People with Parkinson’s often experience changes to their skin.

Changes in the skin could include oiliness and red, itchy, flaky skin known as seborrheic dermatitis.

European Parkinson’s Disease Association said: “The most common change in the skin with Parkinson’s is increased oiliness, particularly around the forehead, nose and scalp, where the sebaceous glands are concentrated.

“Parkinson’s can cause an excess secretion from these glands of an oily substance called sebum which keeps skin supple and provides protection, but in excess results in the skin looking greasy and shiny.”
