Hi Debrah, Just Just echoing patti an Belle, could be signs of some type od blockage going on. I have to say That Using stool softner, not laxative has helped me to keep asicites, amonia levels,and itchy to a bare minimum by just being able to have a good bowel movement every two days at least. Your stool can become a little hard and creat temp blockage until relieved. Sorry to be talking about #$%@ so early in the morning. But just a suggestion that hells for me. Are the kids excited to be back at school? I know my grandson was. I told my dauhter to enjoy it whilse it last. Hope you get this itchy situation solved pretty soon. You know nerves, certainly can cause itchy spells. I'm allergic to iodine and sulfur also.
Bless you and the Kids,
