Common Questions and Answers about Itchy palms liver disease

itchy

Is it a liver disease you get during pregnancy? Every time I Google my symptoms, that's what it points to but says everything goes back to normal after delivery and I'm having my daughter Friday so if that's the case, I gotta suffer 2 more days!!
Could there be a connection between this itch and liver or kidney disease. I have read that itching can be a symptom of primary biliary cirrhosis (I am in the right age group). Some of the other symptoms I have are mild, these are fatigue, depression, obsessive/complusive, itchy hands and palms in the early years of the itch.But no other outward signs such as juandice. Does anyone have experience with this?
Stay Hydrated - Drink sufficient amounts of water to keep the entire body hydrated. For more on water and liver disease, read How Much Water Does Your Liver Need? 4. Avoid Soap - Use a non-soap cleanser such as Cetaphil or a similar substitute to prevent excessive drying of the skin. 5. Take Milk Thistle - Since milk thistle protects liver cells from damage and aids in detoxification, this herb can help prevent the backup of toxins in the bloodstream. 6.
I have read that both the thckening of the cords and red palms (Palmar Erythema) have to do liver disease and cirrhosis. Why not Google Liver disease and red palms. I would have embedded it here but I'm not sure how you do that. Best...
Hello, What you seem to be having is palmar and plantar erythema. It is seen in liver disease, portal hypertension, thyrotoxicosis or allergic reactions. If the stools are dark yellow, then definitely your liver function needs to be evaluated. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
If an internal disease is found, whether it's kidney disease, iron deficiency or a thyroid problem, treating that disease often relieves the itch. Lastly, Phototherapy can also be tried. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
If your liver function comes back normal that does not rule out a liver problem. My liver profile was normal but found out that this disease has caused major scarring of my liver. The fatigue can also be an indicator. Please have your doctor look into this at your next appt. I just got "lucky" that they found mine during an ultrasound while checking the size of an aneurysm. I have been fatigued for years and have been disabled for 4 years for heart issues and chronic pain.
Since the outbreak I have had itchy palms and occasionally itchy ankles and feet, but my only outbreak of DH is on my elbows. Celiac Sprue or an allergy to wheat can be very silent and difficult to diagnose without the proper blood tests or biopsy of the small intestine. I'm hoping that following a gluten free diet will resolve my DH and itchy hands and feet, not to mention my chronic anemia.
all itchy arm sufferers....please look into brachioradial pruritus. My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery pills..my list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs.
OK, I'm 36, and I've had the same itchy leg problem since I was in elementary school. It only comes up when I walk or jog in COOL weather, not in the heat of Summer. It happened again this morning and I hate it! It can definitely drive someone completely insane! I'm not sold on the 'rise in body temperature' theory b/c I'm able to exercise when it's hot - and we also have a hot tub that has never given me a problem... I'm so tired of not knowing why!
Such intense itching at the arch of the feet and palms of hands can also be a sign of acutely raised liver enzymes. I have experienced this twice. The first time the acutely raised liver enzymes was due to me not tolerating the estrogen in birth control pills. The second time it was accompanied by nausea, and I immediately recognized the intense itching signs.
I know there is a disease of the liver that is called obstetric cholestasis, but that covers the body (ex. the palms, the feet, etc) and this is only on my stomach. I cannot bear it any longer. I want to sleep. On top of that, I just found more and more stretch marks this week! Not only on my stomach, but on my hips, my butt, and my thighs! Ew, and on the back of my arms by the armpits! I feel disguisting!
I believe I've read that as the liver is not breaking things down as well some of the toxins cause your skin to be itchy. (Don't know if that's the most technically correct explanation but it's something like that.) It could be true for your kidneys as well I believe. The liver/autoimmune hepatitis shows up with a positive antismooth muscle antibody. I don't have elevated liver enzymes but do have this antibody.
I have the blistery, itchy, hurty, flesh colored bumps on my palms and fingers, too. I don't have them all the time, but I have noticed that my bumps seem to multiply in relation to how stressed I feel. The ones on my palms drive me crazy until I succeed in scratching them open to release the clear liquid. OK, it's pus. I haven't gone to a dermatologist because I didn't want to pay a specialist big money to tell me that they can only guess what it is.
I suffered from all the debilitating itchy leg symptoms described here, primarily on Sunday mornings when I was extra stressed trying to get the family out the door in time to teach Sunday school. Since I always change the sheets on Saturday, my husband suggested that it might be the detergent/fabric softener. Switching to unscented, hypo-allergenic products did help to alleviate the problem, and today I am symptom free.
