Relieve Skin Problems in CKD Stage 4

Relieve Skin Problems in CKD Stage 4Some persons with CKD Stage 4 may notice some unpleasant skin problems. The most common ones are itching and dry skin. Leaning why these skin conditions happen, and what can be done to relieve them.

▪ Itching

Healthy kidneys are responsible for filtering waste products from the blood. In CKD Stage 4, the kidneys are severely damaged and they lost their ability to filter the blood efficiently and the wastes build up. The accumulation of wastes causes the skin to itch, particularly on the legs.

Remedy: Creams and lotions may be applied to treat this problem, but treating the kidney disease itself is the best way to relieve itching. Please refer to 'Natural Treatment for Stage 4 Kidney Disease' for more information.

▪ Dry skin

When the kidneys are seriously damaged, the sweat glands and oil glands are changed, causing the skin to dry out. Dry skin can also lead to itching, or infections.

Remedy: Avoid long, hot showers or baths. Choose soaps that have natural, pure ingredients without harsh perfumes and chemicals. Bath products made with oatmeal are also good choices. Avoid creams or lotions with alcohol and take a moisturizing, high-water content gel, lotion or cream right after bathing, while the skin is still damp.

People with CKD Stage 4 can ask their doctors about proper treatments to relieve skin problems. Our online doctor is also available to offer free advice. Chat with them if you like to talk directly. Hope your problems can be solved soon!
