Many people who undergo hemodialysis have itchy skin, which is often worse during or just after the procedure.

Oatmeal baths, cool compresses and cortisone creams can provide short-term relief on a scheduled basis to improve quality of life.

Extreme itch is related to the impaired kidney function in kidney failure patients, so to help patients make kidneys work again by repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function becomes one of methods to relieve skin itching to a certain degree. Also if kidney function can be recovered, dialysis times will be reduced. If kidney function can be increased to about 20%, dialysis will be stopped.
