i used to use a cooling spray it gave me instant relief, and im sure you know cool showers and baths help x
Oh I’ve not had that suggested before , where can I buy this from pharmacy or Superdrug kind of shop x
Good morning Shezza123,
Sorry to hear about your increased itch, I dont think the current heatwave helps!
As suggested, keeping as cool as possible may help.
If it persists , I would suggest you speak with your doctors as there are alternative medications availble to help manage itch in PBC (Primary Biliary Cholangitis) .
Hope it eases soon,
I normally itch and the doctor says I should use Claritin daily
Hi is Claritin a cream ? Thanks for advice sherrie x
Just seen b Claritin is an antihistamine am I safely able to take these with pbc ?
I second the use of a cooling spray. I also use a cooling moisturiser which has got menthol in it, something like dermacool, I noticed that aveeno also make a moisturiser with menthol in and I’m using that at the moment.
Thank you so much , last night was worse ever I ended up having to put cold wet flannel on my head to sleep x
Speak to your consultant or Doctor. I was prescribed tablets called rRifadin. They worked for me and I stopped taking them after a few weeks no more itching.
Hi my itching stared following my bleed in November, initially there was no questran available so took one piriton before bed. Help d a little then found this
e45 anti itch cream Which is excellent stuff. The bonus was my GP could prescribe it and having a prepaid certificate was helpful.
