Hot Pepper Itch Remedy Targets Kidney Disease Patients Suffering From Chronic Pruritus
Date:3/4/2010

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases recommends capsaicin as an effective skin care regimen to help relieve itching associated with kidney disease, but capsaicin creams are meant to relieve pain and they tend to be extremely hot. Now there's a new skin spray made with the essence of hot peppers that targets chronic itching without any burn.

Schenectady, NY (PRWEB) March 4, 2010 -- 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 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 as an effective skin care regimen to help relieve itching associated with kidney disease, but capsaicin creams are meant to relieve pain and they tend to be extremely hot. Now there's a new skin spray made with the essence of hot peppers that targets chronic itching without any burn.

ThermaSkin is an all natural spray formulated with capsaicin and other herbals to help increase topical blood flow and desensitize nerve fibers. Although ThermaSkin contains hot pepper extract, the dosage is so small that there is no burning sensation. This unique formula is guaranteed by the manufacturer 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 prove 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 country. Suddenly we began receiving messages from kidney patients praising ThermaSkin as the ultimate itch stopper," says Wayne Perry, Founder of GSC Products, manufacturer of ThermaSkin.

Known as Uremic Pruritus, chronic itching is a big problem for most kidney patients. Although researchers understand the basic cause, they aren't sure which pruritogenic substance actually triggers the itching. Kidneys filter blood to remove excess waste and water, but when they stop working, uremic toxins build up to wreak havoc on the entire body. ThermaSkin works by switching off the body’s itch mechanism, thus increasing the quality of life for kidney patients.

GSC Products is presently seeking medical researchers to conduct a clinical study using their ThermaSkin spray with kidney patients. Interested participants should contact the company directly through their official website at Greensations.com. Free samples are available for qualified medical and media personnel upon request.
