: : I have had pv for 4.5 years now I'm 49 . Recently I've been experiencing itching especially my legs that dosesn't respond to phelobotomy or anti itch drugs. I'm looking for an alternative treatment. I have had pv for 22 years. I am a 54 year old female so I know I don't fit the profile. My only suggestion for itchy legs is to avoid hot showers or baths. For me the problem is worse when the red cell count is high so have the CBC often. I have them monthly.
I am a 37 year old female just diagnosed with PV, my attention was caught by a message by Pat C a 54 year old female, please e-mail me, I have so many questions, I would appreciate any help.
