itchy rash
Was recently diagoned with hep c, had for years they say. Probably explains my cholestasis with pregnancy, twice with both kids. Now I am having the same intense itching with no sleep! Started on my belly, then wrists and ankles, lots of swelling. Went a way for a week or so now its back!! Antihist, anti itch cream, nothing works! Is this lichen planus? Cholestasis?(not pregnant) It gets very hot and intense at night, help me!!!!

Your condition sounds miserable; you didn’t mention being on HCV treatment, so I’ll assume you aren’t.

What stage liver disease are you in? Have you had a biopsy yet? How about liver function tests, more specifically, total bilirubin?

There is a medicine that worked for me.  It is Cholesteran.  Ask your doctor about it.  It works but you have to be able to drink a gritty drink.
