Brief Answer:
it is a rare but possible side effect

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Itching/pruritis (how it would be written in side effect profile) can occur in 1 to 2 % (1 or 2 persons out of 100) of persons who use this medication.

This means that it is a possible side effect though it does not occur commonly

It would be best to speak to your doctor about this possibility.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

I have PSC . however when I was first diagnosed I was told that I may have a variant . as this was in 2000 and I moved out of the area, I was then picked up a hepatologist locally. I have been symptom free until recently when I have had ascites with peritonitis which after treatment resolved. I then broke my hip and had a long gamma nail and dynamic screw fitted. I have since had pruritis and oedema which is not resolving. I have been looking into variants and donot have any IBD. and have responded well to steroids in the past due to asthma. I also have type 2 diabetes, insulin controlled. I have all my life been drug sensitive and am going through so many different meds to try to relieve this. please could you advise me if I should pursue this.

Could a Kenalog injection given 4-5 hours ago cause hematuria? My father just had bright fresh pink blood in his urine. He has dysuria most of the time, but has never had bleeding before in his life. Could it be related to the shot he received? He had 80 mg of Kenalog for the first time in his life (for arthritis pain and pruritis from allergies) just today. Thanks
