I have PV and get terrible itching for about 20- minutes after a shower or bath. A 30-minute bath solves the problem. I hope it works for you.
Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Blood Cancers & Disorders Support Group.
Jakafi stopped the itching for me as well as many other PV side effects.
I see that it is very expensive $16,000 to&18,000. Can you get it for less?

Yes talk to your doctor they should be able to help you.
@robmcburney6999, despite the title referring to itching not related to bathing, I think you might find helpful tips from @claire39 @splashgirl1961 @cindy316 @cblowers1 @buckaroobanzai @pamelasue67 and many others in this related discussion:
