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.
