Thanks for replying. Even though it was only one time that I took liquid Bentonite by itself, I will not be doing that again. I feel like the board moron/rebel here! I'm very new to everything, and desperate, and curious... How would the LB have caused the itching? I wasn't really constipated - I had several bowel movements that seemed to squeeze past the Bentonite blob - if that's what that was. I could feel the blob itself, but it was extremely hard to pass - I'm guessing because it had no solidity.
