Itchy Skin, Dry Skin

Itchy Skin, Dry Skin

I'm a caregiver for my mother. I've noticed that she has some dry spots on her skin /her face.

Been giving her High Dose Thiamine (2g)

But other than that it's turmeric, C/L 1.5 every 4 hours. Fish Oil, L-Theanine , Magnesium L Threonate.

She is 5'5 weighs 150 lbs. Hard to her to drink water. She is averaging 40 -48 oz a day. Not enough.

Any PwP (People with Parkinson's) experience this and have suggestions on the remedy?
Thanks in advance.

My Drs have said any liquid counts. Perhaps you can find something not too high in sugar that she prefers. I also have difficulty drinking enough water. Grapes, cucumbers ,jello also help with hydration. I hope you can find something that she is willing to try.
