I used an over the counter cream " Triamcinolone Acetonide  " and it worked great for me. Other then that maybe others will chime in here but you can also check in the search box.
Good Luck with your tx

I used the same & it worked wonders. I was lucky to have a pharmacist that wcetaphas an expert on hep c meds & the sx. He mixed triamcinolene acetonide 0.5% with cetaphil moisturizer which made it easier to spread.
God Bless & good luck.

I used Hydroxyzine 50 mg oral every 6 hours, Fluocinonide ointment topical, and Clobetesol solution topical. The Hydroxyzine is what really did the trick. The topicals help, but the Hydroxyzine is what worked the best. My rash and itching were not under control until I got on high dose Hydroxyzine.

If you have medical questions/treatment issues like this it would be better to post in the Hepatitis C forum. This is the social side and not as many people visit here. Many more people will respond if you post medical questions on the following forum:

By the way, welcome to the forum.
