Liver disease skin rashes

Common Questions and Answers about Liver disease skin rashes


1714226 tn?1308625105 hi, I am a 1 1/2 year post liver transplant patient. My advice is to see a GI specialist who focuses on liver disease. There are a series of diagnostic procedures they would recommend if warranted. If liver disease is confirmed then they should request blood labs to determine a MELD score. In a nutshell, this can become very overwhelming but I am trying to reassure you that there many steps to take before determining the worst case.
1714226 tn?1308625105 Hi, my name is Patty and I am 29 years old. To say that liver disease runs in my family would be a huge understatement, for my grandmother, aunt, and my father have all died of cirrhosis of the liver. Neither of the 3 were alcoholics either. Since the age of 18, I have had routine checkups and blood work, keeping a close eye on my liver function and health. In January of 2010, I was diagnosed with gallbladder disease and had surgery to remove it.
Avatar f tn I have skin rashes hair loss, brittle nails and digestion issues. I cannot sleep. What are the best pains meds I can take? OTC products do not do a thing.

Avatar f tn Hello, It can be pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. A dermatologist’s evaluation will be the best.

Avatar n tn My TSH levels were done it was in the lab normal range. My question is whether tiny raised skin rashes and swellings are side effects of b12 injections and bralix tabs. I have never taken these medications in life prior to this.
Avatar n tn Itching can be a symptom of liver disease. You should contact her health care provider. What kind of blood work has been done and how recently? Particularly liver panel and thyroid panel.
Avatar m tn I just got my hepatitis and liver test, it is all fine, no hepatitis and liver function is all good, but i dont understand why my rashes keep coming up, could it be possible the case of HIV?
Avatar m tn Urticaria (chapaki), also known as sheet pitt in Ayurveda, is an allergic skin disorder that is characterised by the appearance of raised rashes, redness and itching. It can happen anywhere on the skin including the scalp, lips, palms, soles and even genitals. Ayurveda believes that urticaria occurs in response to certain substances which are produced in the body as a result of metabolic disturbances. It may occur due to indigestion, overeating or because of eating food unsuitable for the body.
Avatar f tn What you should do is get the results of the blood tests before you start worrying. There is no percentage in worrying without data. You certainly could have HCV from transfusions and that can cause skin rashes. Continute collecting information. Don't panic yet! DTD PS Rheumatologists treat autoimmune diseases!

Avatar f tn Internal diseases. Itchy skin can be a symptom of an underlying illness. These include liver disease, kidney failure, iron deficiency anemia, thyroid problems and cancers, including leukemia and lymphoma. The itching usually affects the whole body. The skin may look otherwise normal except for the repeatedly scratched areas. Nerve disorders. Conditions that affect the nervous system — such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes mellitus, pinched nerves and shingles (herpes zoster) — can cause itching.
Avatar f tn While not a rash, it appears as redness of the palms and is associated with liver disease. It can sometimes take on a blotchy appearance that may be mistaken for a rash.
Avatar m tn From your description it appears your husband’s liver disease has progressed to ESLD (End Stage Liver disease). I assume he’s been evaluated for transplant? No one in here is qualified to determine how ill he is beyond the obvious from your description. A ‘MELD’ score might offer a glimpse into morbidity/mortality rates; this score is derived from rather common lab values including INR, bilirubin and creatinine:
Avatar f tn She mostly itches under her breasts, on her chest (under her bra straps), her ankles, and wrists. Tiny bumps come with the rashes and for the rashes under her bra strap have dry skin looking scales on top, and she also has a slight itch in her genital regions. Could the itching be from her hyperactive thyroid medication? She's been on all of her meds for about a year now, but she refuses to go to the doctor to treat her rash because she says that she is okay.
Avatar f tn She does not have any rashes. The only skin abrasions are where she has scratched herself. This little lady is in misery. She has lotion put on her body everyday after her bath, but not on her face...that's why I noticed it was so dry. The only medication she takes is for her thyroid, which she has taken for many years. She is mentally alert but she cannot hear at all (due to age) and she can still walk but uses a wheelchair also. She doesn't take vitamins or food supplements.
Avatar m tn I was suspecting that it was a liver disease , but my liver enzymes and ultrasound showed that everything ( liver , gallbladder ) are normal . The doctor told me it is IBS , prescribed medications but the symptoms continue . I have to say that I am generally very stressed and suffered from depression in the past for 4-5 years . Does anyone has similar symptoms to mine ? Please give me some advice , this is driving me insane....
Avatar f tn Hi All - I have been experiencing yellowing skin and eyes, the eyes are barely noticeable, but the skin is definitely not in its normal skin tone. I recently got result from my gastro and they were normal ok for the AST and ALT, however bilirubin total was at 1.5 which was high. Did a CAT scan and my liver appears normal with no inflammation present. There is however after the CAT scan they noticed a thickness in my stomach lining, which upon getting an endoscopy, gastritis was found. Had H.
Avatar m tn As far as I know the other diseases and conditions that you have are not life-threatening. Advanced liver disease can be. You must see a hepatologist (a liver specialist) at a liver transplant hospital. They work on a daily basis with patients that have cirrhosis of the liver. No other doctor is qualified to treat someone with as many medical conditions as you have. You mention Houston.
Avatar n tn for my Hep C which consists of daily dosage of tablets and once weekly injection for a period almost of 8 to 9 months and before the therapy ended I started getting skin rashes and on my report to my nurse I would mention and also show the rashes on my skin but would be told it will go away after completing my medication and also give some more time even after the treatment until medication clears from my body and I did give some time and now after 2 years the skin rashes were confirmed by 3
