Hello Maya! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Chronic kidney failure is a disease that causes kidney function decline. The kidneys work to filter and excrete body waste and excess fluid from the blood through urine. When chronic kidney failure that occurs is severe enough, there can be a buildup of fluid, electrolytes, and body waste, so that the person must undergo dialysis (hemodialysis) or kidney transplantation. Increased uric acid is a condition that occurs when a person experiences chronic kidney failure. Inflammation in the joints caused by the buildup of uric acid is called gout. Patients with chronic kidney failure can experience gout. In this pain, the pain is usually felt suddenly accompanied by red and swollen joints. In gout, administration of gout-lowering drugs is actually not recommended. There are other drugs that can be used to relieve gout attacks. You should discuss with your internal medicine doctor who has been dealing with your father all this time. Your doctor may give additional medicine to your father after checking your father's condition.
Itching in patients with chronic kidney failure can be caused by an increase in urea in the blood. The skin will become dry and look scaly. To reduce the itching that is felt, you can use a perfumed moisturizer for your father's skin. Do not let your father scratch his skin because it can actually make the itching felt even more severe. Your father also should not take a shower using antiseptic soap or water that is too hot. The itching that your father feels should also decrease after your father hemodialysis. Discuss again with your pediatrician, whether your father's hemodialysis schedule needs to be increased or made more frequently. Do not forget to always control the internist in accordance with the promised schedule.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
