      On the full dose of Esbriet for about two weeks and have developed itchy skin. Chest, back, legs, etc. Not the end of the world, but it sure is annoying. Anyone else? Have you found an answer?

      I had some itchy skin and rashes(from the sun) when first taking Esbriet but they definitely diminished over time. I still have a sunscreen stick to rub on the back of my hands when driving or golfing.

      Interesting, Rob. I stopped Esbriet for two weeks at the suggestion of my pulmo, but the itchiness continued. We do have a cat, but have had cats for a long time. No problem with the sun. Still looking for an answer. If you are in fact a dog, this might explain your itchiness.

      I also have itching with Esbriet and I have been on it for two years now.  Backs of my hands, back, legs, ankles…you name it.  Lotion helps sometimes.  When it gets especially bad on the backs of my hands I have used cortisone cream, which seems to stop it.
