Thank you for your question.
Itching is due to release of histamine in the body.
Antihistamines like hydroxyzine is something that can relieve itching from any cause, even if it is not from the kidneys.
With kidney dysfunction itching only happens when the disease is severe.
Your disease is only mild and should not cause itching, not at this stage.
Trust me on that.
Based on the creatinine level.
If it were severe your creatinine level would be very high i.e. more than 4 usually.
If it were severe you would expect retention of fluid in your body, reduced urine output, muscle weakness, shortness of breath among numerous other symptoms.
