Water Blister in Dialysis: Cause and TreatmentFor people with End Stage Renal Disease, or called kidney failure, they will have to take dialysis. It is indeed an effective way to improve the illness condition in a short time. However, it is not perfect as it has some side effects and people with different conditions will have different complications. Water blister occur in dialysis is very common. This article is about the cause and treatment of water blister in dialysis.

Cause

Water blister is a kind of skin problem. The blisters are located exclusively on sun-exposed areas (dorsum of both hands and scalp). The blister is fluid-filled and sometimes it is painful.

Water blister may affect 8 to 18% of the patients on hemodialysis. Firstly, even though the patients take dialysis, their kidney function is still losing because dialysis can only removing the excessive wastes and toxins but not repair the damaged renal tissues. Therefore, patients with dialysis may even see reduced kidney function. As a result, excessive water are kept inside the body due to the decreased GFR (glomerular filtration rate). Severe water-sodium retention may cause blisters when the fluid becomes trapped under your skin. What’s more, the deposited wastes and toxins in the skin are also the causes of blisters.

Treatment

For dialysis patients, the kidneys have lost most of the function to remove wastes and toxins, so ways to relieve water blister should not burden the kidneys. Therefore, I do not recommend you to take medicines, because most of them will produce wastes or toxins that are discharged by kidneys. Therefore, I would like to recommend you to try Hot Compress Therapy. This is a natural way to relieve water blister. Meanwhile, this therapy can improve kidney function. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it aims at treating kidney disease by enhancing the self-healing ability of kidneys. Therefore, the curative effects of Hot Compress Therapy is fundamental and significant.
