Skin rash on head and face with Parkinson's

My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease last year. Lately he has been having rashy patches on the skin behind his ears and on his face. Has anyone found a good way to treat them? Thanks much.

Re: Skin rash on head and face with Parkinson's

We got some good info that I'll pass on - the condition is seborrheic dermatitis, and we've tried the treatment for 4 days with very good results - daily shampooing with a dandruff shampoo - on head and face (careful around eyes, but facial skin can apparently take some shampooing). Then twice a day rubbing an antifungal cream (like 2% miconazole cream, available over the counter) into the skin wherever there are these rashy spots. My husband's skin already looks smooth and clear.
