  I have cirrhosis of the liver. My arms itch a lot and when I scratch I`m left with bruises all over my arm. What causes this?

Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your condition. If you have cirrhosis of liver then you could be having bile pigments/acids or endorphins under the skin. This can cause itching. Usually this responds to a control of cirrhosis symptoms. Medicines can be taken to control the itch. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
