Question: Does an epidural cause severe itching? YYYY@YYYY

Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Epidural doesn't cause itching. However, the drug used might not be friendly to you. In this case, it might be the drug used for the epidural and not the procedure. I will suggest that you report what drug was used in your case to me for review to see if this could have been an allergy reaction to it.

I hope this sheds some light and helps. I look forward reading from you for more insights and guidance. Until then, I wish you well.
