here before you know it. Hope you have a good check up!
How have you been feeling? Any hospitalizations that you had to have?
Thanks, I’ll check mine out.
I just got back from the Mayo clinic in MN. And my meld score dropped. They also found a dime size tumor on my kidney
@racing212, what does this mean for you? What is the next step?
They took me off the list and said come back on 6 months and we'll check the kidney again
Hi, @racing. It is good to hear your voice.
Why are you off the transplant list? Was it your MELD score or the kidney cyst?
How are you feeling?
Do you have questions that I can help you with?
Meld score went down to a 12
I'm getting so tired of seeing Dr's and taking medication
@racing212 I sincerely empathize with your disappointment and frustration. My liver and kidneys were damaged by a bout with sepsis. My kidneys recovered enough that my meld score dropped to 12 and I thought I would never get a transplant. I remember sobbing during one of an endless string of paracenteses at the hopelessness of the situation. A couple months later I was listed and was transplanted only a month later. Things change very fast. I pray you will be back on the list soon.
