In brief: Not likely

Stage 3 kidney disease does not usually cause pruritis.
Do have it checked though as it may have got worse.

In brief: Maybe

Renal disease can contribute to various skin problems.
Patients who are on dialysis are also at risk for the same problems. I recommend you see your doctor. You may need to be seen by a dermatologist.