I have the same situation. It started a little while after I gave birth. It is only an itchy inner labia. No other side affects. I was tested for a yeast and bacteria infections. My ob-gyn has no clue (I went to 2). It comes and goes and is itchy!! I can not figure this out!!!
Here is everything I could find on itchy palms. parasitic skin infections Hand Eczema Psoriasis Pitted Keratolysis Medications Medical Conditions: such as chronic kidney failure or liver diseases Crohn's disease Stress Could be any one of those things. You would have to see a doctor or dermatologist for a proper diagnosis.
Hi: I know itchy skin doesn't sound like a big problem, but my legs and arms itch like they were about to fall off everytime I take a shower. I don't have dry skin and I use Aveeno body lotion everyday to make sure I get enough moisture. The itching is like an intense tingling only on my arms and legs (mostly on my legs) and it's so bad that sometimes I just want to run yelling into the street.
My doc put me on PTU and I was feeling alot better but, I quickly had an allergic reaction to it. VERY itchy and swollen palms and ankles. I am now on target for a total thyroidectomy in 10 days. I am just curious is some of my symptoms will go away once the thyroid is out? I am having really bad muscle pains in my back and shoulder. I looked on line and Graves can cause muscle wasting. Did any of you experience this and/or did it get better? Good luck everyone!!!!!
also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)... ...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse. I also notice very very very very small blister type bumps on my fingers that i have popped and released some sort of fluid.. the bumps on my penis/butt/thighs do not seem to have any fluid in them..
You need to check your bilirubin. Some people with liver disease have elevated bilirubin, and it can cause severe skin itch. Usually, itching is much worse at night and is located all over the body, but especially on soles of the feet and the palms of the hands. If your bilirubin is normal, probably skin itch has a different cause-not related to the liver. Hepatitis C by itself will not cause skin itch, unless the liver is seriously damaged and can not process bilirubin well.
I suggested to him that I want to know why - because I don't want to end up with worse liver disease - I also mentioned that my daily meds of Claritin and singulair for 18 years could have some thing to do with it ( I am 57 with asthma) what suggestions for my next steps - I feel like he is just blowing me off :( thank you in advance
Very bad headache (lasted about 1 week straight) Partial numbness in left toes Pain in arms (shooting pain from elbow to hands) Pain in hands/fingers Twitching (all over) Pins and needles in hands (also numbness and falling asleep a lot at night that went away after changing position) Sore neck and shoulders Pain in bottoms of feet Occasional weakness Fatigue Eye pain Ear Pain Recurring Rash on belly (itchy and blotchy) Symptoms come and go and weren’t always continuous… Saw my doctor who
She'd be matching the state of her liver. EVERYTHING is processed through the liver via the blood, so if it doesn't work, the body doesn't work. That particular liver problem is typically a slowly progressive one, and it's one in which there are a number of fairly obvious symptoms/problems that crop up as the hardening and fibrosis gets worse and worse. Fatigue can be a biggie.
Hi, Generalized pruritus, or itching all over the body could be due to a systemic disease, medication use, various infections, iron deficiency, liver disease, kidney disease, high or low thyroid function, chronic urticaria, as well as certain cancers such as lymphoma. Are there other signs or symptoms present? How long have you been experiencing this?
To go a little more with this, both feet at times severely itch in the middle of my arch, same as my palms. It can be one at a time and have been as both palms and one foot. Its not a laughing matter when you have to go through life wondering what going on with your body. But for sure with me its not carpal tunal in my hands, I also been tested, there was nothing. (Still searching.
you have some classic symptoms of liver disease. red palms and itching are common to the virus Hepatitis C, which is now the new epidemic in town. my first suggestion would be to be tested for all forms of hepatitis. my doctor was dismissive for yeears, and I got the " I don't know " also. they did same tests but NOT for the most common and obvious largest blood disease namely Hep.
From what I am reading, a ratio over 1 indicates advanced liver disease...I do have itchy palms, little yellow bumps appear from time to time, and have been quite tired lately...I've also noticed bloating. I am normal weight though - 5'7" at 125 pounds and I work out... I can't believe I may have done such damage to my liver...I thought because I wasn't drinking most days that I was ok? I feel like I'm too young to have done liver damage? Anyone have any words of wisdom?
i am actually not sure either as they can be run with different technologies.
