Has Anyone Had Skin Problems Such As Itchiness And Rashes?

Has Anyone Had Skin Problems Such As Itchiness And Rashes?

I'm taking Mirepex and Sinemet and 2 years ago I developed itchy welts. It was diagnosed as Intertrigon (a fungal rash very common in Florida). I just about cleared that up and now I have Lichen Planus (itchy red bumps). The internet says it's an auto immune reaction. I'm using cortisone cream which doesn't work very well. Has anyone experienced this and, if so, how are you treating it? Do you think it's related to PD or the meds used to treat PD?

What Can Cause An Itchy Red Rash?

What Can Cause An Itchy Red Rash?

I have developed an annoying rash on arms and legs. It is not a rash that I have ever had before.
Did not eat anything different from usual diet.
We had a health scare with my husband about the time the rash appeared. My Dr. does not want me to take any antihistamines I am dried out enough! Eyes, skin and mouth.
Thanks for any help!

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.

Reddish Feet

Reddish Feet

My feet
from toe up to sock level has transformed into reddish color for more than a year now. My internist doctor prescribed me water pill to drain excessive fluids from my body. But nothing came out. Cardiologist tested me for heart echo exams and test my feet
