Hi everyone, I haven't posted for a while, just wanted to know if anyone has an answer to a problem of very oily facial skin, what can be done about it? Thanks

the dermatologist told us to use a ZNP bar (soap)
you can get at Walgreens without a prescription.
it's kind of pricy ($10), and you have to ask for it at the pharmacy.

Thank you sooo much, I didn't know what to do, the skin is also flaky, does it help for that too?

Skin problems are pretty common with Parkinson's I think. My husband had the oily skin problem for years. In the past couple of years he has also had flaking and reddening of the skin, which comes and goes. The flakes are almost waxy. Turns out he has seborea and has several prescriptions to treat it. You might want to see a dermatologist to have it checked out. The one we see is actually quite knowledgeable about Parkinson's and related skin disorders. Good luck!
