You haven't mentioned about colour of stool and serum alkaline phophatase level; these features help to differentiate between hepatocellular and obstructive jaundice. Anyway.
I would recommend ultrasound scan of abdomen.

Thanks for posting your query.

Itching is common in jaundice .

It occurs due to accumulation of bile products.

Jaundice needs to be treated properly whether obstructive or non-obstructive.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
