I am using E45 lotion several times daily. My legs look like they have dandruff!
Is this just a personal problem or are there more sufferers out there?
my dad did have that but it did come and go but means your using the e45 cream quite a bit even though you can use it as many times as you like why dont you see a doctor to see what he could recommend?
Sorry, I am not being very helpful. I have noticed that the rash seems to coincide with illness eg an infection, or particularly stressful times. I now use Aqueous cream BP several times a day. The rash gets worse before it gets better but it does eventually clear
i will try the Aqueous cream - see if it cures the dandruff on my legs. lol
Our GP suggested we use Head and Shoulders shampoo . Try it for a week , and then as needed . I dont see any reason why it cant be used occassionally all over the body . It is helping my husband
My daughter has started using it after seeing the difference in my skin.
I bought mine from Boots chemists, maybe the oil based products would help some of you too.
I too suffer from dry skin (especially around my nose)it is so bad that it peels off in big flakes. This only started when I was diagnosed with PD and started on Requip XL. I have to have regular facials (once a month) which does help and I use E45 lotion, I do still get some flakey skin but its not so bad now as to what it was.
before using the cream I have now, I had visions of the wee trail of skin following me and my o/h with a brush and shovel.
Something else to try .. Our GP told us to use head and shoulders . I also use this once a week and pay attentions to my husbands eyebrows which I trim to keep short they also become crusted and inside the ears .
I was nervous about using it thinking it might be too strong but it has no adverse effects so far
Same here. Very embarrassing, I can’t shave because my skin bleeds, so I keep a beard. Which sheds blizzards of dandruff. Dry flaky skin all around my nose, and on my hands which sometimes look like they are peeling. Parkinson’s! Such a generous disease!!
Hi everyone I know a little late to this topic, but I am like a scaly fish my skin just flakes off, but know
I have got some acquiesce cream and Aveeno cream which seems to help a lot. I hope this helps some one else.
All the best Raz
Well, I’ve sorted the problem I was having with dry skin, beardruff and itchiness. I take about two table spoons of flax seed oil, one Vit E capsule per day. I also use a 100% organic/natural beard oil, and also have found a 100% organic soap for both beard and hair. I also use coconut il on my beard as an alternative to the beard oil, just for the change every once in a while. Almost no itch, no flakes, just a healthy looking beard and skin. For me, the key was to stop using ANY chemicals in a shampoo/conditioner. So out went the Head and Shoulders (which only made things worse) and everything with so much as a single “chemical” other than fully organic.
My husband only started flaking once he had PD, has a small patch on the back of his head, on both jowls, more so in one ear than the other, and in eyebrows/on eyelid. The GP prescribed Canestan, which didn’t really help, and I personally don’t think should be used on face. Then tried Vaseline, E45, Head & Shoulders, not much improvement. His scratching was driving me to distraction, on top of the fact that his eyes looked so bad when he went out, so I read @MB420 post, and I thought let’s give it a go. He now takes flaxseed oil and Vit E daily, and after removing the scales with olive oil and cotton buds, lather him with coconut oil. Has certainly improved, but find you do need to keep on top of it. Tried the Aveeno wash, which didn’t really help but found that the Aveeno moisturiser does help. I thought try him on the coconut oil before investing in organic product. So, thanks again @MB420 for your advice.
