Hello I a 44 yo male that had a stent (kidney to bladder for kidney stones) a week ago... It burns and itches constantly. And temp is 96.3. Is this no?

String Theory: Those things are very annoying. The less time one's in, the better. Did they tell you how long until they'll get rid of the stone and then take it out? It might be "forgotten"unless you ask.Then ask again. Your symptoms are probably skin irritation. But that's a set-up for an infection, so watch it closely. If on the outside, a little bit of steroid cream might help; on the inside? Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more

I have had kidney stones for 2 weeks severe pain passing urine but now my skin is itching is this normal?

No sure But...: Itching is not part of kidney stones to my knowledge. But, besides allergic reaction possibly, there is a possibility of high phosphates and/or high parathyroid hormone levels, both can cause stones and itching. Also, high kidney numbers can result from stones and can cause itching. Would discuss with my doctor to check these if not done. ...Read more

I have had a kidney stone for 2 weeks. I now itch all over. Is this normal?

I have had a kidney stone for 2 weeks. I now itch all over. Is this normal?

No: Itching all over is not normal, with or without kidney stones. Kidney stones are unlikely to be the cause. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
