Question:
I need your help. I am a 26 year old male with Severe Ulcerative Colitis. I got a blood transfusion in January of 2002, and was also diagnosed with high liver counts. They are going to do a Biopsy on me next month to see what it exactly is that is causing the problem, but they are pretty sure it is no Serosis since they did an MRI on me in March of 2002 and my Bile ducts looked ok. My question is, with in the past 2 months, I have had severe itching all over my body, including my legs, arms and the top of my scalp. The doctors have yet to help me with any meds to stop this, and have yet to give me a cause. In the meantime, I am itching all over and it is driving me nuts. It is as bad as Chicken Pox (but I know it's not Chicken Pox)with no rash, but a few little red bumps all over, but they do not look like Chicken Pox. i am about to fill the tub with Alcohol and soak in it, it is so bad. do you have any ideas. PLEASE HELP. Thanks

Answer:
This is definitely a case where we need to see you in person. There can be a number of reasons why this type of symptom can occur but without a history, physical examination and a review of your blood test results it would be ill-advised to attempt to make a 'guess' at the likely problem and its remedies by e-mail. May we suggest you make an appointment early in the week and please bring with you as complete a record of your previous and current treatment, including blood test results and medication, as possible. Best regards
