    Hey I have had kidney and liver problems before (due to drinking and suicide attempts). I have heard that itching is a sign of liver and kidney problems and was wondering exactly what it was like. I have had some itchy symptoms in the last few months and was just wondering if it could all be related.

    First things first, winter can have a drying effect on the skin. Try lotion first, internal organ diagnoses second.

    When your kidney isnot filtering properly you can get itchy You need to tell your doctor okay so can get some blood test done. You can also get medication to decrease the itch feeling It could be also winter causes dry skin and itching too so best not to worry about it until you talk to doctor okay but do tell him
