Brief Answer:

Yes Eliquis can cause itching and rash.

Detailed Answer:

Hi!

Yes Eliquis can lead to itching and rash.

You can take antihistaminic like tablet Cetrizine once or twice daily depending on the intensity of itching and apply Cortisone cream on the affected areas twice daily.

This should help in relieving the symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query.
