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.

End Stage Of Parkinson Help

My mum is in the end stage of Parkinsons. The doctors have now taken her off most of the medication she was on as they say that because she has had Parkinsons for almost 22 years the medications do not work as they should.
