Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there.Thank you for your question.I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
Itching is an uncommon symptom that can happen after stopping alcohol intake but it is something that does happen in a number of people.
I would recommend that you should gradually wean off alcohol rather than stopping cold turkey which may help with this symptom.
Also, you can try using doxylamine rather than piriton to see if that would help you better when you do get itching next time around.
Also, if you really do want to stop cold turkey, the best thing to do is to have valium prescribed to you to control symptoms of withdrawal. Valium (diazepam) is the most effective medication for withdrawal symptoms.
