Itching on the body after hemodialysis. Is clexane the reason?

i am doing hemodialysis for a year now and since i started i always get itching through my whole body a nd when i scratch it skin will become bumpy like map. This usually happens halfway my dialysis time of 4 hours. I was considering clexane as the cause of these itching. Am i right? because the doctor cannot figure it out...

Thanks for the query.
Looks like you get some sort of an allergic reaction while in hemodialysis.
One of the reasons can be heparin or clexane used during dialysis.
Some people also have an allergic reaction to the hemodialysis filter.
Thus speak to your nephrologist about trying a different kind of dialyser or doing dialysis without heparin.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
