it would be extremely unusual for the itching to this severe without having a readily apparant liver problem.  My colleague nancy bach is an expert in cholestatic liver diseases and sees patients in monmouth and englewood and is wonderful.  You can call 212 2410034 to make an appointment with her. dr nora bergasa is one of the leading experts in pruritus in the world and is at metroplitan hospital here in NYC.
