What to Do with Skin Itching in Renal Failure

2013-03-27 08:35

Skin itching can be a remarked symptom of patients with Chronic Renal Failure. Based on some data, about 60 to 80% of Renal Failure patients will experience skin itching problems and nearly 86 to 95% of dialysis patients also have to bear the problem of skin itching.

In order to cope with skin itching in Chronic Renal Failure, patients should use a hypo-allergenic soap and avoid long and warm baths. After towel drying, they should apply a thick moisturizer while the skin is still damp. While these proper measures can only relieve the skin itching for Renal Failure patients to some extent, they can not deal with it from the root cause.

As skin itching is caused by the accumulation of waste products in the body, so the first thing for Renal Failure patients is to remove those wastes out of body. At Chronic Renal Failure, the kidneys can not function normally and they lose the ability to filter out wastes and excess fluid. The poor kidney function is likely to provide a chance for the need of dialysis treatment. Then why not try to repair kidney damage and enhance kidney function?

Kidney disease experts here recommend Chinese herbal medicines. The skin itching can be treated effectively after the wastes is filtered out of body through expanding blood vessels and improving blood circulation. As a matter of fact, the most important point is that Chinese herbal medicines help repair kidney damage and improve kidney function through a series of functions such as anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys, thus patients’ own kidneys can be saved instead of receiving a kidney transplant at last.

Of course, control the primary disease and keep a healthy diet are also very important in coping with skin itching and slowing down the development of Chronic Renal Failure. Feel free to ask when you have any questions about Chronic Renal Failure.
