Ways To Relieve Common Hepatitis C Pains
Experts say that itching is common in liver disease because the body is unable to properly filter out poisons, causing them to pool in the blood. This leads to yellow skin and eyes, and fits of itching, or pruritus. Try an antihistamine, such as Benadryl or Atarax. Avoid soaps with scents, as that may irritate the skin more, along with smoking cigarettes. Sometimes, a cold pack on the itchy area may help relieve the sensation.
Sometimes you may not have an appetite. Other times, it’s hard to keep food down. If you’re feeling nauseated in the afternoons, don’t just stop eating altogether. Adjust your schedule and try eating bigger meals in the mornings and, perhaps, smaller portions after the nausea subsides.
