The National Kidney Foundation estimates 35 million Americans suffer from chronic kidney disease, a number that grows every year. Symptoms of early kidney disease are usually subtle, so most people don't know something is wrong until their kidneys begin to fail. The only sure way to diagnose the disease is with blood and urine tests, but there are a few symptoms that can be tell tale signs of emerging kidney problems.
Aside from changes in urination and swelling from fluid retention, most kidney patients complain of severe chronic itching. As unfiltered waste builds up in the body, the immune system reacts by triggering nerve responses that cause itching. The severity of itching increases as the condition worsens, particularly in the days before and after dialysis treatments.
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), recommends capsaicin creams as an effective skin care regimen to help relieve itching associated with kidney disease, but capsaicin creams are meant to relieve pain and they are too hot for basic itch relief. Now there's a new anti-itch product made with the essence of hot peppers, that targets chronic itching without any burn, and kidney patients are praising this new anti-itch spray as the silver bullet for kidney related itching.
Our ThermaSkin anti-itch spray is an all natural formula made with capsaicin and other herbals, to help increase topical blood flow and desensitize nerve fibers. Although ThermaSkin spray contains hot pepper extract, the dosage is so small that there is no burning sensation. This unique formula is guaranteed to stop severe itching in less than a minute for most users.
When we launched ThermaSkin, our demographic was anyone with itchy irritated skin. Numerous studies have proved that capsaicin provides natural relief for a variety of common skin conditions, but we never thought about kidney disease until we started hearing from people around the world. Suddenly we began receiving messages from kidney patients praising ThermaSkin as the ultimate itch stopper. Finally there's an answer for kidney patients suffering from chronic itching and it's all possible thanks to the power of the pepper.
