Patient Comments: Jaundice - Symptoms

What were the signs and symptoms associated with jaundice in you or someone you know?

Comment from: Donna, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: March 06

I am almost 55 years old. I have cirrhosis of the liver in its final stage. For the last say 6 months. I have been having itching all over, it drives me nuts! Now my eyes are turning yellow. I'm not sure how to treat jaundice. With the liver itch I find taking Chlortabs are helpful. Sometimes I use calamine lotion that helps too! It seems like the itching starts in the late afternoon.
