Along with progresses of illness condition, a build-up of waste in the blood makes the itching worse. Therefore, one of urgent things is how to deal with the condition?

To know the treatment, we should have a well understanding about the causes of dry skin in kidney disease.

Actually, dry skin is a common condition for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) or Kidney Failure. Normally, our kidneys are important organs which are endowed with numerous function, guaranteeing our body health. For example, they are responsible for discharging extra wastes and extra fluid from the body, keeping electrolyte and acid-base balance. However, for the damaged kidneys, they are unable to function well. Due to accumulation of wastes and toxins, the systems of the body can be disordered, leading to some symptoms. Kidney failure may make changes in the sweat glands and oil glands. Without the proper amount of oil, the skin becomes dry. In addition, dehydration is also a another cause of dry skin for kidney disease patients.
