Oncology (General Cancer)/itching and rash


You answered a couple of questions previously. I quit drinking, platelets came back up, imaging showed no cirrohsis of the liver, elargement or damage. I am itchy all over my body and my feet still have rash spots on the top of them although scabbed over and now my nose has pimples and my eyes itch. I get another blood test in the morning. I also have super bad teeth and think I have infection in them. Is it liver, abcessed teeth or something else?


It sounds like you may have a skin problem.  As for the spots on the feet, they will gradually heal but will be discolored for a while.  I don't think you can blame your bad teeth.  If your liver isn't working well (and just because it looks normal doesn't mean it is normal) you could be itching from that problem.  All in all, I can think of a lot of tests to do, but the first thing is to have your doctor look at your skin and your lab results and decide where to go from there.
