Itchy Skin and Liver Disease Progression

Chronic, uncontrollable, itchy skin can change your quality of life. It can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep and ruin your concentration. It can even lead to anxiety and depression. Most people deal with itchy skin, or pruritus, at some point. Causes include: exposure to poison ivy, allergies, age, or dry air. But if your itch started on the soles of your feet or palms of your hands and then spread, it could be a sign of progressive liver disease.
