How to Stop Itching After DialysisSkin itching is often a complaint of dialysis patients. There are many reasons that can contribute to itching. To know the reasons is helpful for us to find how to stop itching after dialysis.

What causes skin itch?

Though dialysis can replace your kidney function to filter the wastes and toxins from your body, it can not balance the electrolyte. Besides, inadequate dialysis often causes high phosphorus level. Phosphorus may combine with calcium to form phosphorus-calcium products, some of which are excreted by your skin, leading to skin itching.

Another reason may be the dry skin that causes skin itch. Because of dialysis, your skin can not excrete enough oil to moisture your skin.

Apart from the above, allergic to the dialyzer, blood tubing and so on can also cause skin itch.
