my grandson is only three and has a sick liver. he itches all the time and scratches until he bleeds. does someone have any ideas to help relieve his itch? we have to be careful of medicines due to his poor liver function but will take all suggestions to his doctors. thanks
Sometimes antihistamines such as cetirizine or loratdaine may be used in mild liver disease (but is contraindicated in severe liver disease), and since he is so young it should be avoided. Sometimes calamine lotion may be used - but please ask your doctor first before using it.
